Birthday Madness, part one

Okay--I've only had coffee so far today, and it's Wednesday, so here goes the over-caffeinated, running-out-of-time recap of the birthdays so far:

Because in our house, it's not officially your birthday until we have painted a banner in your honor. And when you turn 40, you get the really big banner.
More on these later...
On Monday, Caitlin and I went thrifting in search of some buttons to make "Baby Carrie's Button String" at her party on Saturday. We struck out on buttons, but I did score some hobnail milk glass items at Goodwill for $2.06. Take that, eBay!
And bedtime is as good a time as any to have chocolate cake, right?
This is the aftermath of a delicious birthday dinner. We had Spiced Pork Tenderloin with Maple-Chipotle Sauce, mashed potatoes and roasted green beans. So yummy (so yummy, there's a party in my tummy...oops--too much Nick Jr.). Anyway, it was awesome. Check out Cooking Light's March issue for the pork recipe.

And that's how you turn 40 in this house! On to the next birthday...when might that be?
