Friday Haiku, early Saturday morning edition

Haiku Friday

Hello dear Friday Haiku friends,

It is 2:30a.m., the wee hours of Saturday, so I hope this Haiku still counts:

Today’s theme: birthday!

Dear Cadetie, Sweet Sixteen

Lots of fun tonight!

Honestly, I had the German Chocolate Cake baked, and thought I would have time to actually do this post on Friday, but . . . Rebecca and about ten of her girlfriends really wanted to go to the movies tonight. We got to the theater in plenty of time for the 7:15p.m. showing of 29 Dresses, but it was sold out. So . . . We occupied ourselves at the mall until the 10:15 showing. Suffice it to say that time elapsed, and the singing of “Happy Birthday to You”, the eating of cake and ice cream, and the opening of multitudes of presents didn’t happen until about 2a.m. I am barely conscious, but quite conscientious about posting, so here you have it. I’ll put up a photo of Reb’s cake, and maybe some of the jolly party attendees tomorrow.

For more Haiku, visit Jennifer over at Playgroups are No Place for Children and Christina at A Mommy Story.

    She told me that she’d be getting lots of cool stuff! I hope she didn’t pre-order them from the girls and then they in turn had to go and beg and plead with their parents to buy those particular things!! I know that’s how it goes sometimes 😛

    You think with all that cool stuff she’ll still like Deeder’s gift?

    Happy birthday, Cadet 🙂

    Thank you for all of your hard work. The birthday party was a lot of fun and I am sure all of Cadet’s party guests had an awesome time.

  5. […] Mama made a wonderfully nummy Taron-birthday-ish sort of cake for Cadet’s birthday […]

    Hi, Laura,
    Cadet and her friends aren’t like that. If she posts pictures from her birthday get-together, you’ll see that some of the gifts were gag gifts, some were handmade, all were purchased or made by the girls themselves. You’ve been gone a while. Rebecca is a generous-hearted girl. She makes a big deal about the presents to please her friends (The gifts ARE cute and creative.)

    Of course, ANYTHING and everything from Diederick will be treasured by Auntie Cadetie!

    Love,
    Mom 🙂

    Thank you, everyone, for your comments. It was a very happy birthday celebration. 🙂

    I was really impressed by the gals’ creativity…and , as Lou and I always say, she is really good at opening presents and having a cool comment and ‘thank you’ for and on each gift.
    It was a super birthday. 🙂
