Well, we’re back from a fun night of partying. Jessica opened her gifts from her sisters after school. Lydia bought her a Strawberry Shortcake doll, Elaina gave her a Barbie Mermaid and Anjelia was proud to give her another cute doll. Jessica practiced riding her new bike and then we headed for Chuck E. Cheese. The pizza was actually pretty good. The girls had a blast playing games. I think James has as much fun as the girls. He loves to play skeet ball and win lots of tickets for them. God is so good to us. A gentlemen gave the girls 1000 tickets tonight! They were able to “shop” and get some neat things. It was yet another birthday blessing. (Jessica’s bike rang up half price at the register!)
I made Jessica one of her favorite cakes, Red Velvet. I finally got Mom’s wonderful cream cheese icing recipe from her. I grew up eating this delicious icing. She used it on all her cakes. Mary, I owe you a cake with this frosting!
Cream Cheese Icing
1 – 8 oz. package cream cheese
1/4 cup oleo
1 3/4 cup powdered sugar
