Happy Birthday David!!!!

Dave is going to kill me for posting this picture but Henry took it with the camera and I just is sums up Dave so well.  So full of life and so much fun!!!  He is the best in every way.  We love you Daddy!

We had such a great day!  Good food, family, and CAKE!!!!!  Henry did the candles on the cake and both Henry and Jetta helped with the decor.  Of course Henry thought it was his birthday so we had to do a second lighting of the candles while he blew them out but he loved singing happy birthday to his Daddy!!!  

Two Cuties!!

Homemade butter Mmmmmm!!

I am no Martha or Betty but I did just make butter!!!  Found the recipe online and thought I would try.  It is fantastic and so easy.  

2 cups heavy cream
1/4 tsp salt (optional)

Put heavy cream in food processor/mixer and beat until it separates, turning yellow and very clumpy.  Strain extra liquid and then put butter in a bowl and mash with a spoon until all remaining liquid is has been removed.  If desired add salt and mix it in.  This is so delicious and my 3 year old loved watching the process.  So fun!!!

Really it is time for spring now!

This morning we woke up to 2 inches of snow and by the afternoon we had about 5. It is the middle of April and I need to have long days at the park with warm sunshine! I am so tired of winter and believe it or not Dave would agree with me. All of you who know Dave know that he loves his winters, so it really must be time for spring.


We have a little tradition at our house that I did growing up. When strawberry begins you have strawberry short cake for dinner and that is it. It is not quite strawberry season but I could not help myself. I am so tired of the winter weather I needed something a bit springy in my life so we enjoyed!
