MacKenzie turned 4 yesterday! Her first year I bought her a doggie cake from a local barkery (yeah, I said barkery). That was a little extreme, as I had never pictured myself spending $15 on a bone-shaped cake for my dog before. For her 2nd and 3rd birthdays, I baked her favorite treat - peanut butter banana oat bars with honey. This year, we were a little short on time, so Jason bought cupcakes...human-style. This went over very well with the MacKenzie and Dash!
And what comes after cake? Presents, naturally. Each dog gets a new toy and they both get treats on a doggie birthday. (By the way, as I'm proof reading this, I realize I sound a little ridiculous.) Then its play time!

Right after the birthday celebration, we continued the holiday festivities by carving our pumpkins! Stay tuned for images of that process...
Happy 4th Birthday, MacKenzie! You're Mama's favorite girl.
