Whew! We did it. Two birthdays on the same day!
We started Friday night with both girls having sleepovers. We had a High School Musical cake!!! Here’s Ms. In Charge; now a ten year old!
Today we went to church, opened gifts, and I took a nap. I’m getting too old to celebrate this much. The birthday dinner request was steak, mashed potatoes, and green beans. Yum! I guess that’s why we had all these kids. Good birthday dinners!
Then…..banana cream pie. That was Superblonde’s request for her 15th birthday!
But first, a little chaser of whipping cream.
It was My Hero’s idea!
Here’s the recipe. It was really good!
Oh, I almost forgot. In the midst of all the napping and partying, I photographed Hypotenuse!
It’s wonderfully soft and drapes beautifully. I love all of the Handmaiden yarn, but this Silk Maiden was really fun to knit with! Here’s one more shot, before I move on.
There’s been a lot of knitting going on this weekend, in spite of all the partying. I haven’t had a cold in years, but I think there’s an elephant sitting on my chest. I told My Hero that I’m not trying to be self centered or anything, but breathing is my first priority. So, in order to not stress my poor lungs too much, I put in a lot of knitting time.
Unfortunately, you’re going to have to wait to see what I’ve been working on, because I have to sit and try to breathe, and I also need to digest that banana cream pie!
