Family Fridays: My Birthday

This past Friday was my 26th birthday, and it was a lovely day. My husband and boys spoiled me.
Pastries from local Western bakery, yummy start to my birthday.
Nate and Aaron baking an amazing dark chocolate cake for me.
Even Andrew got to help.
Relaxing with Andrew and new baby.
A sweet friend of mine made me a chocolate, chocolate cake.
The boys were very excited about an extra surprise cake.
Nate brought back McDonald's double cheeseburgers.
Double cheeseburgers taste amazing on this side of the world.
My sweet honey got me beautiful flowers.
Aaron went with daddy to get the flowers and brought me this rose.
He bought it with his very own cuteness!
He also managed to get me a birthday balloon
from the pharmacy with his cuteness.
Andrew found a balloon in the house to give me too,
little sweetheart.
Aaron wanted to play party games.
Cards and gifts from Nate and the Boys. My sweet honey also wrote
me a computer program so we can organize our family videos better.
Amazing dark chocolate cake, with chocolate ganache,
caramel sauce, and chocolate chips on top.
Yea, for cake number two!
We continued celebrating the next day by going
to Chicago Coffee for pizza. The boys enjoyed coloring
with our friends there.


  1. Happy belated birthday! The cakes look amazing and nodding my head in agreement on your comment about how good double cheeseburgers taste over here! I usually get one when I get a chance to go to Beijing, especially since they now have a McD's at the train station. Am putting cream on my list of things to buy when I go up there next time so I can try out more of your recipes.

  2. Thanks.

    We don't get these things all the time either, but we do enjoy special food on special days.

  3. Happy Birthday Anna! Looks like it was a great day!

  4. Happy Birthday!!! It looks like a lot of fun, and that chocolate cake looks A-MAZING! High five to Nate and the boys.
