|Another day, another delicious homemade cake.|
|My brother and his wife took first place for some tasty pepperoni rolls.|
|My mom got second place for the RIBS she brought.|
|My sister got third place for a cute variation on pigs in a blanket. She used hot dogs, crescent rolls, and pretzels to make ants, snails, and butterflies.|
|S loves ribs.|
|First thing in the morning. Opening gifts from mom and dad, birthday ring front and center, of course.|
|We made these ribbons for the winners at S's birthday potluck. They're pretty awesome, if you don't mind me saying so.|
On Sunday, Si's actual birthday, we had family over to celebrate his birthday. You know how we do the competitive potlucks with our friends once in a while? We decided to put a twist on it and let S be the sole judge. So everyone competed to bring his favorite foods. He had a blast deciding which dishes were his favorite, and passing out ribbons and prizes. Two fun days, one super sweet eight year old kid.
