my girl is 7!!!!

little L turned 7!!! i can't believe how fast the time flies by. i think she had a great day despite the fact that mommy ruined her cake request. we started the day at the splash pad with friends. she recieved a beautiful handmade pearl necklace and a very sweet card. we celebrated with cupcakes (i really rushed on those and they ended up being way better than the cake i spent 2 days on). then off to her favorite place to eat lunch... the elephant bar. i don't know why she loves this place so much, but this is the 2nd or 3rd year she picked it as the location for her special birthday lunch.
then.... after that.... a special shopping trip with mommy to pick out a special dress. she was really into turquoise this year. finally home to eat, have cake and open presents! whew! what a day!

yikes! don't even think about taking the wax paper off!
oh yeah. a proud moment.
she didn't seem to mind. she was just happy there was a unicorn on it.
sevens were everywhere!!!! happily enjoying the special unicorn pudding cake.

I am glad that I am not the only one who screws up cakes...I bet it still tasted good though!

In the first picture of L she looks a lot like S (big S not little S)...crazy!! She looks super grown up.

Looks like you had a fun day!
