Some Birthday Love

Last Saturday was a big day!
Guess who had a birthday?

Yup ... Neil Diamond ... 68 years and still making it work.


And then there's this chicky ...
I won't mention her age ... but she hasn't changed a bit in all these years.




But this is the one that steals my heart ...
My first born.  She let me practice being a mom.  She was such a good baby.  She never complained or judged when I didn't have a clue how to do the new mom thing.  
She's the kid I could take with me anywhere and I didn't have to worry that she would be disruptive or troublesome.  
This is the girl that went through an appendectomy without so much as a whine, a groan or tears.
She is the most patient, kind, loving person I know.
She's a wonderful example for her younger brother and sister.
Now she's well into her teenage years and I'm proud to say we get along great.  
She is growing into a beautiful woman.


So we had a party.
My assistant and I baked a cake.
Chocolate cake with chocolate frosting.
As requested.
Happy Birthday sweet daughter!

What a beautiful cake! I make cakes for b'days too, but they never look that nice. LOL I can't believe Neil Diamond is that old! Yikes. I should believe it...I guess that's what getting older does to you...sort of bridges the gap!

I remember when Selena was born. Sean called me in that little walk-up apartment I was living in. (Goodness, I loved that apartment). I remember your baby shower at your folks' house. I couldn't believe my best friend was pregnant. Wow, that was 15 years ago. You do have a daughter to be proud of. She's an awesome girl!
