The best kind of birthday party

There's nothing quite like a four-year-old and a two-year-old throwing a birthday party for a nine-year-old and a three-year-old -- especially when the first two are the cutest kidlets ever and the second two are the cutest dogs ever!

I'm babysitting for our neighbors, Abby and Ty (the kidlets) tonight which, it turns out, is the day after Shasta and Quinn's birthday.  If you mention something like that to pre-schoolers, this is what you get:

"Put the frosting on the cupcakes?  But that's a wasted opportunity!"  Look at Ty's cheek!

An entire cake and a whole bunch of cupcakes, all for dogs!  No way!  They'll get sick! 
Solution: bring most of the cupcakes to Tom and save ONE for each dog.

Once the cupcakes were decorated, the kids brought them to our house and presented them to confused, but very happy dogs.  Quinn always sits nicely when she wants something!

Abby and Ty even bought and wrapped presents for the birthday girls!

A whole package of balls!  Shatsa is in heaven!

Needless to say, so is Quinny!

Doggy heaven, defined.

Ty and Abby teach Quinn and Shasta all about one-to-one correspondence.

It was all over too soon.  Goodbye, friends!  Thanks for the party!  Sleep tight!

(This is another blog post from my Chromebook, using the Blogger app.  I dunno, the formatting feels a bit kludgy.  I'll try to figure this out before we leave for Europe in three weeks!)
