As long-time followers of our blog know, our birthday was the other day. We started our evening by opening our cards and presents: we got lots and lots of shorts and skorts and skirts and a couple of shirts as well. Daddy made us dinner -- burritos and kugel (combining the Hispanic and Jewish sides of our family). And then we had dessert. There was a chocolate cake with vanilla icing and ice cream. It was a great day.
