Happy Birthday

Yesterday was Marci's Birthday
"what shall I wish for....."

I can't believe she'll be my age next year!
The extended fam was in Utah for BYU graduation so we're celebrating
Sunday. A joint birthday dinner for Marci and Hope!
Unanimous dinner request from both is Chicken Enchiladas.

We loved the cake that Melissa made for Marci's baby shower for Preston. It was deelish!
Hope wanted a birthday cake made by "The Cake Lady" (I won't take it too personally, I totally agree).

Back to Marci....she has so many qualities that I admire. Is it possible, I acutally look up to her!
She is beautiful, athleltic & smart. She has determination amd has accomplished so much in her 28 years already. Last year, her friend did the "LIST".
