birthday time

February brought our first two family birthdays since we've been here.  We had a really fun time celebrating together.
For John's birthday, we went out to wings with all the friends who work for the same company in our city.  We had a little cake celebration as a family.  John and I got to go on a date night and watch Les Mis that night, too. It was a really great day. 

This is what you do when you can't find candles for the cake!  : )
Catie's birthday was at the end of the month.  She was SO excited to turn 6!  I can't believe our precious, beautiful girl is already 6.  We had a little family celebration at home.  But Catie's REAL birthday wish was to have a sleepover with Miss Jessica and 2 friends.  Jessica was a superhero and hosted a party for all 3 girls.  They decorated cupcakes, had a royal tea party, and had a blast together.
Here we are singing "Happy Birthday."  Cutie girl was a little embarrassed. 
Catie wanted angel food cake for her home celebration.  We couldn't find an angel food cake pan anywhere, and it didn't turn out so great in a 9x13 pan.  For a last minute save, I cut the cake into hearts, iced the, and put on cute sprinkles.  Whew!  It worked.
Here's the sleepover.  (Zach made cupcakes to send over for decorating!  What a great brother!)
Cute girls
Miss Jessica is only gonna be here for another 5 weeks or so.  We're going to miss her SOOOOO much!
Happy birthday, John and Catie.  I loved celebrating you guys!!!
