This weekend we celebrated my Joe’s 30th birthday! We had a surprise visit from my wonderful in laws and brother in law, amazing cake from Smallcakes, fireworks at Bridgestreet, a chat with Santa and so much more! It was a whirlwind and not everything went according to my plan, i.e. rained out trip to the garden, hour + wait for bowling…but it was still a blast and I’d love to share some pics with you!
We kicked off the weekend by surprising Joe with his favorite cake –funfetti with chocolate buttercream from Smallcakes in Huntsville (OH EM GEE) and a visit from his parents and Judy’s new favorite guy, Uncle Tony. I can’t believe I pulled off the surprise! It was so stressful but so worth it for this guy!
Wish I’d gotten a better picture of the cake before we all demolished it! #bloggerfail
On Saturday, we went to the Kris Kringle market in Madison bright and early so the kids could take a picture with Santa but of course Santa wasn’t arriving until 1030 and we had to head downtown at 11 for the Norman Rockwell exhibit–#againwiththefail
I can’t complain because I did get to meet the amazing Ashley of Della’s Kitchen! Seriously she is so sweet and her stuff is so cute and not to mention, affordable! Be still my heart!
Also managed a few pretty cute pics of the kiddos before heading downtown!
And man the Norman Rockwell exhibit should not be missed! We all loved it–and I mean all of us–kids, grandparents and all!
What a beautiful weekend to kick off the holiday season!
