This sweet little girl had THE best birthday party recently! I arrived at her aunt and uncle's home to find it lovingly decorated, tables over-flowing with homemade foods and a house soon full of family and close friends. She was passed from one loving set of arms to the next. Great grandma led a prayer before Happy Birthday was sung and then everyone ate. Very smart. Do the cake BEFORE the luncheon, then relax and enjoy all that great food and company! When it came time for me to leave, a plate of delicious food was handed to me despite my half-hearted objections. ;-) All the warmth in this home made venturing out into that February afternoon much easier to bear.
