Another Family Birthday!

Ranak's birthday finally came around. Birthdays are a big deal in our family, and we make a huge fuss over the birthday person (regardless of age, breed etc.).

Presents were secretly bought and stealthily wrapped. The cake was kept hidden until showtime.

Candy was extremely unhappy at being woken up and made to wear a color-coordinated collar. But she did get all excited at seeing the cake!

Ranak had a hard time blowing out the candles. Weak lungs? Nope, we just got him trick candles (ha ha)!

Everyone had the yummy cake. It was black forest, and sinfully rich in calories. But really, who's counting?

The birthday boy wondered what was in the box.

Candy didn't want the remainder of the cake to be repacked! And was thoroughly disgusted when it was put away! She believes in eating in one go.

Excitement over, let me share with you a verse by Robert Browning:

"Grow old along with me! The best is yet to be."

And last but not the least, the ode to the birthday boy:

"I draw a circle, not a heart, around you, My husband, the one I love Because a heart can break But a circle goes on forever."
