I felt really bad because I usually make the birthday girl (or boy) the dinner of their choice, the cake of their choice and they get to eat on the special plate. But, I had such a hectic weekend because we just celebrated Thanksgiving, I had my parents here, I tore down the Thanksgiving decorations and I had just gotten the house decorated for Christmas.
I was exhausted and simply ran out of time, so, Rachelle ended up getting take out pizza for dinner, we forgot to get out the special plate and she got a box of chocolates for her cake! That didn't stop us from having fun though, we just put candles in the chocolates and sang Happy Birthday! We had a lovely night. I just love this picture with her holding the baby and smiling at the "cake" and Grayson and Eric smiling in the background. I love our family so much and I love this girl so much!
P.S. I told Rachelle we will be doing an "unday" birthday for her in six months and I'll make the dinner and dessert of her choice and she'll be using the special plate and she'll get a traditional Goodwill present that I also forgot about (wow, shame on me!).
