Warning: This blog contains a sickening amount of PINK in it. You might not be able to take it all at once without puking.Throughout the year, everytime we go to the grocery store, Roxanne always wants to take a look at the cakes at the bakery. One time she saw a Hannah Montana cake displayed, and every since then, she has insisted that when her birthday comes around, she wants to have a Hannah Montana cake. I bravely attempted to create a fondant cake, alongside the guidance of my blogger friend and cake-maker extraordinaire, Holly. I think Roxanne liked it: This morning I gathered everything pink that was littering my house and disposed of it via Roxanne's room. No more pink- until next year.
Pretty GirlsRoxanne told me that she wanted everyone at her party to wear pink dresses. When I told her that the boys probably wouldn't come if that was the rule, she said that was ok. But then I told her I knew of a couple boys who were planning on bring presents. So we decided to say that everyone has to wear pink, but not neccessarily a dress. Even the boys.
Roxanne was pretty much in heaven. She better not expect this treatment again for a long time.
We celebrated Roxanne's 5th birthday yesterday with a "pinkalicious" birthday bash. Over the past 5 years, I've gotten to know Roxanne pretty well, and what I have realized is that she is pretty much the opposite of everything I wanted in a daughter. She is prissy; she is sassy; she is girly; she is opinionated; she is pinkalicous- but I love it all!
Before the party, Roxy and her cousin, who is also her BFF, Elise went to the "salon" to get their hair and nails done.
Apparently Luke thought that wearing pink made him gay. I think Matt disagreed.What is there to not enjoy about pinatas? It's the highlight of every party! Who wouldn't love to hang an adorable looking creature by it's neck and then violently whack it with a stick until it's guts spill out?.... surprise!.... its guts are CANDY! This festive tradition traumatized one child, who couldn't stop crying and had to go home... party pooper!
