happy birthday, littlest sass!

This tiny baby turns 21 today, and in honor of her birthday I said we would spend the day doing whatever she wants. What she wants is to eat pizza for lunch, go see a matinee of Twilight (“You’ll love it, Katie! It’s my new Titanic!”), and eat pizza for dinner. After dinner she has requested white cake with internal sprinkles and cream cheese frosting (I actually tried to talk her out of that particular combination, but the girl was adamant). She's lucky she's one of my favorite people, and one of the only people I would eat pizza, watch the new (or the old) Titanic, eat more pizza, and then eat sprinkle cake with.

As Maura put it, "Oh my god, we're going to die." And when we do we will be canonized.


  1. Darling Madeline, you are absolutely adorable -- then and now!!!

    And I think your menu sounds perfect...except for the Twilight part. I've actually seen that movie and can wait many years (a lifetime would be too short) for the sequel.

    Happy Birthday!!!!!

  2. In the kindred spirit of classic movie going, just know that I will be attending a matinee showing of "Monsters Vs. Aliens" today - also at the request of someone else much younger than I. I will anxiously anticipate the "Twilight" review... Happy birthday to Madeline! Best of luck to you and Maura - may your GI systems prevail.

  3. Twilight was no longer in theaters (I was going to write "sadly," but I wasn't sad). Instead we went to "I Love You, Man," Maddie with high hopes (she's amazingly optimistic) and me with low expectations. But it was actually pretty funny. And M v. A? Did the lil' Challahs enjoy it?

  4. Ugh, NOT prevailing. That cake hurt my feelings.
