Someone just turned 7!

People always say that their children are growing up so fast, where does the time go, I can't believe how grown up they are, blah, blah, blah. Give me a break.

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.


  1. so adorable! happy bday to your little girl! and I would feel the same way about the bowls! :)

  2. Happy birthday to the seven-year-old! (Are we not using proper names one this site? I can't remember, so I'm playing it safe.) I love the rainbow theme. Keri, I totally need to take frosting tips from you.
