It's a Birthday!

Steve's family makes a big deal for birthdays and I just love that. My mother-in-law has a big family dinner for each birthday person, no matter how young or old, with a special meal and dessert. She usually makes the cakes herself and tonight was no exception.

The Birthday Girl, The Boyfriend, and The Niece Whose in the Middle of Everything Fun

It was Steve's youngest sister, Susan's birthday. Last year, she moved back to Louisiana from Virginia to go back to school full-time. She turned thirty-mumblemumblemumble and her boyfriend flew in from Virginia for the party. We had boiled crawfish and crabs and a yummy orange tie-dyed cake. It was so moist and delicious and everyone loved it. (Okay, everyone but Steve, who must have been attacked by oranges at some point in his infancy.)

We got Susie a gift certificate for a spa pedicure, so I made her a special card and wrote a special pedicure poem:

Ten little pigs
Went to school
Waited tables
Dressed real cool.

For their birthday
They get to play,
Rest and relax,
If just for the day.

So Susie gets to take her pigs
Down the street to Lily's digs (*the name of the nail salon - she knew that*)
For a pedicure that's sure to please
With love from the Tuddie C****'s.

She loved the card and I am sure she's going to love her pedicure (and manicure, too).

Happy Birthday, Susie! We love you!

CUTE poem! I love getting certificates for pampering at a spa! I bet she'll enjoy it.
