Melody turned 9 years old last week. 9! I can hardly believe this will be her last year sporting a single digit age. Next year is the big 1-0. Wow! She’s been all into Zelda: Breath of the Wild a game available on the WiiU and on the recently released Switch (One guess what the kids want for Christmas). It was no surprise that she wanted a Zelda themed cake for her birthday this year.
The weather has provided some challenges when it comes to celebrating the Winter birthdays in our family. Visits to the local LEGO store and a trip to the arcade for my son had to be postponed due to the snowstorm of 2017 here in Oregon!
While the snow was quite beautiful to see, the freezing rain and black ice that came along with it was certainly not. We had to pick up the cake sooner than expected and our visit to have brunch with family almost didn’t happen!
