Happy (early) Birthday to my sweet little girl!

Today was Veronica's birthday party. It was perfect! Small, quiet, and simple. Just the way I wanted it to be. Roni STILL isn't feeling like herself though, so she was a bit fussy. Or it could have been she's not used to being the center of attention! She had a great time playing outside after the cake and presents were done. Now I am just waiting to hear "I wasn't invited!" through the grapevine. Well, I think it's no secret Veronica did not handle crowds well for a long time. Although she is pretty much over that, I saw no point in having a noisy house full of people and older kids she didn't know well. Plus, with us being so sick in the past week, it really was not in our best interest to plan a huge party anyway.

More pics to come later... but for now:

And I know y'all are wondering about the cake. It didn't come out exactly as I had hoped. Top layer was strawberry. Bottom was Caramel Pecan (yes it was good, Opal!)

    I missed a good party (and a great cake) ..... I'm so disappointed I missed the party! Roni was soooo adorable!!!

    Tell my baby doll that Nanny has a big ole gift for her!

  2. That is a GORGEOUS cake!!! I wish my cakes would come out looking, well like cakes (they aren't pretty trust me LoL).
    Hope Roni had a happy birthday and gets back to normal soon =)

    I felt the same way about Spencer's party. I couldn't invite everyone that we would had normally invited due to the way I had been feeling. I had to keep it simple and easy for me. What matters is that your family and the birthday girl had a great time!! Your cake came out good!
