Today was our granddaughter's 6th birthday party. Her birthday was April 5th and she had a small, short party at school, but today was the BIG party. She has been so excited and has taken an active part in the planning of this party. Here are some pictures from the celebration.
There first thing on the kids' agenda was to go outside
and have some fun in the backyard.
Every Princess must have her own banner.
Here's our little princess.
She had a crown, scepter and sash that said "Birthday Princess".
There were crowns for all the guest. The little princes had manly crowns. :)
I have been honored to make all the birthday cakes for her and her little brother. You can see the "line up" if you go here and here. Since this year was a princess theme, a castle cake was a must. Here's the cake.
She asked for blueberry cake.
This was a french vanilla cake with blueberry cheesecake filling.
These were blueberry cupcakes.
I revamped the strawberry cake recipe that's made with strawberry jello
and frozen strawberries and used berry blue jello and blueberries.
It was blue and tasted great.
I used egg whites instead of the whole egg
because blue and yellow (egg yokes) make green
-- I didn't want green cake batter.
She's a blessed little girl. She has family and friends that love her dearly, a beautiful home and an over abundance of toys. But the most important thing is this; she is being taught the Truth of God's Word. We are praying that someday soon, she will accept Christ as her personal Savior.
Have a blessed evening,
