October 28, 2008

Even though most of us were sick for Yosef and Biniam's birthday, we tried to make things festive.

The kids had a blast playing outside in the leaves with Kevin while I worked on dinner, hotdogs with homemade buns. Yum! They turned out pretty good, if I do say so myself.

After dinner we had Banana Cupcakes with Honey-Cinnamon Frosting--my favorite recipe for cupcakes so far, I think. They are really so simple to make and taste SO GOOD. Plus they have bananas in them so I figure there's at least a LITTLE something healthy in there! Thanks Martha!

Then the boys enjoyed opening some gifts.
Very simple, and I think a good time was had by all!
And now I'm off to Starbucks, in my pj's, to get that free cup of coffee for voting. If you haven't voted, GO DO IT, if for no other reason than free Starbucks!!!!!!

A giant box of diapers!!! Yay! Thanks for the birthday gift mommy! You're the best! :)

Mike and Rachel said...

Tamara said...

Happy birthday boys!! BTW Brianna, I LOVE your back yard and that little play house!!

Brianna Heldt said...

Rachel---NOTHING! you don't have to bring ANYthing!!! just go to starbucks today (we went thru the drivethru in our pjs) and say you voted, and you get free tall coffee! WOOHOO!!!!!!!!!!!

Jeannett, ha! Your comment made me laugh out loud! (And these kids SHOULD be thanking me for buying those diapers--it's expensive business keeping those bottoms dry!!!)

Tamara, thanks! I should really post more pics of our home, I just haven't been motivated b/c everything's half-done. But the playhouse ROCKS, and was here when we moved in!
