Happy Birthday!

Today, we went up to grandma and grandpa's and had a big BBQ with family. The kids had a great time with their cousins playing pretty much all afternoon on a slip'n slid! Great food, fireworks and each other's company, it was a great way to spend a day.



Well, yesterday was my hubby's birthday. Since I had been sick we really didn't have any big plans. I decided that we will dine-in and watch a movie as a Family. I cooked his favorite stuff. I asked the children to "decorate" the room for the party (so I could cook without being distracted). They had so much fun doing this.

Ta-da




I made, Inari-sushi



Rolled- sushi



Japanese flavored deep fried chicken



And of course, the birth day cake.



He loves chocolate. So, I made a triple layerd chocolate cake. Sometimes doing something low key as a family is nice too. He loved his birth day cards from the kids and was able to just relax on the couch.

Happy Birthday honey!!

On Monday I will post my finished quilt. Here is the bias tape I made for the quilt.



See you on Monday!

I agree with Danielle. I wish my "low key" was like that. Our low key usually includes hot dogs and chips!

My mouth is watering looking at all the yummy food. But it's the cake that just makes me melt! It's odd, but the older I get, the more I love the sweets.
