Yesterday we celebrated a birthday in our home!
Here are Seven Quick Takes from the day:

Hubby woke up to Chiquita giving him the birthday card she had illustrated for him. We weren't sure what to think of the plane flying in the pitch black sky "over the
mountains hills" . . .
The other children stuck with more traditional birthday cards...
...and Rascal even made a couple fighter planes out of modeling wax.
In the meantime, I worked on baking the cake. I made the Mom's Layer Cake (recipe from The Cake Mix Doctor) with a Chocolate Mousse Filling and Chocolate Ganache on top. Yum!
Patiently waiting for Daddy to arrive home from work...

My Dad and Brother helped me get an amazing deal on a great set of tools to give Hubby as a gift. And, of course, the children all loved giving their Daddy the cards they had made for him.

Snuggles had so much fun playing with the box from Daddy's birthday gift!

I wish this picture wouldn't have turned out blurry, I love it!
(I was using a slower shutter speed without the flash...)
After Daddy blew out the candles, Snuggles quickly jumped up to help him with the two he missed.
