Birthdays

Today is our dog’s sixth birthday. Jenny is a crazy boxer who is sweet as can be and still as energetic as the day she arrived at our house- perhaps Rob and I should have thought through this dog with an April Fool’s Day birthday- she is still much more puppy than dog- fun but still a lot of work…. Needless to say, however, she loves the girls and the love is returned- especially on her birthday. Caroline has outdone herself this year- her excitement for this day has nearly trumped her enthusiasm for Christmas and Easter- fortunately she did not repeat her Easter early rising (4:30am for the day, “Because it’s Easter!!).  We have baked a cake- complete with “Jello writing”- the questionable, jello looking stuff you squeeze out of a tube. We have wrapped a squeaky toy and the house is covered in art work- created especially for our canine friend. Jenny has received all her gifts graciously- even wagging her tail for pieces of paper covered in Dora wrapping paper. Both my birthday and Katherine’s are approaching this month- I can’t wait to see what Caroline has in store!
