remember how my parentals have been married for like three decades?
[you almost thought this post was about my 30th bday, didn't you? wrong. i'd like to start with 25, thank you.]
well the whole familia was fiiiiinally in town and we fiiiiinally got around to celebrating
[2 months late is better than never, right? right.]
you see, my papa served his church mission in italy
[many moons ago in the 70s, in a brown suit and stuff]
and he and momsie always talked about going there for their 30th
i think us ninos were a bit expensive to raise
and the whole italy thing has unfortunately not ended up happening
we brought italy to them!
pros of the night:
much delicious pasta, made by the sistren of the family
a sister who can decorate cakes like nobody's bizness
games and stuff
con of the night:
i think i was allergic to my pasta [pictured below in the skillet]
oh, it was beautiful
and it was delicious
a labor of love, i tell you!
but ... it made me itch all night
[has balsamic ever made anyone else itchy?? sigh.]
here it is in pictures!
don't mind the fact that there is generally a lack of people in the photos....i guess we're not the posing, picturey type of family
that last one is a love note my momsie drew for my papa during game time. gee they're cute!
[and it's a ewe...not a sheep. in case you missed that.]
