Birthday Celebrations!

Hey everybody, it's party time at my pad!  My daughter turns eleven today.  I can't believe how fast the time has flown!  Anyway, I'm getting ready for the big chocolate-themed birthday party, so I don't have a lot of time to write.

But I wanted to also let you know that my daughter is not the only one celebrating a birthday, today.  Author, Christine Rains, is celebrating, too, and she's giving away free copies of her book.  Be sure to stop by her blog and wish her Happy Birthday! 


So, Christine, this is for you -  a pretty cool rendition of Happy Birthday, by a talented violinist, Rachel Barton Pine.  Have a fabulous day!  (And if you want to stop by for the party, come on over - you're only a couple  of hours down the road from me!)



Now I'm going to go bake cake.  Chocolate of course!

    1. Rachel Barton Pine is an excellent violinist! I like listening to her play.

      Would you believe I did not have one piece of chocolate or chocolate cake at the party? How did that happen? LOL!

  10. Thank you so much! And happy birthday to your daughter. My son picked out a chocolate cake for me today that had smiley faces on it. Good cake, but the icing the stores make these days is real sweet! Hope everyone enjoys the chocolate party.
