The birthday

We had the great 4th birthday celebration yesterday. The snow kept the Aldens in CT, but all the Nasons were able to make it for an afternoon of homemade chicken and rice soup and sandwiches. It was cozy and a bit more quiet than the original plan, which was actually fine since neither Pete nor I are feeling 100%. Lou was just so happy to see everyone, and very proud and excited to show off the cake we made (Sweet Maria's white cake with the classic buttercream that Grandma uses....with fresh strawberries and raspberries in the center, at the birthday girl's request).

We're winding up to blow out candles....
So excited....
Oh boy!
When Aunt Bethy asked what Charlotte's birthday wish was, she replied, "For everyone to eat cake." So we did.
