There are certain life markers
that indicate the passing of time.
Like getting an invitation
to a high school reunion and thinking
40 years? Really?
retiring from a career that has
been the majority of your lifetime.
Sometimes it's birthdays,
it can be your own,
or the birthdays of your children.
It seems like only yesterday they were babies
and now they're grown
with a family of their own.
And you say, "When did that happen?"
This weekend we headed to Denver to
celebrate the birthday of our oldest daughter, Elizabeth.
What a joy she has been to our lives.
5 years old
A birthday celebration
always requires a cake.
And in this case, it needed to be a polka dot cake.
Here's how you do it.
First, you make some polka dots.
Bake them in a cake.
Then smear big globs of chocolate frosting.
Add few decorations.
Sprinkle in a few hugs and kisses.
And you have a fun birthday celebration.
Then next year,
you'll wonder again,
"Where did the time go?"
Until Next Time-
