Emily had a birthday party today and, for the fourth year in a row, Aunt Kris did her usual magic with cake decorating. Last year it was a flower garden on the cake, this year, it was a requested Hello Kitty! cake. She also brought homemade cookies and had Emily decorate them in Hello Kitty! style. We had a lively household with baby Peter adding to the excitement. Tom introduced our grandson to our boys’ old (and vast) Hot Wheel collection. Little Peter already knows how to make car noises, and he was thrilled to see all the little cars waiting for future fun.
