MacKenzie Turns 4!

Any holiday is big in our house...and doggie birthdays are no exception!

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!

What did I get?!

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.
