On Saturday, Caleb and I did gifts with Daddy first thing. I whipped up some homemade biscuits for breakfast and we lounged around for the better part of the morning. Really, no gifts we could have given him this year are better than waking up to this little face though. Bed head and all. Side note: I only wish I looked this cute with a bad case of bed head.
I didn't take any pictures of the birthday cake as, quite honestly, it wasn't the most beautiful cake I've ever created. For some reason, the last two cakes I've made haven't wanted to come out of the cake pans after I've pulled them from the oven. Despite coating the pans with layers and layers of Pam to prevent it, the bottoms of the cakes still stuck to the pans, requiring some pretty fancy 'stitch work' with icing once I was ready to frost them. So frustrating. I'm thinking I might actually switch back to store-brand cooking spray since I haven't seemed to have any luck with the Pam. Despite not looking too pretty, the butter cake with creamy chocolate frosting was absolutely delicious. And after all, it's taste that matters most when it comes to dessert, am I right? Though I didn't get any pictures of the cake, I did think to whip out my phone and take a few shots of dinner at Outback.
The Birthday Boy!
Some of the sisters (between B and I, we have 5!)
Caleb hoping for a bite of someone's food...
And of course, Pops came through! Caleb ate more than any of us that night!
Yesterday, B and I went to church, went on a walk, and hung out until game time. We watched the Superbowl at home. We whipped up some french onion dip, pigs in a blanket and mozzarella sticks and vegged out with Caleb. Although the game was a bit of a disappointment (we were hoping for one more Superbowl for Peyton Manning), we really enjoyed the halftime show with Bruno Mars. We agreed that it was the best one we'd seen in years. We also agreed that the commercials were just so-so. Nothing that really took our breath away this year. We did enjoy these Budweiser ones though:
Today, the hubby and I are both at home. It's grey, raining and chilly here - the perfect day to stay home and do just what my hubby was hoping to do. Watch "Groundhog Day" on replay. All. Day. Long. Sigh. The things we do for love:)
