Happy Birthday, Amira

Faithful friends who still check my blog after all this time, take heart. I am posting again! Although, I am quite tired, so this will be short and lazy style.
Amira turned 3 today. We are waiting to have her official birthday party until my family comes to visit next week, so I will post pictures of the party, then. Still, Amira ended up having a great day. Her best friends from next door are moving out of their house, so they spent the day at our's. I let Amira pick out a bunch of snacks (strawberries, goldfish and lollipops are what she picked) and some movies. She spent the day playing with her new ponies (presents from her friends) and watching Aladdin.
I know I really should include pictures of my beautiful daughter on her birtday, but I'm worn-out from baking and decorating sugar cookies with 3 toddlers. No small task, I assure you. I recommend, if you ever have a kitchen full of kids and decide you want to make cookies you either 1) make chocolate chip cookies, they don't require decorating or rolling or 2) you eat strawberries, instead. Kids like those just as much. At least mine do.
Oh, and since I never got around to posting the rest of my Morocco pictures, I figured I'll just randomly post them, on occasion. Hence the picture of Amira and the palm tree.

Happy Birthday Amira! You are a big pretty girl. Hope you have fun when your relatives comes to visit.

you coulda fooled me- i thought that was a birthday picture and that the palm tree was a hawaii palm tree. i will admit, the picture is even cooler now that i know it was taken in morocco.

happy birthday, amira! i love you!

Thanks for the "Happy birthday" wishes. I didn't even occur to me that the picture could look like Hawaii, how funny. Guess we have palm trees here, too.

I'm just glad that you're blogging again-your blogs enlighten and inspire me...I think it's the way you write. But your daughter is going to be a knock-out. Happy Birthday little one!

She is so cute. It seems as though you are all doing well. I wish we were in Hawaii to celebrate a birthday. Oh well, Houston will have to do for this year. Happy Birthday Amira
