Then In April, Lexi and her roommate, Amanda came for the night on their way to Phoenix to participate in Pat's run. It seems like every year Lexi manages to come home either on her birthday, or close enough to it that we can have a little celebration. I let her pick the dinner menu and she chose steak so that's what we had. I tricked her and told her I didn't have time to make a cake, but there was a poppy seed bread left over from Christmas in the freezer that we could have. I could tell she was a little disappointed at that. So when I brought out her favorite cake she was pretty happy.
If anyone is wondering why there is a 4 candle on her cake, the reason is it was the only birthday candle I had in the house. Lame, I know. But she had to blow out something! A few weeks later I was cleaning out a drawer and found a whole box of candles...............typical.
So happy to you Lexi! I hope your birthday was fun, even though you had to have a stupid number 4 candle on your cake!
