Recently I came across this old photograph of me at my sixth birthday party.
I still remember details, it was held at my grandmother's house. The cake had
little plastic ballerinas on it. My grandmother made the cake and
decorated it. I am sure the icing had cream cheese in it.
For a long time I kept some of the ribbons and ballerinas on
one of the paper party plates. It was hanging up in my room.
Fast forward to the 2000s, several years ago in a thrift/antique store
I found the exact decorations that were used at that
birthday party so long ago. Blogging gives me an excuse
to get out the old ballerinas, plates, forks and spoons.
|The pink in the plate comes across as orange in the photo. Oh, well ... |
I do live now in Big Orange Country. :-)
My birthday cake today consists of one piece of Tiramisu from the Fresh Market. Clint and I are heading to the gym. When you work as hard as we have recently, it makes us think twice about having
the temptation of a whole cake around.
Get ready, Clint, tomorrow is your big day! My mother-in-law always calls and sings Happy Birthday to the family members. She just called me and it was so sweet to hear her "sing" Happy Birthday to me. If she happens to read
this blog, she will laugh at me putting "sing" in quotation marks. This family totally understands.
It takes a long time to grow young
