Täna On Elizabethi Sünnipäev

Today is Elizabeth's birthday, and we had a fun time celebrating with her. She woke up to the smell of bacon and cheese eggs for a special breakfast. Then at lunch time she and I had lunch with Evelyn at the university cafe when Evelyn had a 30 minute break from classes. In the afternoon, she came to the corps to join us for Corps Cadets, mostly because everyone wanted to wish her a happy birthday. I know I've mentioned it before, but birthdays are a big deal in Estonia, and everyone wants to shake your hand and say "Palu õnne" to wish you the best on your special day. Some of the ladies at the corps gave here a 1kg box of chocolates, and I bought an Estonian peanut cake to share with everyone.

When we got home, Elizabeth and Evelyn went out for some special girl time while I cooked the special supper that she wanted: spaghetti and meatballs. After that, we had birthday brownies and ice cream.

We were going to have birthday cake, but when I went to the only store in town that has American foods, they had the Betty Crocker cake mix, but were out of frosting. But they did have fudge brownie mix, and Elizabeth said it made a great birthday surprise.

Before she went to bed, she said to us, "I had a really great day!" so it looks like her 11th year is off to a good start.
