Happy Birthday

The third and final child, also referred to as #3, celebrated her first birthday yesterday. I suppose that's not accurate. The celebration is actually taking place today. I've spent a small fortune on this party. I hope all of the anticipated guests show up. I went through the painstaking process of making cocktail sausages--we all know how hard it is to throw sausages and BBQ sauce in the crockpot. I am attempting to make a yummy dip but I can't find the freakin recipe. It's been a few years (okay, about 5) since I made it. I know it involves cream cheese, salsa, green onions, and black olives. Imitation crab meat is a key ingredient too. The problem is that I am not sure if the crab "legs" go in the dip or if you dip the crab in the mixture. The original recipe came off of a package of Louis Kemp crab legs. Common sense says go to the website and find the recipe. I guess it's a little too outdated because it's not there anymore. Oh well. I'll figure it out. At least the veggie platter will please the guests! I have to leave in a bit to get the cake. Ugggggg......I REALLY hope everyone shows up because I got a HUGE cake. Will post pics later!

Thanks Laura. The party was great. I will send out pics soon. It's a real pain to put the pics on the computer because I have to rename all of them and size them. Clint copied over some pics of when Mackenzie was first born, so I make sure I rename them. But naming 80 pics isn't in the schedule right now.
