Girl Terror celebrated her ninth birthday this weekend. She doesn't actually turn 9 for another week, but scheduling forced us to party early.
This past year, she has grown, and changed, and is becoming her own person in so many ways. She is starting to show a bit of attitude (which I do NOT appreciate!). Her parents are not nearly as funny as they think. Her brother apparently needs a lot of correction.
The birthday party theme this year was "Rainbows". Basically, she wanted all bright colours. Grandma Beth sent her a dress that fit right in...
I doctor mixes, add to them, and basically use them as a base for my cakes. This one, I simply followed the directions. It did not go well. When I picked them up, they fell apart. The poker boys were thrilled, since it meant free cake. I was less thrilled, since it was 9:00 pm on Friday night, and I needed this cake finished before I went to bed.
So I did something I am horrified to admit....I went to the store, bought premade sponge cakes, and slapped them together. I decorated them, so they are "homemade", right?!
I still can't believe this amazing child of mine is growing up so fast. She's smart, beautiful, and full of life. I love you Girl Terror! Happy Birthday!
