We had a small party at our house on the day of Rebecca's birthday. Both sets of her grandparents came, as well as her Aunt Mary (home from college) and her Uncle Josh. We also had a family friend and her 2 daughters over.
Rebecca requested a taco bar and an "Alvin and the Chipmunks" birthday cake. I was able to get her both things. We had things to make taco boats--- taco boat shaped tortillas, taco meat, all the toppings, mexican rice, mandarin oranges, tortilla chips and salsa, and carrots and celery and dip. And I made her an "Alvin and the Chipmunks" chocolate cake which she loved!
Rebecca got a lot of nice presents...including a new coat, books #1-5 in the "Captain Underpants" series, clothes, shoes, etc. She was truly spoiled!
It was a very nice little get-together. Rebecca had a blast and I think/hope everyone else did as well. And the best part was that almost everyone in our house was feeling pretty good that day, unlike years past when people were sick.....We didn't know then that that was going to change.....
