There she is! Dinner is done and time for gifts... finally! She read all her cards first. "7" is her favorite number.
Quite the haul and ready for a cold snap.
Strawberry-kiwi with a touch of banana. Finnish birthday cake with honey. De-lish. Two strawberries on top to her specifications. We had to for-go the mint leaf garnish vision, as no fresh greens at hand. Lydia had her hand in every part of the birthday meal. She was a great helper.
"7" pretty lights. Happy birthday to you, happy birthday dear Lydia.
