Emma was having major birthday jealousy issues that day, so she got to keep one cupcake to eat after lunch. This is a picture of her being "done" with her cupcake. She eats the frosting off the top and throws the cake away.

Here's Hannah with the finished Barbie cake. This is actually one of the easier birthday cakes I've made. Easier than the princess castle cake Hannah's wanted for her birthday for the past 3 years. Hopefully she'll want this cake for a few years to come.
We made this sign to go on our front door. Hannah liked it so much so we decided to take a picture for posterity.
I have to explain this picture. I think Hannah's noticed that people do "bunny ears" or "peace signs" for pictures. I noticed that many of her friends did that in our party pictures. However, I don't think Hannah knows that these signs are typically done with just two fingers. She's flashing three fingers here. Maybe she thought, "if two is good, three must be better!"

According to Hannah, her birthday party was lots of fun. We made princess crowns, and played a number of games. Ryan did a great job of planning fun games that the girls loved. Their favorite was the most simple: the princess and the witch. For this game, the girls sat on the floor in a circle. One person was given a small ball - this ball represents the princess. Another person is given a larger ball representing the witch. The girls have to pass the balls around the circle with the witch trying to "chase" the princess. The girls try to keep the princess from the witch and keep the witch chasing the princess. The witch can change directions too. Anyway, judging by the amount of squealing and screaming, it was a hit.
Between my birthday, Hannah's birthday, and Easter it was a busy week. We had a pretty low-key Easter because we were all so tired. Now, we're on baby countdown. Just over 3 weeks to go!
