Surprise Party 2

Birthday Feast

Yesterday we saw Melody arrive at her surprise birthday party. Her sisters decided a quick tea would be the way to go. Let's see what happens next.

Lanie, Kaya, Kirsten, Haley, Melody, Xyra, all

Wow! This looks great! When do you do all this?
Just now. 
It's your birthday...
And we want to see what's in your presents.
What a spread?
These sandwiches are really good.
It's a pretty cake.
Chocolate with chocolate icing...your favorite.
Pass the chips, please.
Sure. These are awesome. Cracked pepper and sea salt...perfect with roast beef sandwiches.
Why do I have two cups of tea?
Oh, that one is mine.
Um, it's a little bitter.
(sighs) I think I put in too much tea and let it steep too long.
It's fine. (sips and grimaces)
Time to sing!
Light the candle!
Happy birthday to you. Happy birthday to you. Happy birthday dear Mel-o-dy. Happy birthday to you. (giggles)
Make a wish!
Time for presents!

Tune in tomorrow to see what's in all those packages. 

On the menu:
Roast beef and swiss on wheat sandwiches with horseradish and lettuce, Herr's cracked pepper and sea salt kettle cooked chips, Annie's Original Bunny Snack mix, tapioca pudding, M&Ms, water, and hot tea (the Phoenix Mountain Dan Cong). And birthday cake, of course.

Thank you for stopping to celebrate with us. What is your favorite birthday treat?
