Avery, my younget daughter, turned 5 this week! How can she be this old already?
We gave her the option to have a friend party or a family party this year. Since I’m nearly 37 weeks pregnant, I was pleased when she decided on a family birthday party. Having 8 people in our family and 2 sets of grandparents living nearby, we’re a big party all by ourselves. Even so, because I’m so far along in my pregnancy, I was not about to attempt to make her cake this year. Being on my feet for any amount of time this late into pregnancy really makes my back ache. Any time I can delegate that work to the store, I’m all for it! (Not to mention, I’m not very good at decorating cakes!)
If you’ve ever ordered a cake from a grocery store or Walmart bakery, you’ve probably already been introduced to Bakery Crafts. They have so many different Cake Kits to choose from! She decided on a Hello Kitty birthday party.
We headed out to our local Walmart Bakery and placed an order for her cake, ready to be picked up on her birthday. While I was there, we added in some cute Hello Kitty birthday plates, a pink tablecloth and some streamers. Nothing says birthday quite like streamers, you know!
On her birthday, I went to pick up the finished cake. It was so easy to just grab and go. I was so impressed with how it looked, too! It was perfect!
I love the vibrant colors I also love the grass. It looks so real! Avery loved that there were rings and a toy that she could play with!
We chose the Marble Cake, so we could get a taste of white cake AND chocolate cake. Sometimes it’s hard to decide, isn’t it? But, MMMM, doesn’t it look good? (Believe me, it was! As my 2 year old said, “It’s delicious!”)
Of course, getting to blow out the candles is half of the fun!
On each child’s birthday, we generally let them take the day off of housework and school (we homeschool). On this particular day, she decided to have her sister dress her like a princess (thus the dress and crown of hearts in the top picture). Of course, getting loved on by your siblings and parents makes the day that much more special!
We are so blessed to have Avery in our lives! I can’t imagine life without her entertaining antics, bossy attitude and loving hugs and laughter.
