Here Andrew is cutting the cake for all to enjoy! We had never bought an ice cream cake before, but have had it at friends' houses before. This one was SOOO delicious!!! By the way, does anyone have a recipe for how to make ice cream cake??? I'd love to find out how to do it!
Yes, the cake was so good, and COLD too! :)
I hesitated to share the following picture, as we still don't have everything put back in place after cleaning out our bookshelves and under the hutch and all the school drawers, so our house is a bit of a wreck...... Also, the big sheet is down, which looks funny, but is what we use as a big screen when we project movies.
Anyway, I did decide to post the picture as it is of me when I opened my gift from Jacob: a picture (in a beautiful frame) that a friend of mine took that she was selling copies of at the convention! :) I'll try to get a better picture of it some time in the near future.
It was a busy, special day... Our guys had to be out of doors all afternoon, as the 2 semis that were supposed to come for our corn on Friday decided to come today. Also, Mom and Jacob were busy packing, and Mom and I made chicken enchiladas from scratch (shells and all), so we were busy, but we did take some time to play a couple games together (the Monopoly card game and Foosball), and this evening, we watched a movie... I also had time to play piano for quite a while.
Also, what helped to make this day special was all the kind notes from friends!!! Two of my dear friends (who are sisters) called me from MI and played and sang a version of "Happy Birthday" that they'd made up just for me. :)
It was a lovely day!
