Happy birthday to my darling girl

I cannot believe Miss Romily is five! But she is. Such a beautiful, happy, crazy child. I love her to bits.I baked her a cake to celebrate - the Lazy Ladybug from the AWW Bake cookbook. We all sang happy birthday tonight after dinner and she blew out the candle. Here she is with Carl just after we turned the lights back on.And two dozen cupcakes to share with her preschool friends today. Here they are in the Cupcake Courier I bought a while back. How cool is this contraption?! (There's another layer, but I only needed the two today! The lone cupcake without decoration is for one of Rom's friends who apparently doesn't like icing...strange child! LOL)Romily's party is on Saturday, so stand by for more baking and fun photos! I'll also have to post a couple of her riding her new bike - she was so happy to receive her present and said a very genuine thank you. I think at her age I would have been so interested in ripping open my other presents that I wouldn't have even thought to say thank you!

She's such a wonderful kid. Happy birthday my little friend.

Happy Birthday Romilly.

It's been great following your escapades over the last 5 years and I look forward to reading about the next 5 years of fun and games.

Happy Birthday Romily! You lucky girl to have a mom who bakes the most delicious cupcakes and a lazy ladybug. I bet it tasted delicious!

Happy Birthday, Romily! I think five is the best of all possible ages.
And Lily, what a cake!
My birthday is in October - could you make me one, too? And a bunch of cupcakes for all our flash friends? I'll take the extra icing that weird kid doesn't want.

Hope you had a great day Romily - I love that cake Lily - but how's this for odd, in my book it's called Lucy Ladybird - so I made it for Lucy's 1st birthday!!
