A Weekend of Birthdays

Last weekend we dedicated ourselves to the serious celebration of two special ladies in the family. On Friday night we had fun wishing Happy Birthday to Grammy Ruth on her actual birthday (we Hornes are very bad about celebrating the “day of”!). Special thanks to Papa Horne for providing the delicious tenderloin for the meal!

Here is Grammy getting some help blowing out the candles on her cake!

On Saturday we made up for the fact that we hadn’t yet found a good time to wish Auntie Sandra a Happy Birthday, given her special day was way back in June!! I did get to enjoy house-hunting with her though on her actual birthday, something we probably will not be able to replicate every year, so that is nice.

Abigail got pretty into the cake-decorating on Saturday:

She picked and helped mix all the icing colors, and even did these roses all by herself (wish I’d thought to take a pic before putting on candles!):
