actually two, no three, very special people. scarlett turned 3, shannon turned 25 and david turned um, 46 (ha-ha). shannon decided to do cupcakes this year and we had so much fun decorating them...then using this cool cupcake tree to display them.
we made a special cake just for scarlett, one where she could blow out the candles...i know there are four candles on her cake but we figured, the more the merrier.
unfortunately, scarlett was not too excited to blow out her candles this year. she absolutely refused and got a little shy when we tried to sing "happy birthday" to her and simply walked away from the table.
we brought her back to the table but she refused to blow out the candles...so her cousins did the job for her....
...but that didn't go over too well either, she was not happy about that at all. in the end, she blew out one candle and the cousins got the other ones again. eventually, though, she did stop crying long enough to open her presents and in the end, enjoyed her birthday. happy birthday, scarlett. and happy birthday to my beautiful daughter, shannon, i love you....and that new life you are carrying. and to my favorite brother, david...we love you and happy birthday, old man.
