Troy's birthday

September 23 was Troy's 29th birthday, and we enjoyed a family picnic together. I grabbed some pizza, fresh veggies and chips for the "festivities" and headed to Lake Robinson. Isn't it beautiful?! I brought some bread so the boys could feed the fish, and they finished the evening by tossing as many rocks as time would allow. When we arrived home, the boys and I presented Troy with a chocolate cake topped with homemade icing. (You can laugh if you wish; I am a musician not a cake decorator! :-) This is better looking than the first time I tried to decorate a cake. Let us just say that on that cake, I had to turn the musical notes into bicycles! Nathan Dahler was at our house and when I showed him the cake, we both doubled over with laughter!!! It is good to be able to laugh at yourself!) Back to this cake, it tastes delicious, and that is what counts. (Yes, there are only six candles because I did not want to put twenty-nine on the cake.) Hope you had a nice day, Honey!

Sob! Sob! Sniff! Sniff! Wail! You are so cruel, Mr. Travis Leib. Sob! Gulp! I need more tissues. . . I am scarred for life! My self esteem is no longer in existence. I hope I can find a good therapist.

I would sure like to help you, but that cake tells of deep seated problems and long standing issues. So sorry, (for you your husband that is)
