The BIG 40 Party

Well our external hard drive crashed yesterday while trying to upload photos off my camera, so KD has been in recovery mode. I didn't want to put up this post without photos though!

Saturday night was the big event. Kevin and Erin, with some help from a few others have been busy planning. My Mom was in the kitchen all afternoon getting things ready for a great spread! Chicken satay skewers, ginger beef, spanakopita, dips and crackers, baked brie, egg rolls, salads, fruit, platters of Christmas baking and CAKE! Yummy, yummy food, and I forgot to take a photo of the food table all decked out. And I was told to stay out! I did my best.

Erin and her friend getting ready in the kitchen..

I am so blessed and amazed, well not amazed that they couldn't do it, but just all the details they planned. This amazing cake made by my one and only girl:

It was so cute how she had the lap top propped up in the kitchen following along on the You Tube "how to make marshmallow fondant" video. Somehow it looks way less purple and much more gray in this photo.

Reindeer cake pops.. :)

Erin and Jacob made 2 great games, a "Linda Quiz" and "Name that distorted face". So hilarious!

I feel so weird celebrating ME, I don't really like the attention, but I love having a house full of faces that I love! And the house was full... of very many boys especially!

Thanks everyone for making it an awesome night!

And before heading to bed, I wore the "Barbie" slippers my BROTHER sent me!
