This year, Gabbie decided she wanted a Hello Kitty cake. I was actually kind of relieved as I didn't have to plan a design for a cake because I could just buy a Hello Kitty cake pan.
So Saturday, I set out to bake her cake. I guess this was not my weekend for baking as the first cake broke when I took it out of the pan. Huge fail! Two hours later, I pulled the second cake out of the pan and it looked great. I did a little more shopping and returned to my cake that evening to decorate. It took about 2 1/2 hours to decorate but I was pretty happy with the results.
Steph which made it that much easier. She did a great write up of our run, so I highly recommend reading it, here. I love running with friends as the miles seem to fly by. I already have someone lined up for next week's 21 miler, woohoo!
After our run, I headed home to get ready for lunch. Gabbie chose to go to Texas Roadhouse, not because she loves steak, but she loves how she gets to sit on a saddle when they sing happy birthday to her.
After lunch we went home for cake and presents. We let Gabbie choose between a birthday party with friends from school or an American Girl doll as her gift. Because of this we had a small get together and it seemed perfect. My parents were in town, my sister and her family were there, and my mother-in-law came over. There were more than enough presents and cake and my little peanut had a blast.
