Laine turned 5! We had a "Winter SnowFairyPrincess Party." Her friends were invited to come in their princess best. We gave Laine a new dress for the occasion. The girls danced and sang along with a Barbie dvd, played the Princess and the Pea with pillows and beads, sifted for beads in a treasure box full of rice and beads and then strung the beads to make necklaces. But the highlight was decorating their cakes. Laine was so excited to have a princess cake. I let her pick out the Barbie, she chose a ballerina Ariel, and then it was a surprise on her birthday of how it looked. Then I made little cakes for her friends and used Polly Pockets for the dolls. We had little tubes of frosting gel in lots of colors and lots of pretty sprinkles to choose from. Then of course they got to dig in and eat their creations. It was a delightful way to celebrate Laine's birthday. And then she started piano lessons that evening. She's a special girl.
