I’m a year behind. Seriously, I’m a full year behind! Last week Miss Engima celebrated her 6th birthday with an Operation Christmas Child Packing Party. But what happened to her 5th birthday party? No, we didn’t skip her birthday last year . . .

Last year, the kiddos baked delicious Mini Cheesecakes for Miss Enigma’s 5th birthday. I took bunches of pictures but never got around to posting the ultra easy and yummy recipe. I live my life by the saying, “Better late than never!” These birthday cupcakes were as big hit with the adults as the children!

This year Miss Enigma announced she wanted to bake Mini Cheesecakes again. We followed the same directions but changed up the decorations. Miss Enigma loooooooves dogs, hence the doggie decorations.

And after much begging . . . Our family grew by four feet. We’ve added another little rescue doggie to our family. (Don’t Shop. Adopt!) Meet Autumn, Miss Enigma’s birthday present. Happy Birthday to our little enigma!
