Happy Birthday Webby!

Yesterday was Webby's birthday! We all made him cards. the girls both thought that we should buy him a present, but he really didn't want anything. We had a yummy birthday dinner of his choice: Veggie Omelet (more scrambled eggs), Simple Stir Fried Cabbage (first time for this but very yummy, everyone liked it! and Webby doesn't really like cabbage), and Roasted Spare a Kiss (that's how Sweet Girl pronounces Asparagus, so cute!) I should have taken a picture of dinner but I didn't think of it until we were already eating.

The meal ended with Two Layer Carrot Cake with Cream Cheese Frosting and Vanilla Ice Cream! Webby's not big into parties so we just had one close friend come over for dessert.

Happy Birthday Webby! I love you!
