Birthday Wishes

9 Oct

Kaukab’s daughter celebrated her birthday this weekend.

Friends broke out the “Happy Birthday” song–an unexpected surprise. A striking contrast to Saturday’s rendition, the family coaxed by the birthday “girl,” followed with clapping before anyone was allowed to slice into birthday girl’s luscious chocolate cake.

Red roses gifted by Hubby. Uncoaxed.

Bring on the next one.
