We celebrated little L's fifth birthday last week. I can't believe how fast time flies. Seriously, my youngest is five? Goodness! We spent her birthday with just the four of us. We started out the day eating out for breakfast and then coming home for presents.
She loved the gift big L picked out for her...sponge rollers! Here she is giving him a hug because she was so happy.
With hair curled, we had a small party for her on Sunday afternoon. She wanted a Littlest Pet Shop cake, so I did the best I could...
I use the same cake recipe every year and it never fails me. Just enough sugar to put one into shock. And I had great image in my head of how to decorate the cake. The actual product wasn't quite as perfect, but she loved it! I was going to try to get a better photo but people started arriving and I had to put the camera down for a second. And then suddenly the lighting in the room was very sad. I was so disappointed that every photo from the party was blurry. Oh, well.
I think the one of the best parts of this birthday is that for days she would come up to me and grab me and say, "I am just SO happy!" What mother wouldn't want to hear that every day?
