Happy Birthday Mommy!

We celebrated my 37th birthday last week and I had a lovely day.  The kids made me beautiful cards and Casey made one of my favorite meals, crab cakes, and a scrumptious carrot cake.  One of Marcella's gifts was a game she made using cap erasers and buttons.  She did such a great job with it and we had a lot of fun playing it.  Basically, we each chose a color of eraser cap to be and had to roll the dice to move our man to the finish.  If we rolled a 5, a button got placed on the board.  If all the buttons got placed on the board before our men got to finish, the buttons won.  When we rolled a 6, we got to put a button back and got an extra turn.  Two longer versions of the game were to use all the eraser caps or to keep score with the dice rolls. 

On Friday we celebrated the Feast of Our Lady of the Rosary by making a decade of the Rosary with cupcakes and coloring pictures of Our Lady while praying one decade.  The beautiful tissue paper covered cross and doves was made by Marcella and Theresa early on Thursday morning.  We came down for breakfast and they had it done!  It was a sweet way for us to end our weekend!
