The other day I asked what her name was. "Mahgo." Asked who named her that. "Jogianna Toftness." Thanks for the cred, pal.
This past weekend we had a little party for Marg. I was going to do a cute little cow theme (her favorite beast of burden), but used all my mental and physical energies to tear apart some recipes that were sitting dormant on my Pinterest board instead. The menu: Fried apples (success), bruchetta (not from Pinterest, but bruchetta is always a success), mozzarella sticks (total flop- someone put hoaky directions in the description of the pin and I followed them. Stupid. But the real recipe looks really good. Lesson: get to the original link before diving into a pool of milk and breadcrumbs. But you all know that.), creamy mushroom tortellini soup (success for the second time). And Requisite Pumpkin Cupcakes with Cinnamon Cream Cheese Frosting. I think foregoing the cow theme for the sake of good food was a good choice. Good.

|So much help with gift opening.|
|So many thank-you hugs.|
|And stealthy help blowing out candles...|
|She must not have noticed Oliver's involvement, as she is very pleased with herself. Me help me.|
|The frosting on the cupcakes was a butter-creamcheese-sugar trifecta of all that is good.|
