Friday was my mother in law Teresa's 60th birthday, obviously a party was in order. In preparation Katie and I baked 96 cupcakes-half carrot cake and half chocolate- with cream cheese icing.

Gift wise, I finally finished the little embroidery piece with Carina's lovely pattern, (check out her etsy shop here.)

(I didn't follow the pattern exactly, what fun would that be? I also added the "Take Joy".)

Friends, neighbors and family came with potluck dishes in tow, and the swimming, fishing, eating, birthday partying lasted till the moon was bright. What a fun night!
