I found glossy sticker paper at Office Depot, which made the sticker labels I made on the computer look "real!" Cute, fun, and easy for her teacher to send home and not worry about :-) . Leave it to a teacher mom to know! We also donated a book to her class in honor of her birthday; her teacher has a special Birthday Bin and she puts a photo and dated label to help them feel special.
Here's where my totally imperfect moment comes in: Well I have always been one to make my own cakes or other sweets for events, and would pride myself in that......BUT.....this cake is from Cold Stone Creamery!
There is a reason for this madness. Who would have ever thought, the dry climate of Southern California would turn extremely HUMID, for the first time in hmmm 4 years.....on daughter's birthday, and wreak havoc on my little cake, before I even finished. :-( And this is my secret confession for Dirty Secret Saturday ;-) !
This became quite the unpleasant moment......ugh. So off to Cold Stone for a ready-made.
Daughter did have a nice birthday though, with Grandma and Grandpa visiting as an added bonus. It was a simple family birthday, as we had offered her a tablet in exchange for a birthday party, which she had accepted! (Another imperfect mom confession!)
or Loopsey in Wonderland....
And family time, well that is always priceless!
Happy 6th Birthday to my baby girl!!!
