Pyper's TALL Birthday cake

Pyper wanted a "tall cake" for her birthday. I found a fun idea and asked her what she thought. It was awesome! It had 6 layers, and each was a different color of the rainbow. I also used Em's trick with the instant pudding mix in the cake mix, and it was YUMMY! I should have taken a picture after we cut it, but my hands were goopy!

Happy Happy Birthday Pyper!

It's this fun little gal's birthday today.

She's 5.

She makes us all smile.

And she is loads of fun to be around.

She has a sparkly personality, and shoes to match!

(These may very well be my favorite part of her outfit, she said they were "Twinkle Toes".)

Some fun 5 year old facts about Pyper:

~Her favorite color is still purple.

~Fannie the elephant is her best friend.

~Her favorite foods are mac and cheese ("The kind Mom makes, NOT Easy Mac!"), broccoli, cereal, and chocolate.

~She is very caring and loves to give kisses and hugs.

~She has to snuggle when she wakes up in the mornings before she can start her day.

~She knows the value of sleep, and will often sleep in til 10 on Saturdays!

~She loves to cook, pumpkin cookies are her favorite thing to make. We usually end up making them on Fridays when she doesn't have school. We call that day "Stay Home With Mom Day."

Pyper, I love you very much and am so glad you are part of our family. You are my sunshine, you make everyday brighter just by being there! You are the BEST 5 year old ever!
