Lauren's Birthday Party in Pictures

Here's the cake. It took all day Friday to make since I made each section in a bowl, and let me tell ya, it takes a long time to bake a cake in a bowl. Even longer to bake four. But, I was happy with how it turned out, and more importantly, Lauren loved it. She said, "You're making it colorful . . . I love colorful!"

Playing a game where they had to fly like butterflies and land on a flower when the music stopped. If the number flower they landed on got called, they were out. Last one in won the game.

Making a craft:

Posing with the cake:

Preparing to blow out the candles:

Listening to her Fisher Price "MP3 player" that she got for her b'day. (It's programmed with like 25 songs; it's not actually programmable.) Is it just me, or does she look way older than she ought to?

AWESOME CAKE! You did a great job! I know I told you the other day in Target, but I wanted to say it again.....I have thouroughly enjoyed getting to know you again through your blog. So many years since high school with no contact, but I feel like I know you again. I have really enjoyed reading your blog and have received so many blessings through your post. God bless you and your family during this Christmas season.

Super impressed with the cake. I can remember my mom making a Tea Pot cake, a Straw Hat cake, a Lion Cake, a Rainbow cake, and a pool party scene, complete with a blue jello pool and little people. I still remember those neat cakes. Lauren will too.
