I don't feel like this today.

They started arriving yesterday. This one, and then more in my email. Photographs and clip art and e-cards and pictures.

Then this one, and this one (from the instigator).

I can't possibly show you all of them. Every time I come back to the computer there are more. But here's a representative sampling.

There's also a recipe or two in my mailbox, and promises of RL cake later. Thank you, thank you!

I'm actually spending much of the day home with a sick kid (Nick woke up at 4:30 going "ow, ow" about his throat), but dropping by for more cake every now and then will lighten that up.

I should have whined about my birthday years ago!

Hurray for cake!!
I'm glad you're enjoying your virtual birthday party, despite Nick's sore throat. Maybe for your 50th we'll all gather outside our computers!

Happy Birthday, Libby!
I hope Nick has the dreaded "It's my Mom's birthday and I want her all to myself today" sickness... ¡Felicitaciones!

Happy birthday! I was waiting for you to get to mine! Somebody needs to put together a full list, so we can see them all.

Susan said...

Wow, I love that last cake pillow thing. How cool is that!

Happy Birthday, Libby! I'm coming a little late to the party, but you can go check your cake at my blog now, OK? :)
PS I took a break from dissertation writing to bake it... nothing like a good excuse for procrastinating.

cake cake cake -- one of the happiest words in the language. One of my very favorite movies when I was little was Shirley Temple's "The Little Princess." And I can still hear her cute little voice at her birthday party saying "Time to cut the cake!"

Happy Birthday!!
