Gracie just about lassoed up about too much fun on her birthday! She ended up with a headache from all the excitement and activity. She did get pretty good with a lasso though! She chose to go to Peter Piper Pizza for her special lunch (her siblings came too of course)-and after an hour or so of games, bumper cars, and fun - they all went to see the new Chipmunks movie. She had such a great birthday!
Cupcakes! Cupcakes and more brownies! Gracie, the pastry chef, wanted two types of cupcakes AND brownies for her birthday. We had a bad case of sugar overload! The cupcakes she did herself with the new cookie cutters her cousin Joe gave her for Christmas - we have had SO much fun with the alphabet letters. She used different colored sprinkles, and sugars and icing to make a neat letter "G" on each cupcake.
Now these pictures do not do my horses justice - they were WAY cool. They just took me so long I didn't have time to get a good picture of them!
We pasted 2 wafer cookies together and stuck them down in the cupcake, the tail is part of a twisted pretzel covered in icing. Okay -Yes, I did ask Daniel to carefully gnaw the pretzels into a nice "C" shape. Well, you can't cut them - they break! I didn't let anyone actually eat them after he had his mouth on them! The heads were more wafer cookies (I wanted those peanut looking candies, but those apparently don't exist anymore). I used to love to decorate cakes, but I don't seem to have the patience for it lately! Could be birthday overload - or the fact that the last birthday cake is still half eaten in the frig from 10 days ago.
