Bobsey twins, birthday boy

Remember the two mini-cardigans I knit? The first one fit my mom as I hoped it would, and I finally got the buttons and i-cord loops on the second one, so we wore them to church last Saturday. The photo isn't great because Brian was the only available photographer when we needed one, but there it is. My mom said, "I can remember a time you would have DIED before you would have worn matching outfits." I guess it just goes to prove that we all grow up sometime!

We held Brian's birthday party Sunday afternoon, which was a lot of fun. He wanted a carrot cake decorated with a photo of him, Jackson, and Jackson's dad Jack, so that is what he got. If you look closely, you can see Brian licking his lips in anticipation. The whole wheat and honey recipe is the same one we used for our wedding cake more than 23 years ago; it IS tasty.
All good things must come to an end, they say; our week of family fun ended today when I took my folks to the airport.

That's it for now at . . .

You made those? I hope to someday be able to create something other than a scarf :)
Happy Birthday Brian!
