Miranda turned 17 on the 20th. It's hard to believe time has really flown by this quickly.
We usually get a cake for her Birthday but this year she wanted cupcakes so we picked up a few from the store. Half were chocolate and half were white. All of them had white frosting with red and green sprinkles and each one was topped with a snowflake ring.
Miranda says she likes having her Birthday so close to Christmas because she likes Christmas so it feels like a month long Birthday/Christmas celebration.
Among other gifts Miranda received she gets to take an airplane ride with her Grandpa, the family pilot. He was going to take her up on her Birthday but the weather was more turbulent then was comfortable so we'll be watching for a better day real soon.
