It's a girl!!!

This weekend is especially festive for our family as not only do we have the "holiday of love", we get to celebrate a birthday. The Mom's birthday was celebrated on Friday. We had special soup, of course, the parents came to visit, we went to the closest large town for a dinner out.

We enjoyed as chocolate cream cheese cake and gifts were opened.
It is sometimes said "the box is more fun than the toy that came in it". That may have been the case with some wrapping paper from one of the gifts. Spark wore the paper as a hat for a portion of the birthday celebration. It was a unique look, sort of festive chef meets Egyptian priest meets Kwanza headgear.

One of our family traditions is that after the birthday honoree blows out the candles they are re-lit and the kids get to blow them out again. Notice how short the candles are.

This was our second birthday for the year, next up is the Dad in May
