Happy Birthday Kid.

Fourteen years ago today Bella was born.

Today she can run orchestrate a six-girl slumber party in a blink of an eye: got three movies, root beer and ice cream, bean dip and chips, and homemade devil’s food cake.

About that cake. Do you know that its making required no less than six separate bowls for the ingredients? And that I needed to wash the beaters and use them for two different things? Well, the fudge frosting never quite set, but it was delicious as thick fudge-y chocolate sauce dribbled over the cake.

And tomorrow Bella is getting everybody picked up by 11 am so we can head back to Joshua Tree for the weekend. That kid sure knows how to plan her social calendar (she wants to go to another Yucca Valley football game) and I admire her for that.
