The Anything Candle

Mom's birthday was a HIT!

It was really a top secret birthday celebration in her honor.

This was my only picture of her being surprised. She is hiding behind her new manicure.
We invited all her BFFs and had Mother's favorite Chinese place cater our meal.

We did the usual food thing, then the usual birthday word search, then the unusual row of candles. We had four pies and a cake. Each of them were covered in candles.

We like everything to be a bit of a challenge. Mom performed wonderfully.

Judy was a champ and made lemon pie. It was Mom's one birthday wish, and I'm glad Judy was able to grant that wish.

It was also the year of the anything candle. You see, Mother was gifted a candle. We all took a smell to determine what it was. Elle was the first to give it a sniff, and she said, "It smells like anything."

I was a bit skeptical so I demanded I be the next to give the candle a smell.

And I thought.

And I thought.

And I thought.

And I realized that it really could be anything. It was sweet, it was spicy, it was fresh, it was musky. It could be ANYTHING!

It turns out it was caramel apple.

Happy Birthday, Mom!

I now know what I want to do for the rest of my birthdays. Eat Chinese!

Also, brilliant move with the fortune cookie candle supports.

Happy birthday, Myr's mom! She is almost exactly 5 years older than my mom! Too bad they can't have a combined party, because you know that would freaking rock.
