Happy Birthday, Mom!

We had a birthday party for my Mom on Sunday night. My sis and bro took her out to dinner at Old Hickory, but knowing that I have a bunch of picky eaters, we skipped that part, and just had them come over after for cake. Pics to follow. My first night back at work was a bad one. Not for me, I didn't have any patients. But for Tess. Doesn't she look like she's thinking, "how could you leave me alone?" She has never slept without me next to her, so I knew that would be a transition. But, on top of that, she still has this yucky cold with horrible congestion. And she likes to comfort nurse and won't take a pacifier. So, she didn't sleep much, which made Daddy cranky. She slept with me most of the day today.

I am on call tonight, so she should be okay. I'm just hoping this cold will be better by tomorrow night when I have to go back to work. It's been about 3 or 4 days now.
The pics below are all from our birthday "party".

Let me preface this by saying, my 11 yr old has a typical boy's sense of humor. In case you can't tell, that's a guy lighting a fart to light the candles. I thought the baker holding his nose was a nice touch.
And of course, he has to include his Guitar Hero addiction.

It took 3 people to light all 60, yes, 60 candles.
Check out the flames on that cake!
Good thing there is no smoke detector in the dining room. She still has enough hot air in her to blow them all out in one shot.
And here is the cake after the "I want a corner", "I want a flower", "I want the middle", "I want an edge". Good grief. The pickiness extended to the adults in this instance.
