My birthday was a couple of days ago, and we had the party on the actual day (unusually for us) since neither Annie nor I had to work. The party was at Annie's house, and we were supposed to have a fun day of cooking together but she ended up being sick so I mostly cooked by myself. I made many pretty dishes, and even remembered to bring my camera to document them, but I forgot to take any pictures of the food or festivities. I took pictures beforehand:
Here's Maria helping me procrastinate
by knitting on my baby sweater (I got it to the point where I have to get buttons before I can knit any further).
I took pictures afterwards:
Rachael came over for a sleepover and here she is, computing into the night.
And the next day I took pictures of some of my presents:
Socks knitted by Annie and mitties knitted by Ana,
and strawberries bottled by Billy Warner and Carmen.
