AND - we had Kylie's birthday party today!
It went absolutely superbly well and the girls had a lot of fun! I AM SOOOOO GRATEFUL!!!
And thanks to an amazing husband and older children, we were able to pull it off. THANKS GUYS - YOU're the BEST!!!
Leilani made a Barbie-cake for Kylie.
Since we couldn't put candles on that one, I prepared a half an orange with 6 candles in it so that we could sing the HAPPY BIRTHDAY song and she could blow out her candles.
I had everybody close their eyes while we sang the song and brought "the cake" right in front of Kylie. When the song was finished, everybody could open their eyes - and what did they see???
The expression on their faces was priceless - - - an orange??? No cake???!!!
And then, Leilani came down the stairs with the "real deal" - the day was saved - hihi!
