You will read more about this in another post . . .but Bill's choice of cake was caramel pecan. Of course, this cake was made by their momma. . . who is not young. Just wanted to make sure that you understood that.
Bill is getting ready to blow out the candles. I'm sure that we were singing our very off key rendition of Happy Birthday. We really sing it worse than any other family :-)
I love owning a camera that is fast enought to catch someone in "mid blow" - that sounds weird . . .but you know what I mean. Our old little digital camera would take so long that the candles were out, the smoke was gone, etc. In this picture, you can even see that some of the candles are still glowing!! Oops - sorry this is a post about Bill . . .not about my camera.
The next two pictures are so funny to me. Mark's momma also made homemade icecream . . .the kind where you cook the custard . . .and remember she is not young. Anyway, the Elliott family eats the largest bowls of ice cream that I have ever seen in my life. I would say that their average bowl of ice cream is probably four scoops!! Mark served Bill's ice cream and had it delivered to him with a gigantic serving spoon instead of a regular spoon. Mark is such a jokester . . . our kids call him, "Jerk Benny." So what does Bill do? He starts to eat from the giant spoon.
He doesn't just start to eat with the giant spoon. He is able to get that whole spoon into his mouth!!! We were all laughing so hard!! Way to go, Uncle Bill!!
