Happy Birthday Leah!

Today is Leah's 6th birthday!

I stayed up until 12:30 last night preparing for the big day! I made this cake, and I will just say that this is the last birthday cake that I plan on making!
I have made several birthday cakes for the children, and whenever I try one like I did last night, I always regret it. I am just not talented in the cake decorating field! I even called Jimmy's cousin's wife, Holly who lives over 5 hours away for cake decorating advice--over the phone! She is super talented, and I really wished that she could just have just made the cake for me!
Anyway......here is the cake.....

It's supposed to be a Fancy Nancy crown!

I decorated the table Fancy Nancy, complete with sparkly confetti, Fancy Nancy paper goods, beads, sunglasses, play make-up, a Fancy Nancy purse, and of course, a Fancy Nancy doll. Leah was pleasantly surprised when she woke up this morning to the fancy table. She also loved her cake, which she thought was beautiful!

Leah's gifts!

Leah woke up around 8:00 this morning. We began the day by letting her open her gifts. She was so excited. She very nicely let Sam help her open each present. While she played with some of her new toys, I cooked her breakfast request, Sausage and Cheese Muffins.
The rest of the day was spent playing, and then we had a late lunch at The Olive Garden. Yummy! After that we sang Happy Birthday to Leah and enjoyed the delicious cake (it tasted much better than it looked) and ice cream. We ended the afternoon by watching Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs. Our whole family really enjoyed it!

I plan to share photos from our fun day later tonight---today's pictures are on Jimmy's camera...he is at a meeting, and I will have him upload them when he gets home.

Happy Birthday Leah!
