KRISTEN MARIE TURNS 5!


It's been a whirlwind last few days and it ends on a high note with Kristen's birthday party - pizza, cake and some great friends/family (we missed you Grammy Beck!). I found this cake idea when I was googling for such. It's from http://www.bettycrocker.com/Recipes/Recipe.aspx?recipeId=40760 and it's called the groovy jeans cake, although we opted to make our groovy jeans pink instead of their blue. It was simple but very cute and she really liked it. I'm not sure if my favorite part is the fruit roll-up belt or the rock candy rhinestones. Way too many presents and she's already been into her new Barbie markers to color her cuttlebug jr. alphabet cutouts she made as well as played with her Barbie laptop. She's set with lots of crafts to do between now and Christmas (and then some!). She's going to love doing the projects that everyone got for her!

You just couldn't stand to do the simple pink cake your daughter asked for! Although, I do have to say that that cake rocks!

Glad to hear that Kristen was well spoiled with gifts that will fuel her creativity.
