Happy Birthday Bekah!!
Bekah is five years old, and she and Eva decided that they would like to celebrate their birthdays, together, this year. Their birthdays are three days apart so they decided to split the difference. They want strawberry cake with strawberry ice cream, with strawberries and whip cream on top! Maybe they like strawberries...Bekah wanted 4 "bobbies" (Barbies) and of course, her daddy got her five. I heard her whispering with her sister that she was going to ask for 4 so they could both have 2. Being a sweet Daddy, he got her the little miniature ones that are dressed like pretty princesses instead of the unrealistically proportioned ones that are dressed like... well, you can't even say what some of those dolls are dressed like. What kind of parent would buy those dolls dressed like.... It just mystifies me. And then they wonder why their 11 year old is acting a bit too old for her age... OK, end of rant, It just doesn't seem right to see children or their toys dressed in ways that an adult should be ashamed of dressing... Really, end of rant. I never had this problem with GI Joe! Everyone teases the girls that they better brace themselves for their courting days 'cause with five older brothers, it isn't going to be easy!!

I couldn't agree with you more, Nines!! I, too, can't figure out how parents can put their little girls into the same style of clothes that their doll wears...and not see a problem with it. Thank goodness neither of my girls liked playing with Barbie.

Happy B-day to your girls!!! :o)

Happy birthday! What a great week at your house Nines. I love birthdays and you have the joy of so many happy times during the year.

I bet you had a wonderful day. And all the strawberries. Yum.

By birthday cake growing up was Angel Food Cake with pink icing. I think I'll have to make one this year.

Hugs all around.

Happy birthday, Beka. Enjoy all those strawberrries!

I am SO with you on those dolls. And the fact that they make little girls clothing (my daughter is in size 5) emblazoned with their images, and I have to try and explain why mommy doesn't want to buy those, and no, you can't have them...

Sounds like a fun birthday party menu! One of my nephews and I are 1 year, 1 week apart and we always try to celebrate our birthdays together - so much fun!

And once, I stayed at a very UPSCALE ski resort that just so happened to be hosting a Teen Model Search... shocking, really! And we aren't even talking tropical climes here - it was a SKI area!!!

2 very sweet girls you have there!
