I’m kinda like my dad in that I don’t want a huge fuss for my birthday. I’d rather have you appreciate me 365 days a year than make a huge effort all on one day. When I woke up, Elli told me I needed to put on the purple birthday slippers my friend Amelia made for me. Since it’s MI and cold, I let her pick out a pair of socks to match the slippers. (Note to self: get Elli tested for color-blindness…)
Dan and the girls redeemed a coupon a local grocery store had sent me for a free 7″ cake on my birthday. I was thrilled! First of all, I ❤ free and secondly Dan (or I) didn’t have to be bothered with making a cake for me.
I offered to let the kids decorate it “for me” using some leftover Halloween cookie icing. They were so excited! They did a lot of finger-licking whilst decorating. Here’s my finished “custom” cake.
