Marcus' birthday, and more

Marcus was gone on his birthday :o( so we celebrated on Friday :o)

Carrot cake with cream cheese frosting.

We gave him a tenor ukelele for his he and Bunny (or I!) can play duets! Also this past week, our sport court was finally finished:

I think this was Marcus' favorite part of his birthday week. ;o)

On an unrelated note, here are some blueberry pies I made for a church function:

I love making lattice pies; they are my favorite in terms of beauty. So classic! And blueberries pies are my favorite to make because they are easy. So a good combination all around. The kids helped by "cleaning up" the pie crust trimmings for me. Very considerate of them. ;o)

  1. Your court makes Justin very jealous...I guess more incentive for us to visit now! Did you make the cake? Looks like your family is doing very well!

  2. You are welcome any time...all the time...come out to see us! Justin can even pitch a tent on the sport court so when he wakes up he can roll out of bed and play basketball!

    Yes I made the cake, in my "spare time" while Marcus was gone for 3.5 days. It was a labor of love. :o). Luckily grammae came over Thurs eve so I could frost it (and take a shower, but not at the same time).
