Happy 50 and Happy Birthday

An older couple in our church, Ray and Judy Baumann's 50th
wedding anniversary is next week, but they're leaving town today.
So we made a cake for them and brought it to church yesterday
and Mom made Judy a beautiful corsage too.

Samantha's birthday was last week but we had her party at our house in the evening
yesterday. I'm glad she had a good time. Nora was a little bubble of excitement.

Happy birthday!
Samantha wanted to serve everyone her birthday cake.

Nora is fascinated by the little yellow roses.

Annah made Samantha this beautiful blanket!

Of course, Nora eneded up with the balloon. She was rubbing people's faces with it.

  1. Such a beautiful cake and the purple blanket is lovely too! x

  2. What fun parties. :) Both cakes looked great. I may have to try a homemade cookie cake.

    Thanks for sharing.

  3. Your sister made that quilt? It's gorgeous! Nice job on the anniversary cake, too -- love the fresh flowers.

  4. Yes she did. The fresh flowers give it an elegant look.
