An Adventurous Birthday

This story will be told backwards because well, that's how the pictures uploaded. This is the end result of Noah's birthday. The day began well enough with a delicious stew bubbling in the kitchen. Which of course Noah added water to and made a little watery, but still delicious. Then I made a cake. This is how the cake got eaten...In a bowl with frosting smeared all over it...

The biscuits turned out delicious until I dropped them in the front lawn...
And it would have been a beautiful dinner outside if the bees hadn't begun to attack...
And we had to return to the partially smokey kitchen.
What might have been a beautiful, perfect, delicious birthday turned into a smokey and clumsy evening. I had such dreams...


Of being the perfect wife with a perfect, beautifully frosted birthday cake. But instead...

And so Noah's first birthday as a married man was a bit dramatic, but luckily he didn't seem to mind.

Oh, your poor biscuits. What a tragic accident. I'm sure Noah enjoyed his bowl of cake and frosting and appreciates your efforts. Happy belated birthday Noah.

great~ I loved the backwards theme as well. Very funny. I think Andrew and I have a few stories like that, not necessarily on birthdays but when we were trying to really make a special meal and it seemed to get all messed up. Oh well life goes on, I'm glad you posted what was meant to be a lovely birthday. BTW Happy Birfday Noah

Great story Beck. And it will be ten times better when you can tell your babies all about it. =).

I'm sure Noah LOVED it no matter what.
