We wanted everyone to be part of her birthday celebration, so we had birthday cake with everyone who came to the blessing.
She wanted a white cake with red and blue fireworks on top of a white background.
Our honored guests could select Dryer's "red, white and no more blues," Safeway Select rocky road ice cream or - much to Bill''s chagrin - FDD (frozen dairy desert) to go with the vanilla cake and vanilla frosting.
. . . and There's More!
On her actual birthday, we had a small family dinner. Ellie chose tater tot casserole, green beans and jello for dinner. Can she have a birthday without a cake? Of course not.
This time she asked for yellow cake with vanilla frosting (and the same fireworks decorating scheme).
. . . But Wait! There's More!
Her party didn't take place until a few days after her birthday.
She invited the five friends who were in town for a slip 'n slide extravaganza.
watermelon, grapes and carrots.
birthdays must include cake. This time, she decorated chocolate cup cakes with M&Ms and marshmallows.
After all of the celebrations, I needed a rest . . .
Happy Birthday Elbow!
