Fire 'em Up!

Photos by Bob Stender of Tibidabo Photography

So, we've had two rather successful birthdays this month.  And I really enjoy birthdays.

For David's birthday we had coffee, of course; an assortment of desserts; and some home-made chai.

Every time we go to Starbucks, Elliott asks me about their rice crispy treats and I tell him, "We can make those at home."  So this last time we went to Starbucks, we were standing in line when all of sudden Elliott cries out, "Oh!  We forgot to make those!"  So I promised him we would make them for Daddy's birthday and that is just what we did.  We also had the trusty toasted oat cookies, which I highly recommend, as well as this chocolate torte.

The party was a hit and I can't tell you what a big, huge blessing these photos are--courtesy of Bob Stender (a fellow birthday lover) who dropped by with his wife, Becky, with birthday wishes for David.  Truly rare are any photos that happen to include both David and me in the same shot since he is usually behind the camera.  So these pictures are truly a treasure.  Thank you, Bob!

I concur about your hair being adorable Corynne!

I'll let you know, I am a fan of Starbucks Crispy Bars... made by the Cheesecake Factory people... drizzle it with some caramel and placed in the warming ovens... I'd spend a $1.25 any day!

Is Elliott going to be a chef one day? :)
