She had her birthday cake all planned out: we had a sketch on the refrigerator with arrows indicating what filling went where. There are chocolate frosting, whipped cream, and raspberries in the schematic.

And at long last, there is Josefina.
This is so much like last year, just with bigger teeth. May it ever be!
