Belated Birthday Post

Ok, this is the last birthday post for this year (I swear!). I wanted to post this earlier this month, but my computer wasn't recognizing the memory card from my camera and I couldn't find the USB cable for the life of me.
Blah, blah, blah, enough excuses...

This was my last birthday celebration. With my family! All of my siblings and my new nephew went over to my Mom's for drinks, delicious food (my Mom is the best cook, no really...) and cake!

But first, how about some gratuitous shots of my adorable nephew Casey first!

That's a Johnny Cash Folsom Prison onesie he's wearing...yup! He's a cool kid.

Casey and Mom! (Or Kim as we like to call her)

Casey insisted that he take over the picture taking so I could enjoy my own party!

My Mom made these delicious focaccia bread things. One kind had tomatoes and basil and pesto and the other was potato and caramelized onions. Yum! And my brother brought Half Pints' new beer over for us to taste. It's not on the market was a Mexican dark lager they're calling "Noche De Los Alebrijes". I'm not sure how drunk people are going to order it. I can barely say that sober! lol! It was delicious! I can't wait for it to be in stores this fall (Half Pints is a local brewery that my brother works at). 

We love Half Pints beer. And this Transformer does too! (maybe he was a Dinobot, I'm not sure)

This photo really encompasses the chaos that my family is!  Never a dull moment!

I really wish I had some more photos to share, but I was busy visiting and it's really hard to take photos that aren't blurry when there are 2 dogs and a 10 month old flying around the room! lol!

So instead, how about some pictures of cake! Yeah, cake! This is a vegan spice cake my Mom made. My brother Matt's girlfriend Katie has some severe milk and dairy allergies so we eat a lot of vegan food when she's around. We call it "Katie friendly". It was Lisa friendly too! This cake was delicious! lol!

Thanks for indulging my in one last birthday post. You won't have to put up with any more until next year!

  2. Fear not, it's been over two weeks since my birthday and I haven't had a moment yet to do either of the posts I was planning/hoping to about it. I figure that so long as they happen at some point in 2012, I'll still be doing fairly well ;D

    It looks like you had a blast (your family members all look so cool, and Casey is, to say the least, too darling for words!), and that this was definitely a great birthday celebration (worthy of blogging about however often you desire).

    And OMG! I ADORE that onesie! I want to buy one and hoard it for the day I may have children. So amazing!


  5. Meganne - Love your blog! Great Photos! Following! :)

    Jessica - I don't feel so bad anymore... thanks! And yes, Casey is darling. Most of my pictures were of him! Lol! Proud Auntie!

    JMo - Hmmm... I'm not sure about that one. I'd have to check out one of your family events before I make my decision. ;)

    Janey - Thank you! I know right? My sister has good taste. :)
