We had decided to have Caitlin's birthday party a little early for Jon's family.
We chose supper time and took her out to the Olive Garden. It's so nice when they can't talk yet and you get to chose for them. Dominic was sure she'd said Taco Bell. The rest of us were sure it was Olive Garden. =)
After we ate, we came back to the house for the cake. Now before you see the pictures I'll tell you that this is the ugliest cake I've EVER made. I didn't have a creative bone in my body that day. I hope she never compares it to Dominic's 3rd birthday. His wasn't a masterpiece, but it was creative and showed some thought. =)
I made the cake on Sunday morning and had so much help. I gave the cake a crumb coating and was trying to ice it when Caitlin started dumping pink and purple sprinkles on it. She had tons of fun and I guess that is what really counts.
Some cupcakes I made for the people who think that frosting is why you eat cake.
The head lamp that Dominic is wearing was given to him by his Gramps. He wears it everywhere - restaurants, gymnastics, grocery store. It's humbling. =)
I don't think she had a clue what the occasion was. But she knew it was cake. And that's enough to get excited about.
Caitlin can't blow very well so she had a little help from Daddy.
One of her presents.
Happy Early Birthday little girl!
