The Forgotten Birthday Post

It wasn't a huge to-do, but we did a swim party at True Blue Watersports (indoor pool). Gianna's always wanted a pool party but I refuse to have it at my parents house -- too much stress.

My sweet friend, Deborah, made her this mermaid tail. Can you believe how precious!?

I missed a few late-comers, but I'm glad I got shots of most of the kids. 

Gianna asked for a layer cake for her birthday, so I did a trial run the week before.  Good think because the cake flopped.  I squished it in a bowl and froze it so I could still practice my icing technique.  It was so good.  I'm making bowl cakes more often!
The actual cake (which I ended up not bringing to the party) was four layers high. It was so good!
I need a little more practice, but it turned out to be really pretty.

 On her actual birthday, I took her for breakfast at McDonald's.

I took her to get a mani-pedi because I had an unused gift card.  She had a ball.

I'm NEVER doing that again.  She went swimming that afternoon and most of the polish came off.  What a waste. I learned my lesson.

Her nanny took her shopping for a maxidress that she's wanted for so long.

That's one lucky little six year old.
