It's Mary's birthday! We had a party for her on Saturday. It was a very small party this year. Mary got a few presents and some money for her piggy bank. She'd been saving her money for 2 months, and finally got enough to get the camera she wanted. We went yesterday and got it. She was thrilled.
Remember last year when Mary freaked out when we sang Happy Birthday to her? This year, she sang it to herself in front of everyone! I thought she'd chicken out, but she didn't. Then we all sang to her.
This year, Mary had a chocolate cake with orange (colored, not flavored) icing. We just colored it with food coloring until it was the perfect shade for her.
I wish we'd taken more pictures. But it's sort of hard to take them while trying to keep Ellie from doing laps on top of the dining room table! John did snap a good pic of the girls, my Dad, Grandma Mary and me at the end of the party.
We also got some home improvement done over the weekend, but I'll save that for another post. And I finally got my darn red flannel fabric. Now, no more shopping trips for me until March.
