It’s Chris’s birthday! On Saturday we had our first birthday celebration with the family in New Jersey. We had a lovely dinner and then his mom’s famous carrot cake with lots of candles. After dinner we watched the Clemson vs University of South Carolina game. We had hopes of winning and getting to a BCS bowl, but sadly that didn’t happen. Sigh.
Today we had another little celebration at home. Chris decided that he wanted to do something low-key after our busy holiday weekend, so we had homemade pizza, and I made him a really yummy kahlua cake. We also ordered up his birthday present… everyone in the family chipped in this year to get him a sweet briefcase!
