August Baby Boom

Here are a couple of pics from our birthday shin-dig last Saturday. Along with Steve and me, there were two other girls in our ward who had birthdays in August. (Ok, three, but that one thought it would be more fun hanging out with Mickey Mouse than us. Pah-leeze.)

A few people asked me if I made myself a birthday cake and what kind. Well, for the party I wasn't in charge of the cake, but I made the ice cream. Because I made a gallon of custard-based ice cream, I ended up with 18 egg whites sitting in my fridge. The only thing to do with that many egg whites is make Angel Food Cake. So I did. Steve wanted this cheesecake for his birthday, but since we've had a lot of sweets this past week, I'll do it this weekend instead.

This photo actually came from a video clip -- another sweet feature I discovered in Picasa!

She's so dang cute. I didn't know you could do that in Picasa. That'll be a fun one to use. Thanks!

Ivy's eyes have such a great shape! She's going to be a knock out like her sister.

Your ice cream sounds amazing. Glad you all had a fun time.
