On another note, the other day I was picking Kirsche up from school and on the drive I was inquiring as to what she wanted Santa to bring her for Christmas. Our conversation went like this:
Mom: What do you want Santa to bring you for Christmas this year?
Kirsche: An American Girl doll.
M: Maybe an American Girl doll is a little too expensive for Santa this year.
K: Well, I really don't care what I get from Santa this year ... (at this point I'm getting ready to praise her for being more grateful of what she actually receives, but wait - here comes the curve ball) ... I don't care if I get a Molly or a Kit or a Sophie from Santa as long as it's an American Girl.
I think I've still got a long way to go on figuring out kids!

My sister, Lisa, also celebrated a birthday on November 21st. This is the birthday card I made for her. I think it turned out really cute.
I have decided to make homemade goodies for friends and neighbors. Ethan is dipping fondant-covered cherries in chocolate. I think I will follow up with coconut balls, too.
Braelyn's cake choice was Red Velvet which we made into cupcakes and everyone helped decorate.
Braelyn received a Hannah Montana microphone and a Sunday dress.
