Happy 5th Birthday Lis




I was hoping we could all sit outside and have the cake, but, it's brutally hot here. Lissa got a little brownie cake and I bought her a jar of sprinkles which she's been putting on everything. And a load of chocolate ice cream. We shared it with Aunt Casey and Uncle Dan and....poor Rocko just got sprinkles. Aunt Casey told Lis dogs can't have chocolate. How mean! He got dog biscuits though. I thought the poor dog was going to faint from anticipation and the smell of cake. He hung over Lis, sniffing and slobbering and at one point she yelled "Hey, I got dog rain drops on me!" They were both pretty well behaved today. Well, it's still her birthday, I'd better go. I promised I'd play with her all day. More later...if I survive. There's nothing like little happy kids and sweet dogs to make you feel good, right? And how can you have a decent white trash birthday party without a pitbull, an old towel for a table cloth and a kid that needs hosed off at the car wash? Yeee haw.

It looks like she is having fun on her special day! I love how the dog is sitting there just begging Lissa to drop some cake, but is sweet enough to take the sprinkles. Happy Birthday Lissa!

Awww!!! Happy Birthday Lissa!!!!
She's such a big girl!!! AWWWWW!!!
you must be so proud!!!! She is so beautiful, you are a lucky gramma!!!

>dies from cute overload<

DD I'm happy you got the new camera to work. I was out all weekend and couldn't respond to the "don't work" reply. Seems you were right, and there was probably a software problem with it, so it was easier to get a new one instead of struggle with that one.

I need to send you some sunday pics, my MIL's garden and her earthboxes, and the cats. Today Shadow caught his elebenty mouse and was outside being very vocal about it, and Neo and I heard him. Oh, Neo caught his first mouse a couple of weeks ago! He left it as a present next to the hubby's side of the bed. Thanks Neo! LOL!!!

Glad you got to spend your grandaughter's birthaday with her after all. My grandson and I had sprinkles on ice cream cones tonight. We have a boardwalk in my town, sort of a giant carnival but permanent.There is a store called Kohr Bros.,they have the best soft, swirled ice cream. Love to see it melted all over his sweet face!

Happy Birthday Lissa! Hope all your wishes come true! I'm a lover of brownie cakes. Put a piece in the micro for a few seconds and top it with ice cream and I fell like Scooby with a Scooby snack. i feel like I fly up in the air and my feet do a happy dance.
Lissa, I have a pitbull like Casey's. We call them a Red Nose Boudreaux. Ours is 81 lbs. and his name is Reef---but we call him puppy. He thinks he's a chihuahua and likes to sit in our laps. I can't eat chocolate around him. His pitiful eyes break my heart!

Pat, hope you didn't get to worn out today. By the way, I like the blouse that your mom bought for you. It could be the start of a great Mardi Gras costume. For some reason I think you would fit right into New Orleans and Mardi Gras.

Le bon temp roulez----LET THE GOOD TIME ROLL!!

What a great picture. My friend has a pit bull just like that; a sweet noble dog that scares himself in the mirror. Happy B-Day Lissa.

Yeah, he's a sweet dog. Pitbulls get such an undeserved rap.
