Happy Birthday Mom

Technically this post is belated birthday because it was actually yesterday. But the family got together to celebrate the day before her birthday. So it all evens out , right? Anyway... my mom turned 60 on October 6th. 60 years old, peeps. That's huge! My brother and I took her out for a nice steak dinner. Then we went over to my sister's house for cake and presents.

My smart ass sister was in charge of getting the cake. She decided she wanted 60 individual little candles on it. Seriously. It was no easy feat to light all of them. It took 3 of us. And even so there was still candle wax dripping all over while we were burning our fingers and singeing off arm hairs. Here's the finished product. This pic cracks me up. Can you see the look on mine and Tatum's faces? Our mouths are hanging open in sheer astonishment of all that fire. That thing generated some heat!
She managed to blow them all out in one breath. But then we all started coughing and choking on the smoke. LOL! We thought the smoke detectors might go off at any second.
This homemade birthday card is hysterical. If you like raunchy humor, I guess. But ya gotta give the 11 yr old props for artistic creativity. I like how he captured the aroma of the fart with the deep green color. And the chef holding his nose just makes the illustration seem so realistic. But just in case you couldn't see the small details, he pointed out the "lighter in hand" so there was no question the guy was actually lighting the fart on fire. LMAO... no pun intended.
This is the cake after we slaughtered it. Everyone was very precise about which piece they wanted. Some wanted corners. Some wanted flowers. Some wanted the middle. This was the end result. The birthday cake massacre.
I forgot my camera so there are just a few pics that I swiped from my sis. It was a nice evening with the fam. I hope you enjoyed your birthday mom! The big 6-0!!

I LOVE how you cut up the cake! We do that too....just give the pieces to whoever wants what.

And the card....well, quite frankly, it could have been written by one of my boys. Yep, it's a kid's card, all right.
