Bilingual baby turns 3

We had a very small number of our friends over to celebrate Juli’s birthday. I am really aware of how many people she can relate to at one time and I didn’t want to overwhelm her. I know she likes to play with so many kid friends and from experience figured it would be easier on her to invite only 2 of her similar aged friends.
Our shindig went really well. We’ve been talking about her change of age and her party for about a month now, maybe longer. I made her a cake and had oh so much fun! I made two icings. One had brown rice syrup and barley malt so it was brown and went inside the cake. The other was a tofu/kale (and some more rice syrup and a drop of peppermint) icing for the top. BB wanted a green cake, which prompted the search for ingredients I wouldn’t mind her ingesting- seeing as she would already be very wound up from the fun of having a party in her honor.
My brother in law would be proud. Except that the cake broke when I was trying to transfer it from the pan to the plate. Sheesh. Luckily, I had the green frosting to cover up my mistakes.
She was very wound up. She had so much fun. It also started snowing so she and her two friends, along with a couple adults, went outside and tried to catch snowflakes on their tongues.
Later, after sunset, the four of us went outside and played in the snow some more. We’ve been looking forward to the snow since the first snowfall in mid October. It’s about time!
