Sweet Success...

Hello out there! Miss me? It's okay, you can lie. I can't really hear you.

Just wanted you to know that Esther successfully turned 4 last weekend. I even bought a $3.99 cake from Trader Joe's that slid off the damn doily...but I was too rushed too even put in on a proper plate. We ordered take-out Thai food, opened most of Esther's presents - still have some gifts unopened and all cards unopened. I haven't seen my child in 9 days...so we will get to it soon. Maybe. Expect your thank you cards in May. How's that for honesty.

Thought I would share Esther's favorite gift - a fruit bouquet. I've never seen such big and happy eyes and squeals of delight. Followed closely by Eloise saying "yuck - fruit, I hope I don't get that on my birthday."

..and no birthday is complete without the birthday girls' hair catching on fire in her candles..and loved ones quick to help. Note to self - pigtails for next birthday.

Happy March!

Oh my gosh, that would be one of my favorite gifts also! Looks so yummy. She looks so happy in her birthday hat. Cute cake - but the FIRE - yike! Happy birthday Esther.

I have missed you... and I hope you can hear me...

Thank God that there are some children that eat fruit... Maybe I'll have her rub against my vitamin lacking babies... I try and try... Liv seems to be coming around... but NOT Joe... he's a meat & potato's kind of guy...

Hope you are rollin' in the MJ sales... ENJOY...

Thought I would give this a try again. Whoever thought of this had the best idea...Her favorite thing in the world! Does she still have hair?

I, again have attempted to post 100 times...YIKES. Best idea for the gift ever. Whoever thought of this got right to her heart. Does she still have hair?

Happy Birthday to your sweet girl! I've been worried about you with all the MJ craziness. Hang in there!

Did grandma give the fruit bouquet?? i am only sorry she wasn't wearing the fairy costume while she caught on fire blowing out the candles!! I cannot believe the baby is 4!!! Hugs and kisses

oooo good idea! wish I had thought of fruit! and if your hair hasn't caught on fire, you haven't had a real childhood....

Happy birthday beautiful girl!

My daughters would be the same way with the fruit gift - the youngers would love it and Annie would turn up her nose.
