Today is LuLu's seventh birthday, and while it's a cliche, it feels like only yesterday she entered our lives - the day after Sammy Sosa was caught with a corked bat, IIRC. Another seven years and she'll be entering high school; seven more after that and she can legally drink.
God willing they'll be a couple posts about her in the next few days, but before the clock strikes midnight I wanted to stop by and post *something* to mark her day. Here are some pictures of the wonderful cake Lisa made to mark her special day. It was two round strawberry cakes, separated by a layer of icing and fresh cut strawberries, with slices of strawberries along the side and an edible image of ballet shoes on top.
It was gorgeous, and tasted just as good (and I'm not a cake guy).
Happy Birthday LuLu! We're proud to have you as our daughter, and we love you very much!
