December 5th is when the Dutch celebrate a holiday called Sinterclause. Since Gavin spent two years in the Neatherlands on his mission, we started celebrating it when we were dating and have continued the tradition since.
What you do is put your shoe out the night before and if you have been a good little girl or boy, Sinterclause will leave you candy in your shoe. If you have been naughty, his helper "Black Pete" will take you away to Spain where you will become a black slave.
Luckily, we were all good this year and are still white and free. Whew, I was scared.
December 5th also happens to be my birthday! This year it was my 21st and the best one yet. Not only do I have a wonderful husband to celebrate it with, but the cutest baby too.
Yes, this may be the ugliest cake you have ever layed eyes on, but looks can be decieving. It was very delicious. Thank you Gavin : )
My sweet baby G.
Thank you Gavin for the best birthday yet. I love you!
