Celebrating a special woman


We had family over Sunday morning after church to celebrate my mother-in-law’s birthday. It was a great time and it was really fun to get everyone together.

My daughter made the cupcakes:

And I baked banana bread,

I’ll have to share the recipe with you. The bread is made with Spelt flower and less sugar; a healthier option, but it still tastes really good.

and coffee cake.

A not-so-healthy option, but still good!

My daughter and I found some cupcake papers at Michael’s craft store that were black and white so we decided to do a black and white theme (with a little bit of green):

My mother-in-law looked beautiful, and she and I, and my brother-in-law’s girlfriend, all matched in our animal print shirts (not planned):

Bailey matched too, lol.

It was a fun morning and a special time celebrating a special woman.

We love you, Gamma!

(By the way, as I write this, TODAY is her actual birthday. It would mean so much if you could leave her a comment here and wish her a very HAPPY BIRTHDAY! Thanks! :)
