come saturday morning

i was going to call this post "saturation saturday" but it looks as if a watery sun is trying very hard to poke its way through the lingering mist. the run-off was still streaming down the center of the driveway when i walked the puppies this morning, the waterfall is foaming as furiously as niagra.

i slept well last night, even though i woke up a couple times because of the lightning and thunder. every time i did, the sound of the steady rain soon soothed me back into the same kind of sleep sam seems to be enjoying:

note her head on the pillow... isn't she cute? :)

here's some photos from the party last night:

this is baby jake and his mommy ... it's hard to believe he's almost two and she's nearly 29...

this is baby jake and his daddy... can't deny this one, could he? ;)

here is Beloved lighting the cake:

this is the Birthday Girl and libby:

and here's baby jake, eating his cake!

and furthermore, the war will end. eventually. blessed be.

Such beautiful pictures! He is a handsome little guy! I found your blog when I was on Sited and Blogged; I am going to try out your recipe for the mocha midnight cake that she had on her blog. It sounds really yummy! :)
