Happy Birthday Debbie Carla!

Here are the decorations - and an unhappy Gabe (he came as a lamb).
Oh, she got a doll!!

Wafting out her candles

The Birthday Girl in the seat of honor - Gabe was sleeping.
Preparations - making the cupcakes. We improvised all the way around - short on cupcake liners (we used wax paper); no icing (we made our own - with the help of Carmen's powdered sugar); short on oil (half oil, half applesauce - and they were actually better than if you used all oil).

Yes, she is a Cabbage Patch Doll. However, Ella got up this morning and remembered it was her birthday so you know, any reason to celebrate! The kids made the decorations and dressed up in their finest attire, I invited the McConnells and it was like any other birthday party. Lofton came with a gift and now I have been instructed that I have to go buy her one...and she wants clothes.
