Another 40th Birthday Celebration

A few weeks ago (Yes, I’m a little slow posting!),  we celebrated Craig’s (Candi’s husband) 40th birthday on his actual birthday.  It was a last minute party due to the fact that Candi thought her new little bundle would have made “her” arrival  by this time.  However, she waited to arrive on her due date and her big sister, Miriam’s birthday.

A island full of yummy food:)


We celebrated with jambalaya, white beans, salad, bread, cheese dip with chips, and hummus.

For dessert, we had kid desserts and adult desserts since there were 25 kids between the four families.  The kids had king cake, cupcakes, and double doozie cookies.  Candi asked me to make the adult desserts.  We had a praline cheesecake and triple chocolate toffee torte.

Candi makes me smile every time I take her picture.  She always has a great smile ready.



Candi put on all 40 candles for Craig to blow out.

Yes even at 40, Craig was able to blow all the candles out in one breathe!!!
