Rachel is 8! November 19, 2009

Posted by Laura in Family.

Eight years ago, during a particularly bad loss to Alabama, (ask Joe- he was groaning from misery while I was groaning from labor), Rachel Rose entered our lives.  She has added song and dance to every room she enters since then.  She is a joy to us.  Here are a few pictures of her birthday dinner last night.

Rachel loves to cook.  Beck gave us a frog cake pan and Rachel made the cake (marble), then helped me make frosting, and then iced it (adding green M & Ms for warts and one brown one for an eye).   She even placed the candles in it.  It was delicious.

Here is the birthday girl about to blow out her candles.

Rachel  chose “Play with Your Food” a.k.a. “Build Your Dinner” for her birthday meal.  Here is an astronaut on the moon.  On the right (in the distance- play along here) is his space capsule.

A fish.

An ostrich.

A man singing praise songs.

And a water skier.

What a beautiful frog cake. Hope you didn’t lick the frog. I’ve heard it makes you do funny things. Looks like a fun night was had by all.

Happy 8th birthday, RR

I like cake, too.
It’s a good one, Rachel.
Luv, Grams
