I am so far behind on posting about the Birthdays around here. So, I decided to put them all together in one big post.
We could pretty much have a birthday a month around here except for, four of my boys were all born in November. Faith's actual due date was in November also.
I still have a cake for each birthday, but it is getting to be a bit much. I have usually let each child pick out their own cake from a bakery like Walmart, but the older they get, the more they want me to bake something special.
I will start with Jeremy. His birthday is in August, but we did not get to celebrate then. We were actually traveling to Virginia for my sister-in-law's funeral on his birthday. I told him we would make up for it sometime. Well, it took longer than expected because, between his schedule and mine, it was hard to coordinate. I finally said let's do this! I found an evening he did not have to work and planned to have his Birthday dinner and a cake. It just happened to be early November!
Jeremy requested Lasagna for dinner and a Blueberry Pound cake for his cake. I haven't made homemade lasagna for many years until we were visiting my Mom in September. My two oldest son's were not there, so they wanted me to make it again.
So, the day arrived and I worked on making the cake and making lasagna. I had the children help me clean up so we could celebrate that evening. Well, when Jeremy came home from work , he was feeling pretty sick, so he went straight to bed. When it was time for dinner, he came up and laid on the couch. He was shivering and he had a fever. He could not eat anything, he felt so bad. So we had Jeremy's dinner and cake without him. It was a few more days before he could eat, so we saved some cake for him. I felt so bad for him!
