Today my baby turned into a teenager, 13, it went so fast…….
We have a tradition in our home called the rainbow cake. This started when I was a little girl. My Mom made cupcakes for my birthday to take to school, she tinted the frosting, and toward the end of frosting, decided to add a little of each color to the top, hence, rainbow cupcakes were born, and then I turned it into a rainbow cake.
My OD is 27, next daughter is 24, YD now 13, countless cupcakes to school, PTO events, bake sales, and to my three nieces who the oldest is now 15, let’s see, I have made how many? I will let you do the math. I will say this is the first one in all those years that has a new color. YD loves purple, so instead of blue she got purple. NOW this NOT a pretty cake, but it is white with REAL butter cream frosting. One piece could put you in a sugar coma. However, no birthday in our home goes without one. Here you go…
So today, her locker was decorated at school, when I picked her up we went to her Aunt Patti’s (godmother). After that, home, a little homework, Chinese Takeout, and then presents!
Then off to finish homework and on to basketball practice.
As she is now a teenager and a very responsible young lady, she got a phone for her 13th Birthday.
Happy Birthday Honey, Love Mom and Dad
