Something to be thankful for!

Today is Kevin's birthday. It's been a fun day for us. We started with chocolate croissants from Trader Joe's. These are the ones that got us started making our own after we tried them last Thanksgiving. Here's a few shots of what Trader Joe's look like:

Here's what they look like out of the package. You really need to read the the directions before going to bed, because it says to let rise over night.

This was the next morning; they rise an incredible amount.

Once cooked to a nice brown, they're light, flaky and good.

My yard sale find today. A guitar cake pan. For a dollar, I couldn't pass it up, especially for hubby on his birthday.

A home made yellow cake. Boy oh boy, does it smell good. Can't wait to try it!!!

Kevin ended up frosting the cake. I was beat this afternoon and napped for a bit.

Another thing to be thankful for today, we got the van back from the auto body shop today. Yeah!! It's more comfortable to ride in my van with having a few stitches.
