It's not that we don't like Elmo but the thought of all the red frosting made me want to cry. So I talked her into a Wubbzy cake. I made the cake from scratch and the frosting too. Chocolate and chocolate...YUM!
Then, the morning of her birthday (yesterday), hubby took ET to get her some balloons. Our kids love balloons--all kinds of balloons.
We had already gotten her presents when I saw an ad on Craigslist for the Rose Petal Cottage and Cherry Blossom Market--new in box. Normally these two would run around $150 but we got them for $45. They seem pretty sturdy, too, but only time will tell. The kids all love them and played in them pretty much all day.
After dinner, we had a party! We invited all of my family that lives close. My brother is in town and my other brother and my cousin are at BYU and my Aunt lives here. So everyone brought their significant others and there was plenty of cake to go around...4 times :)
