Consequently, her party this year was small and quiet - just the family at home. We did take the girls to Build-a-Bear earlier in the day as part of their Christmas gift, and each of them picked out a sweet animal to bring home. I'm sad that L doesn't get that sleepover that she has been wanting for years, but I'm a bit relieved that I don't have to throw together another party in the next couple of weeks. Is that terrible of me?
|The brown puppy, "Mommy Puppy", was her Build-a-|
Bear friend from age 2. The polar bear, "Julia", just
joined the family this year!
L asked for "the kind of cake Daddy gets for his Birthday" this year...a 5 Flavor Pound Cake. This was also pretty simple...no crazy design or fancy frosting, just an almond glaze (although I did go all out and sprinkle the top with gold sugar!)
Happy 8th Birthday, my lovely girl! Let's aim for that BIG party next year!
