This is our birthday girl last night, explaining herself to Lucy, who was in the upstairs window asking her why she'd taken out all of her jewelry (AGAIN). Even on her birthday, Cholita has a tough time staying out of trouble.
For dinner, she'd asked for a trip to Red Robin and made sure that we informed the waitress that it was her special day. While we ate dinner, she heard other September 2nd babies get sung to and could hardly wait for her own turn in the limelight. But when her birthday sundae appeared and our waitress announced that Cholita was celebrating a birthday, the guest of honor looked like she wanted to hide under the table.
It's the price you have to pay to get an ice cream sundae all to yourself, while the rest of the family looks on in envy.
The birthday festivities continued today when our neighbor came over with her horse Clover and asked XiXi and Cholita if they'd like a ride. Ummm, gee, you'll have to talk her into it, but I think she'd be willing.
Happy birthday sweet six year-old!
