I’m not usually one of those people that goes on and on about their own birthday.  Although apparently this year I’m kind of becoming one.  ¡Ah… pues nimodo!  In actuality, I just had such a great time yesterday celebrating mi cumpleaños that I wanted to share a couple of pictures with you all here too.  Thanks to all of you who wished me a Happy Birthday yesterday!

Originally we were going to go to the beach, but since it didn't end up working out that way we figured why not bring a little of the beach to us. Hey, the kids bought into it anyway! Either that, or they were just so hot they wanted to cool off. It was 100 degrees yesterday here in Texas!

I'm extra proud of my birthday cake! My younger brother is becoming quite the baker and this was his masterpiece for me yesterday. He even put marmalade in the middle like mamá used to do when we were kids. ¡Ya le vamos a llamar el pastelero, jajaja!

The kids. The kids. The kids. Oh how they make me happy!

My two baby sisters, of course, couldn't let me get away without getting a little cake on my face. No matter how hard I resisted they were pushing down on my big old head. In the end I just gave in. Thank goodness the frosting wasn't messy enough to get all over my face - another reason to love that cake, ha! And hey, my sisters, their actually pretty strong!
