Last month (playing catch up over here), Caroline turned 5!!! This year we kept her birthday low key and celebrated with just us. We had one of her favorite breakfast meals. Pancakes with strawberries and whip cream, bacon, and eggs. After stuffing ourselves crazy and opening gifts, we all took a little snooze. After our long nap, we sang Happy Birthday to the sweetest little girl and ate some cake. We had 2 different cakes...a homemade cake and a store bought flower cake that Caroline has been eyeing for awhile now. She loved both of them because that meant we got to sing Happy Birthday two times in a row and she got to blow out 2 sets of candles.
"You will have significant experiences. I hope that you will write them down and keep a record of them, that you will read them from time to time and refresh your memory of those meaningful and significant things. Some may be funny. Some may be significant only to you. Some of them may be sacred and quietly beautiful. Some may build one upon another until they represent a lifetime of special experiences." Gordon B. Hinckley
Enjoy the little things; for one day you may look back and realize they were the big things. -Robert Brault
