Another birthday and a holiday break

Today is Ruthie's fifth birthday. Her pink cake is in the oven, and will soon be covered with pink frosting and pink sprinkles. She says she wants to put candy canes around it. I can't believe she is so big. She is such a beautiful thing, but oh, so silly!



The big kids have an early release from school today, so we'll have Ruthie's party, then enjoy each other's company for a couple of weeks during our Christmas break.

So...

On that note, I think I will say Merry Christmas to you all, and maybe even Happy New Year. I have lots of memories to make, and I don't want to miss one of them!

Love,
Katherine

Happy Birthday Ruthie! Enjoy your special day!
Katherine, wow 2 birthdays right before Christmas. I only have one, my son will be 19 yrs old on the 22nd this coming Monday. I know what a challenge it is to separate the two celebrations so they don't get cheated!! But 2, wow, kudos to you.

Enjoy your family and Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!

About the pink cake thing; we have four girls and after the last birthday party my husband asked, "What kind of cake are you having for your birthday?" My birthday was two months away. "Why?" I asked. "Can it please be not pink?"

Enjoy the holidays!
