Cora...AKA Belly

My baby is turning seven years old tomorrow. I can't believe it! She is such an amazing little person. In her seven years, she has grown her hair out not once, but twice to donate to Locks of Love. She has developed a sense of humor that resembles the Royal Tenenbaums or Monty Python. She has an incredible sense of style "do these combat boots go with my dia de los muertos skirt?" and I say "ABSOLUTELY" :-) We were discussing today what she wanted to serve her party guests tomorrow...pumpkin cupcakes with cinnamon cream cheese (yum) and caramel apples with mini M&Ms, chocolate chips, chopped peanuts...Mark asked if we were just melting caramel squares and she said "no daddy - we are doing homemade caramel because homemade tastes better than store caramels." Geez, I love her! She is kind, she is beautiful, she is so smart, she raises worms, she loves to garden, she is my daughter.
