Birthday was wonderful

The Birthday Honoree (top photo on right)











The stir-fry turned out excellent, the cake was moist, and dd chose her ice-cream: Cookies & Cream and Rocky Road. The company was very diverse and fun! The kids got chiggers on their feet :-) from their little foray of outdoor photos in the wildflowers...but it was worth it, I hear. Instead of candles going on the cake, we each lit a tall, skinny, sparkling candle to blow out in honor of DD's birthday, and to represent our relationships in her life.
Friends stayed late, watched the stars from the rooftop, and one friend stayed over. The presents? Lots of music and tea things, and even some clothes. Some of our best adult friends came for the celebration, as well. This was a happy birthday, indeed!

Thanks for your post. I don’t know if you’re familiar with Maya & Miguel, a show on PBS in the afternoons -- http://pbskidsgo.org/mayaandmiguel -- that emphasizes cultural diversity and language learning but I’m reaching out to talk to parents about the program as part of a marketing project I’m working on with Scholastic.

I found your post and thought I’d reach out to say hello and ask if you’d like to receive a free Maya & Miguel DVD. If you’d like to receive the DVD just email me at Kerri at boldmouth.com with your address and I’ll have it shipped it out to you.

If you do choose to blog about Maya & Miguel show or episodes on the DVD, please make it clear how you received the information. Our goal is to be open and honest with everyone we reach.

Kerri Roberts, BoldMouth
