Layla and her kitten

Her Littlest Pet Shop cake

Layla Beth turned 7 yesterday. I cannot believe it. She says she had her best birthday ever, because she got a kitten that she named Josie. I don't have many pictures to show, we had children photographers, and most of the pictures didn't turn out.

Now, remember that picture at the top? The one of Ruth with chocolate all over her face? That is how she woke me up at 5:20 this morning. She climbed in bed and said, "mommy." I looked at her and saw something on her face. It was dark and I couldn't tell what it was. Right then James got out of the shower. I said, "Ruth has something on her face." He turned the light on. He laughed. "I know what it is," he said. We went to the kitchen. Layla's chocolate cake had been a little destroyed. One piece had much of the frosting eaten off, and there was cake on the table and floor. Ruth had woken up and gone straight to the kitchen, found the cake and started eating. It was very cute.
