the big four-oh..

it's about time! it's my sister's birthday today and we are both now in our 40's!  
i am reposting this pic because it's our most recent picture together.

and she is actually on her way back home from a trip with her family.  i thought i would surprise her and make her some carrot cake cupcakes.  i'm almost positive that this is one of her favorite cake flavors.

i placed some in my cake dome
and along with a few of her favorite goodies that i wrapped up...
i skeedaddled to her house and placed it all on her kitchen table as a surprise for her when she got home!  here's a virtual surprise party for you sis!

Awww you are such a sweet sister!! "Hauoli La Hanau" (happy birthday in Hawaiian) to your sissy! :) Aren't sisters the best.. I wish me and my sister lived closer, she's on Oahu. We try to see eachother at least twice a year.. even though it should be more. Hope you're doing well sweetie.

xx Love & Aloha
