Today is Tracy's birthday, and we had lots of fun celebrating tonight. I thought I'd share Tracy's birthday card first since I'm linking it to the new (and timely) Addicted to CAS challenge: Lucky!
It's another inlaid die with a shamrock sticker I found at Michael's.
Both the die cut and the sentiment underneath are from Simon Says, "Happy." Papertrey's New Leaf card stock is the perfect color for St. Patrick's Day, and I'm always drawn to a bright green and black combination.
When I went to set the table I was surprised to find I had no green placemats. The last couple of years we haven't been home for Tracy's birthday, but I found great bright green ones on sale at Bed, Bath, and Beyond.
I found some lucky gold coins at Michaels. Skylar gathered them all up after dinner and put them in the toy box!
Matt, Betsy, and Skylar came for dinner. After we ate, we did Face Time with Sarah, Adam, and Caleb on the iPad. Technology is just the best!
Skylar and Caleb started showing one another their cars. It went on for quite some time.
Afterwards we had dessert. Tracy had banana cream pie (his favorite) but I also bought some cupcakes for the rest of us so we'd have something to put birthday candles on. I was holding the cupcakes for the blowing out of candles so there are no photos of the event.
And opened up gifts.
Initially Skylar wanted no photos on the way out.
But she relented, and Grandma was grateful!
