Sunday Celebrations

Sunday, April 29th, was Hope's 16th birthday, baby Oliver's blessing day and only 3 days after my birthday...so we celebrated lots and ate lots of yummy food.
First up, was Oliver's blessing. He looked adorable, Scott gave him a beautiful blessing and Kayley had prepared a yummy (and pretty) brunch at their house after.

The evening we were back together again for the birthday girls :-)! My mom had it looking festive and fabulous as usual.

I let Hope pick the menu, because let's face it, I love pretty much any and all food. We had Thelma's chicken (a casserole I used to make for my family when I was in high school), roasted asparagus (Preston and I can't get enough!), strawberry spinach salad and rolls. Yum!

the always awkward birthday song...it has to be done for tradition's sake and documented for memory's sake though.

Happy Birthday! As always, I am amazed at your family's party planning/throwing ability. Could I please hire one of you to cook and decorate for Audrey's birthday party?! What a great day for all of you!
