An Old Fashioned Birthday

My youngest daughter, SpoiledChild 2, turned 12 a few weeks ago.

This was the first year I did not do the whole "let's see who can have the biggest birthday party" thing. A birthday party is a birthday party. And I finally realized, after all of those fancy parties, I was missing out on the most important thing: the birthDAY. After all the planning, organizing, setting up, etc., I was too exhausted to enjoy it.

My daughter called this an "Old Fashioned Birthday Party". Sometimes it's nice to just be simple. We had the most wonderful time together baking and decorating her cake. So what if it wasn't the bakery cake from years gone by. It tasted delicious. It was the one she wanted, Funfetti with vanilla icing and sprinkles. (okay, so I made the icing) The day was just so stress free and relaxed. Afterwards, we ordered pizza, at her request. And all was good.

She wanted the "good old fashioned homemade by mom" birthday cake!!
*With sqiggly candles!*


Make a Wish!!!

Oh Yeah! She got her wish......

Now my beautiful, manicured, backyard that I worked so lovingly on this summer is a dirt track. But I look at it as a sign of happy times. It can be re-manicured next spring.

Life is too short to worry about grass.
