Have no anxiety at all, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, make your requests known to God. Then the peace of God that surpasses all understanding will guard your hearts and minds in Christ Jesus.
Phil 4:6-7

Faith's Day, part II

Part I started here.

Thank you so very much for your kind birthday wishes. Each time I get a new comment, I share it with her and she says, "Awwww, that's soooo niiiice." She's such a girl. She's in heaven.

This morning we baked birthday cake. It's vanilla-flavored but it's colored pink. Of course it is.

Then we got dressed and she accessorized freely. I kept my mouth shut. There is a bow in the front and the back.

 Faith asked me if we could go out to lunch and I said "yes." It's not a frequent occurrence and so when she asked to go to Red Robin I agreed.

After she finished her salad (after she ate five bites and then declared herself full) I let her play Angry Birds, or something, on my phone.

And just a few moments later the whole wait staff showed up with a sundae and sang Happy Birthday. Before we went in, she told me it was ok to tell them. She wasn't quite prepared for all the attention.

We came home and I decorated the cake and she rode her scooter around the cul de sac. She declared the cake to be perfect.

And now, it's time to fry chicken. See ya later.


  1. So fun! And we should all have a tea leaves cardigan and a bow in the front and another in the back to wear on our birthdays!! :)

  2. Happy Birthday to your sweet Peach. Looks like a perfect day with your daughter....FRIED CHICKEN...I'm coming over...I havent had fried chicken in years!

  3. My almost 10 year old loves to accessorize and would love her bows in the front and the back too.

    That cake IS perfect. and perfectly pink!

    We don't have any Red Robins around here, but we do see the commercials!

  4. What a nice birthday! Faith looks lovely in her special cardigan and bows. Give her a hug from me and Meg.

  5. What an amazing cake! Happy Birthday Faith!

  6. Great looking cake! Oh, and how dare you put that "steak and salsa verde" picture on your blog, especially on Ash Wednesday! It looks so good! =)


I appreciate your comments -- sometimes I feel like I'm talking to myself!
