But, my children are growing up so fast. Where did the time go? I can't believe how grown up they are.
Especially this one.
She chose a rainbow theme this year. I'm not sure when we instituted the theme idea, but now no birthday goes without a theme. They've even selected one for my next (36th) birthday: gardens. I like it.
The idea of rainbows was so sweet so cheery, so beautifully scientific (think: Roy G. Biv). But then I started frosting. First, I was dirtying way too many bowls.
Then, the red stripe made every last cupcake look so forlorn.
And the big cake was just depressing.
I couldn't help but sing "It's my party and I'll cry if I want to, cry if I ..." It's a good thing there are 6 other stripes to redeem the effect.
The party was a big hit. 1 birthday girl + 1 sister + Pin the Red on the Rainbow + Twister + Hey, check out this cool prism + everybody paint mini pumpkins with glitter + pasta and pesto + cupcakes = 1 colorful party. And no one wanted to cry.
