if i knew you were comin’.

we celebrated babydoll’s birthday (again).
i swear, they say that once you have kids, time flies by
but i really think that once your kids have buddies that celebrate birthdays, 
that’s really when time flies.
it seems as though babydoll has a birthday every week.
that’s probably because she does. 

just think, if you celebrated your birthday with us, 
we could treat you as nicely as we treat babydoll.
on her birthday, nonetheless.

K served the finest treats.

here’s her recipe for babydoll’s birthday cupcakes
(straight from the mouth of the “cooker” as she calls herself):

raspberries, strawberries, ketchup, honey, pizza, honey, bread mix, ketchup, more honey, more ketchup, bread mix again, chocolate, ketchup, chocolate, ketchup, chocolate, ketchup, chocolate, ketchup, chocolate, ketchup, chocolate, ketchup, chocolate and that’s all.

okay, sounds easy enough.

i’ll leave you with a little version of this song that my Gram sings:

if i knew you were comin’ i’d’ve a baked a cake,
hired a hall, had a ball.
if i knew you were comin’ i’d’ve a baked a cake,
howd-ya do, howd-ya do, howd-ya do.

well, i don’t know where you’ve come from.
and i don’t know where you’ve been.
but it really doesn’t matter
grab a plate and get your platter
and dig, dig, dig, right in.

if i knew you were coming i’d a baked a cake,
howd-ya do, howd-ya do, howd-ya do.

Finally, brothers and sisters, 
whatever is true, 
whatever is noble, 
whatever is right, 
whatever is pure, 
whatever is lovely, 
whatever is admirable—
if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—
think about such things
