Belated Birthdays

After talking about noise the other day, this silence-appreciating mother was inundated by extra noise.  It came in the delightful form of two of Miss Sunshine's closest school friends.  Beautiful young women who are a joy to spend time with....even with all the noise.

Miss Sunshine wanted to do something a little bit different.  Her friends both love quirky and loves spiders and bugs as well.  So we're off on a bit of an adventure today that is animal and bug related.  The three of them made a zoo cake last night with some toy animals the Yera 5/6 teacher happily lent to me.  I'd mentioned my reluctance to expend resources on purchasing and then storing things that would only get one use.  I'm not inclined to collect and keep clutter, so borrowing and returning the clutter is a fantastic alternative.

My highlight last night? All teens roll their eyes, even the ones you don't expected it from.  Those girls make me laugh.

Did you take a picture of the zoo cake? I'd love to see it!
