Follow up to She is 15.
Emily decided she did want a birthday party after all. We had initially planned on having the party outside because my house is pretty small but the rain interfered with that notion. In the end it turned out better inside the house. Emily got her Cuban dinner as she requested… Congri (rice mixed with black beans), Yuca with mojito, Pork shoulder, salad and bread. For dessert she decided instead of a large cake she wanted to make mini cakes and mini flan’s (cuban desert). It was fun, we made Sugar cookie cake with frosting and Red Velvet cake with cream cheese frosting. I personally did not have any of the sweets, even if I had wanted a piece by the end of the night they were all gone. Huge success!
It was a fabulous party! Words cannot describe how wonderful it is to be surrounded by those you love. Emily spent the evening laughing, her smile was from ear to ear to whole time. All of our guests had a blast too.
Moments like these are what life is all about!
