Happy birthday, Mom! To celebrate, we gathered at our place for a burrito bar! Mer and Lil' Kate showed up early so we could start prepping the ingredients. Mmm, taco beef!
Uncle Ben read Kate his favorite book in an attempt to calm down her birthday excitedness.
Mer brought delicious Shagbark tortilla chips. The BEST!
Dad was in charge of margaritas, using a recipe he used to make many years ago.
Kate was his margarita assistant.
They were DELICIOUS! Cheers!
Kate decorated this wrapping paper herself. Isn't it gorgeous!?
Dad got Mom the most awesome present ever!! Our local portrait photography and custom framing studio, Lamborn's, fosters kitties in the hopes that customers will adopt them. That's where Mom adopted Petey. While he was still living at the shop, Lamborn's made a portrait of him and it was for sale! Dad bought it for Mom!
Look at how handsome and glamorous he looks! This portrait looks like it belongs on the wall of a king's castle!
And THEN, Mom got an iPad! From all of us!!! YAY!!!!!! Super duper exciting! If anyone can have a lot of fun with an iPad, it's definitely Mom.
And then, as if there could possibly be room for anything else exciting, it was time to EAT! Beef, peppers, onions, mango, avocado, sweet potato, rice, cheese. BURRITO BAR!
I made a coconut cake. Kate picked out the candles.
What in the heck is going on with my HAIR?! It's all swooped!
Happy birthday to MOOOOOOOOM!
Make a wish!
