Her birthday went off without a hitch. We always let our children pick what they want for dinner on their birthdays, so of course, we asked L what she wanted. She matter of factly stated hotdogs and chicken and that is all. So, we had hotdogs and chicken and that was ALL.
She is not quite old enough to ask for a store bought cake. I still make her cakes. She wanted purple frosting, chocolate cake, scooby doo decorations and a candle. That was it! Well.....I did all that except the scooby doo decorations for the cake. I hunted high and low for them, but no store had them. The one store I thought would have them, Party City, didn't! I was so disappointed. Anyway, I asked her what else she would like and she said princess. So off to get Princess I went and found them. Surprise, surprise. Her cake was nothing fancy, but it was exactly the way SHE wanted it.

We usually don't go over board on gifts, but they usually get what they want. L got what she wanted and was all smile.
After this picture, she wanted the bed topper on her bed. So off we went and the following was the result.
INSTANT PRINCESS BED!
