Yeah I am a little late. Her birthday was November 23rd... life has been crazy busy recently... that's my excuse anyway. :)
Since her birthday was the day before Thanksgiving she had her birthday off from school. We got to play outside and swing on the swing set.
It is hard to plan a birthday party around holidays. So.. I didn't. I know, I know I am a terrible mom. But she didn't seem to care one way or the other. I took cupcakes and treat bags to her class at school earlier in the week. That seemed to make her very happy.
That afternoon we celebrated as a family. She was playing outside when I called "Maylin come quick!" She came running in to find a pile of presents with a cupcake and candle.
We sang "happy birthday"
very cute apron!
The day just wouldn't be complete without having made her own birthday cake. We baked a two layer sprinkle cake with strawberry icing and sprinkles GALORE!
