Happy Rabbit Rabbit Day, Canada Day, & Almost Independence Day!

Yes- I hope you all remembered to say, "rabbit, rabbit"...first thing today. We can all use a little more luck I say.

And it is Canada Day today!!!!! I know you are all so excited. Yep- I love my country of birth. Plus...I also get to celebrate the United States' birthday this long weekend too (which I also love...the country and the long weekend)! Pretty nifty! Hurrah to both countries!

(Canada Day info: On July 1, 1867, Canada became a self-governing dominion of Great Britain and a federation of four provinces: Nova Scotia; New Brunswick; Ontario; and Quebec. The anniversary of this date was called Dominion Day until 1982. Since 1983, July 1 has been officially known as Canada Day.)

This cake was posted on my blog before. Our friend Lisa made it last year for a Canadian get together. Pretty spiffy... though when I posted this last year, a friend (from Canada) thought it looked like there was bacon on the cake instead of strawberries. Ewwww!

Anyway, happy celebrating this weekend to both countries...and bonus-it is Friday today! Yessssssss!

And my handsome nephew Ander gets baptized tomorrow! And a dear little friend named John.
