A 50th Birthday Party!!

Proverbs 3: 5-6  Trust in the Lord with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding.
In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths.

This past weekend we celebrated my husband's 50th birthday. I made a small party for him, inviting some family to celebrate with us. So we had some good food including this birthday cake I made for him and we played a couple of fun games together.

Here is the picture of the cake:

The games were question and answer type games and I had prizes for the top three winners of both games. It turned out to be a lot of fun.
The first game was " Random Questions about 1963 - the year he was born" and the second game was "How well do you know Cliff?"

  1. What a lovely birthday cake!

    Happy and blessed new year!

    1. Thanks very much for your kind words! I will pass on your greetings to my husband! I made the cake gluten free as my hubby has celiac and we all enjoyed it together. It was a chocolate cake layered with cherry pie filling and whipped topping. Still it was a bit drier than I had hoped. I suppose I should have used a cake mix instead of making it from scratch.
