in celebration of community

a surprise midnight birthday cake

Little Shea-kins and I were blessed, this past weekend, to be able to pile into our car with pillows, presents and a finger-frosted cake (she’s 3, but she loves baking!) and drive up to a House wherein waited Family, Decorations and Laughter. We spent the weekend enjoying community, that vital part of life we never really appreciate ’til we’re a part of it.

of course, locking ourselves out of the bedroom

and sleeping it all off

However you celebrate birthdays in your family, remember, it’s all about the love.
