Within theoretical walking distance (at -17 C, it's not really walking distance for Emily at the moment) from our townhouse, there is a shopping center that has a Chez Cora (a breakfast place that features lots of fruit with every entre) and a ToysRUs. So for Emily's birthday, that's where we went for some serious child spoilage. Tonight, it'll be homemade pizza and carrot cake with candles.
She also took a few minutes away from her new dog to be very pleased with her beautiful clothes, from Grandma (which she will be wearing at her next Drama class), and another toy dog and game too.
Anyway, it's bright and sunny today; and we're in a good good place. Hope you all are too!
