In honor of the anniversary of the birth of Swamette

Word of the Day:
apotheosis \uh-pah-thee-OH-sis; ap-uh-THEE-uh-sis\, noun;
plural apotheoses \-seez\:
1. Elevation to divine rank or stature; deification.
2. An exalted or glorified example; a model of excellence or perfection of a kind.

Today is my mother-in-law's birthday. You know her as Swamette.
I know her as the single best mother-in-law I could ever ask for. To use the Word of the Day:
"Rita is worthy of apotheosis in song of her mother-in-law skills."


Swamette's birthday cake

Kevin and Rachel brought this beautiful cake for dessert.

And it had a wee sugar bird on it!

I couldn't stop taking pictures of the cake. The icing was delicious.
Yurt Wall of Fame
The Wall of Fame at the yurt...Jim and Rita have photos up of everyone who is important to them. I think I am in there somewhere...

Butterscotch (Jim calls him Quagmire), quite possibly the coolest cat in the world.

He even watches TV!
