Our Twenty-Something's Celebrate Birthday's

Leaa and her sister Nicole celebrated birthday's this past weekend. Helping to sing Happy Birthday was Werner & Cathy, Katie and Cara, Leaa & Jesse, Nicole, Christa and Stewart, Justin, Carolyn and Alyson and Ford. It was family fun having everyone here except we were missing Carl and Marsha who stayed home to take care of an under the weather granddaughter, Livi. And we didn't have our perpetual wheel of motion, granddaughter Kilee, as well as Charles, Angie and Ian. We missed you all...

Birthday girl Nicole, fighting off a sore throat of her own, still smiled for the camera before blowing out her birthday candle. It was a tough crowd as they wouldn't let her blow out the candles on her cake :)

Birthday girl Leaa enjoying two of life's staple pleasures, chocolate cake and red wine... :)

Two cakes were requested. Nana Joy's Chocolate Sheet Cake above is a perennial favorite and one Aly makes often. Each bite literally melts in your melt. Seriously, it melts. It's that good. Kids and adults love it! You may notice we went "lite" on the candles this year :)

The other request was for a Strawberry Cheesecake. Aly complained about how the cheesecake "looked" but I didn't hear anyone complain about that or the taste! We all love Alyson's cheesecakes.
