Astrid and I have the cake ready

Siggie mixed up this Chocolate pound cake for Ingrid and Astrid frosted it. I hope it will be good. It is going to be sweet and fattening I know that from the ingredients.
I have pinto beans in the crock pot....what other 8 year old would request pinto beans for her birthday meal. Sigrid's Christmas program for school is tomorrow night. I told Ingrid I was sorry I knew it was suppose to be her day....her response "It is okay. It will be like getting another special present from Siggie." Ingird is such a good girl. Gigi went and had lunch with her today and took her refried beans from Taco Bell. I think everyone should understand why her nickname is BEAN.

Ingrid is turning 8!!

Ingrid is turning 8 on Thursday. She is so social so we have big plans. Her best friend from Morrilton and 3 of her girlfriends from school are coming home with her Friday and we are going to the JumpPlace, out for pizza, back home for a movie, cake, and camping out upstairs in the tent and making Christmas ornaments. I hope all this lives up to her expectations and she has a good time. She is really excited about all the girls coming home with her. There will be no fights because she is a Peacemaker and will make sure everyone that comes is happy. I just hope she is HAPPY!!! I wish her a life full of joy, and all her hearts desires.
