Happy 6th Birthday Lily!

Lily requested a husky cake this year. Rich stepped up and volunteered to make it for her. I had my doubts, but he managed to do it! It was all kept a secret until she saw it. In fact, he told her the cake broke in half and we'd just have to try again next year. :o) When she saw it, she said, "That's not a husky cake! That's a wolf!" :o) She enjoyed the cake...even if she was unable to blow out the trick candles (that was really fun to watch!). It was especially nice to have her grandparents there to share her special event with her. When you are a military family, those times can be few and far between. I think we had a little celebration for her with my parents when she turned two...that was just a few months after we got her. We've lived overseas for the last 5+ years, so birthdays with family is a rarity. She had a great time!
