On Saturday, 02/19/2011, at 3:45am my little girl turned 11. ELEVEN! I can't believe how quickly time has flown by. It seems like only yesterday I was cuddling with Hope like I cuddle with Atticus.
To celebrate, Hope decided to have a rainbow themed sleepover. Hope spent the morning on the front porch with her little brother making paper garlands out of construction paper:
Of course we had to make rainbow cupcakes. We used a white cake mix and then divided the mix into several different bowls. Next we added gel food coloring. The final step was to layer each different color in the cupcake pan. I used pale liners so the colors would show well:
Next, vanilla frosting mixed with blue food coloring:
To top things off, I added marshmallow clouds and rainbow candy!
Hope had a wonderful time with her friends. They giggled well into the night (1am to be exact; Atticus was up for the partying due to teething).
Happy Birthday, Peanut!!!
