Party Girl

It was a low-key shindig. Just the four of us.

But we made sure to include the most important party elements.

A new birthday dress was purchased.

Check it out folks. Do you see garish pink and purple with sequins? No! They are nowhere to be seen!

The Girl chose this dress all by herself. Really! I promise. I didn't coax her one bit.

I *adore* it. I think it was her little gift to me.

Packages were wrapped in fancy paper and tied with curly ribbon.

The desire to open the unknown was at a fever pitch.

Cake was a must.

With plenty of sprinkles.

I'm very impressed with this cake. It was flashy, but not gaudy.

If you recall
last year's cake, that was not the case.


It's not a birthday cake without candles.

I wonder what she wished for...

Mmmm. Tasty.

Once the cake was cut it was time for the good part.

Time to open those presents!

What's in this one?



A new Barbie. In a shiny outfit, no less.

Can't go wrong there.

It all made for a very happy day. For both of us.

Thank you for all of the very sweet birthday wishes...

I believe I have the best peeps in the world.

The Girl is in total agreement.
