We had such a fun evening! S' s parents threw the children a family birthday party. One of S' s cousins brought her 3-year-old daughter A along so T and F had a playmate. T loves his cousin A. Thank you C for coming. It meant a lot.
Grandpa and Nana ordered a strawberry cake. So yummy. T really wanted strawberry. Nana made some cupcakes too. Butter yellow. Yum!
Preparing for the party was time consuming but surprisingly relaxing. We had a ball. I found drawing, coloring, and cutting out paper fish with T rather therapeutic.
Since F was too young to lick her candle T handed it to cousin A. Oh did they enjoy themselves. There's something almost magical about candle-licking isn't there?
F hit the musical jackpot this birthday. She will be bringing home a small collection of handheld musical instruments. I'm sure many new memories will be formed with them in the days ahead.
