I love birthday cake!

Well today is Brian's birthday, so I left work early to come home and cook a nice meal and to bake a birthday cake. I had originally planned on making a cheesecake but when I got home yesterday I realized that I didn't have all the ingredients. I didn't want to go to the store because there was another big storm here yesterday and the roads were messy. So today I picked up the ingredients to make a chocolate cake with cream cheese icing instead and I plan on making the cheesecake this weekend. Oh how I love to bake! The chocolate cake came out great and we just had some for supper. I had two pieces but birthday calories don't count. I plan on making a turtle cheesecake this weekend - our favorite.

Today one of my co workers signed the provincial application to adopt a child from the Philippines. I was pretty excited about this as I don't yet know any other families here in NL who have adopted from the Philippines. They know it will take around a year to just get their homestudy done and approved provincally before they can send it off to ICAB - this is the best case scenario. Some families end up waiting longer but I really hope that things go smoothly for her. I look forward to the day when our children can play together!

I leave on Sunday to fly to Gander. I'm working out there for the week which I do every three months since the therapist out there is off on maternity leave. I love the week away although working out there is even busier than working at my regular job. I'm staying at my cousins house again which will be fun. It is always nice to visit her and her husband and we're hoping to fit some snowshoeing in as well.

Mmmmmm... cake. I totally agree that birthday calories don't count :) Have fun in Gander. We have a store in the town in work in called Gander Mountain. I wonder if it's named after that Gander?
