Even squirrels like birthday cake

Sunday, December 5, 2010
Yesterday was my birthday. I love a celebration. No matter how old I am, I will always love celebrating my special day. Yesterday was no exception. But there was one mishap. One we never saw coming. Henry and the girls went to great lengths (as they always do) to ensure that my birthday was an unforgettable one...right down to the cake. A gourmet cake with chocolate ganache icing. Mmmmm...

The hubs placed the cake on the deck since we didn't have a whole lot of extra space in the refrigerator. About an hour later, Emma spotted a squirrel devouring my cake. My cake! I was to be the one devouring that cake. So, what did we do? We moved the cake from the table to the deck surface so that the squirrel could have his way with it. We probably should have sang "Happy Birthday" to the squirrel.
