I thought you might enjoy seeing some pictures from the most recent birthday party. Well, I know my grandma is waiting to see some pictures anyway. But if you're here, I hope you enjoy what you see. The theme that was chosen this year was Hawaii. Nothing specific other than wanting palm trees on the cake. Everything else just came together. The awesome paper lanterns were actually a house warming gift from our mortgage broker. Awesome, yes she was. Grandma took the birthday girl shopping for her party gear...cups, plates, table cloth and some other goodies. Then Daddy took her out to get a few more things to really get us in the Hawaiian mood. With Pandora playing hula music in the background and a warm sunny day outside in January, it really was a nice party day.
Cake Mix Doctor Bakes Gluten Free cookbook and doubled it to make a nice big cake instead of a bazillion cupcakes. The cake was muy delicioso! Although I made it too late in the day to ice it the night before. So, a mistake never to be made again, I iced the cake the day of the party. It's not my best work, but the birthday girl squealed with delight when she saw it and that's all that matters.
Regina painted those, well, they're prints, but I love them. I fully intend on making a wanty list for my summer birthday. And there up on top of the fridge is our thankful tree. For the month of November, whenever someone came to our house, they got to write something they were thankful for on a leaf and add it to the tree. We added our own almost every day. I think some have fallen off, perhaps because of a cat paw, hence the reason for such a high place of display. I think I'll save those leaves and then start anew. We don't have to wait for Thanksgiving to be thankful.
So there you have it...and actual lengthy post with pictures. Thanks so much for stopping by. Now, go play a fun game or something! xoANG
