This weekend we celebrated DD4's 18th birthday. It was a quiet celebration with just a few of us gathered for presents and conversation, and of course, chocolate cake and chocolate ice cream! Yea for cake and ice cream, the traditional birthday dessert! It's been a few months since we've had a birthday at our house, so we really enjoyed the treat.
For most of my growing up years my family had cake and ice cream for dessert almost every Sunday. And then, of course, there were always leftovers for after school snacks on Monday. In our home now we usually have a dessert of some sort on a Sunday, but it's usually cookies rather than cake and ice cream, so now our birthday treats are extra special. Thanks, DD4, for having a birthday!
