My Birthday, Bonfires and Books

2 weekends ago we celebrated my birthday with my side of the family. We had a bonfire, roasted marshmallows made dough boys and ate chili. We started the weekend off by attending the Franklin City Fall Festival. This is a cute picture of the girls with Danny, they thought they were hiding from me but I had my camera ready. You should have heard their squeals (especially Danny :) )

My mom has a tradition where all of us have to take a picture with our cake and candles. 28 about sent to Pumpkin Pie on Fire.

Did you see that cute little girl trying to blow out momma's candles.....

One of my presents was a Nook. I was so excited. I still haven't quite figured everything out but I love it. I am having a hard time figuring out what book to buy. I definitely want to add the KJV Bible but would like suggestions on anything else you think I need to have!

Here I am roasting a dough boy. Thanks to the Butlers for that Tradition. It is basically just a biscuit wrapped around a stick, toast it in the fire then add butter and cinnamon and sugar. Delish!

Lilly kept trying to roast a marshmallow but the smoke was too intense for her, so my sweet aunt shielded her eyes for her.

Here is my mom and pops. They sure know how to throw a great party.


As you can see from her hoodie and sun-kissed tan, she just got back from Hawaii.

By the end of the night the smoke was definitely playing with my eyes too. This is the best of 3 pictures.

On my real birthday my work friends took me out to lunch to Scotty's Brewhouse. The have the most amazing Fried Dill Pickles. Yummy. Well the servers also brought me out a birthday ice cream with a candle. Thankfully they didn't sing or embarrass me!

This weekend we are going to hang out with Danny's side. We, Elaine, are cooking in cast iron skillets over the fire. I am making my hot apple cider and carmel apple salad. I will post those pictures later. Have a great weekend everyone. P.s. I am going to the Colts game on Sunday. Yeah Yeah I know, they are 4-0. But people I am a true Colts fan, not some band wagoner! hehe
