Today I woke up ready to start the day. I drove down to my mom's house in the morning only to find out that the train was almost an hour late. Oh joy and rapture! Oh well, at least it's Tuesday!
Let me take you back to my Saturday night. The husband and I invited my immediate family over to our house for dinner. The husband did a fantastic job of setting up the house and making dinner. While my mom and I were out doing some Christmas shopping, he was home getting things ready.
We are lucky to have two tables at our disposal. Whenever we have family over, we have to break out both of them to make sure we have enough room for everyone!
By the time my mom and I came home to my house, the husband had already made three trays of baked ziti.
It tasted as good as it looks!
I cut up the bread.
I love having bread at dinner. It's so, so good!
After cutting the bread, it was time for my mom and I to take a picture in front of our Christmas tree.
Even though she probably doesn't want to be on the blog, I think this is a great picture of her, and I'm so proud that she's my mom :)
After some picture taking, my mom went off to the kitchen to decorate the cake. She wanted to make my birthday cake, which I thought was super sweet. She made the diet coke cake recipe and topped it with fat free cool whip and strawberries. It tasted amazing!

The finished product!
He kept joking that he was going to burn his hand with all of the candles. I kept reminding him that he is the older one!
I can't even believe that I am going to post this picture, but I think it's hilarious. My brothers were making some sort of comment about me blowing out all of the candles on the cake in one breath. Clearly, I thought I was strong enough to do so.
Yeah...this is me....
Last, but certainly not least, we decided it was picture taking time with my awesome nephew.
What is something that you love?
It was such a treat to have my family over to my house on Saturday. I love when we all get together and spend quality time together.
