It was my middle daughter's 7th birthday today! We decided to take her out for dinner but while I was volunteering at her school this afternoon she said she really wanted her grandparents (from both sides of the family) to join us. When I said that it was too late notice and they probably wouldn't be able to make it, she turned on the puppy dog eyes (complete with tears welling up) and said "Can you please just ask?" How could I say no? There's no harm in asking. So at 3pm this afternoon I called the grandparents and asked if they could come for a birthday dinner at a local Chinese Buffet restaurant (as the request of my little C2) and to my surprise (sort of) they all responded with "Okay" and no hesitation. How great! An impromptu party of 9 to celebrate a special day. Life is good.
In honour of my little C2 and her passion for all things "Penguin" I got a jump start on the Christmas cards and make a few that I knew would make her smile! Here's to you my little mango. I love you lots!

This card makes me smile. It's simple and sweet.
