this was just 1 of the 2 cakes we made this year. she requested a pound cake with a sugary glaze on it also. the chocolate cake was for the picture & for the little kids...& Daddy of course. but actually i have been told that the pound cake was one of the best i have ever made. i have learned with pound cakes when the recipe says to put the eggs in 1 at a time and mix slowly....well do so or you will ruin the cake.
anyway....here is a close up picture. she was very pleased with her birthday...of course she got a pig, buble' and some new earbud earphones for her ipod. she got a silver pig charm & a new book to read from us. she got money, way too much money for a 15 year old!. my mother also gave her some nice smelling perfume & lotion. she thought that was awesome. She also got a new silver necklace from my mom & dad. she got a nice hoodie and matching bracelet from her friend Candace. So all in all...she got what she wanted and then some & had a nice birthday. She's a good girl. I'm proud of her & glad she had a good day.
Here is her friend Candace.

enough about me though. rachel came out wide eyed without a sound. what a doll she was & still is. she was always a happy baby. easy to make happy. always went along to get along. i honestly only remember 2 times when she has ever really made a fuss. one time we were at a restaurant (long since closed down) called Ryan's and she started to fuss like we had never heard her fuss. she fussed so badly i had to take her out of the building & i stripped her down in the car because i didnt know if she had been bitten by a spider or what. i could not figure out what was wrong with her. needless to say, she stopped and we still have no clue what was wrong with her. then the other time i was walking with my friend, jenny, in jenny's neighborhood - we were walking our kids, and an actually spider or bee or something of that nature got a bit too close for rachel's comfort and she freaked out - the likes i have not seen before or since from her. i do remember jenny and i standing there laughing as it was unbelievable the display. she was fine also.
rachel has always been a delight. she is giving. she is fun. she has a great laugh. i'm proud she is my daughter. here she is with her gift this year - her pig Buble'. she is in love with a pig! (literally!)
HAPPY BIRTHDAY RACHEL! I LOVE YOU.
