Birthday Girl

My little girl happens to share my birthday month. Even cooler than that is that she shares a birthday with two of her grandparents, Mr. PD's mom's mom on one side and my mom's dad on the other side of the family.

This year she turned 4! I can't believe how quickly the time has flown. We're not big into big birthday bashes around here (at least not yet.) We prefer to have it be a family affair. The birthday boy/girl gets to pick the dinner menu and the type of cake they want. This year Ellie Mae requested "hotdogs, corn and fruit." Now that's a meal I can handle! On the other hand Mr. PD has a birthday next week and he requested tamales! (I'm hoping to convince him to pick something easier!)




Ellie Mae also requested cupcakes, pink ones, instead of cake.



...and as you can see she had a great time blowing out those candles.

Hmm, I think I will visit for supper on Mr PD's birthday! My guess is that you make great tamales.

Feliz cumpleanos Ellie!Que tus regalos hoy sean amor y felicidad.
