sweet six

The "teen" part will be coming after that six soon enough! For now, we're still doing the princess parties. This year our girly Galla wanted a "Beauty and the Beast" theme.
I made each of the girls their own necklace with their name on it and a little red crystal to represent the rose.

And of course a red rose cake! I was a little nervous to make it, but it turned out pretty well and was actually easier than I expected.
Brad tried his hand at cake making last weekend when we went down to Turlock to spend time with grandparents and Ryan, Steph, Conner, and Addi.
His cake also turned out good...if your definition of good is that it made the birthday girl happy!
We had fun hanging with the fam and it was so good to see everybody!!

I can't believe my baby girl is six! I'm so proud of our Galla. She is really becoming a lovely little lady. She has learned so much at kindergarten this year and is reading and writing like a champ. I volunteered in her class on her birthday so I got to be there when she handed out the cupcakes we brought. She was so gracious as she gave them to each friend and when the friend would say thank you and happy birthday she was putting her little hand on her chest and saying thank you and even doing a little curtsy-type move! She is kind and sweet and also playful and spunky! Galla is very smart and observant and does not miss a thing. She is totally organized and loves to decorate. I love holding her hand because it is so soft and dainty. I'm so happy that I get to be her mama and look forward to continuing to watch her grow. We love you Gal-friend!

The contrast between the cakes! That was so way funny! The Rose Cake. A big Mimi WOW POW! So amazing. And Galla loved both of them ... and both made with a whole lot of love! Looked like a whole lot of fun at Mammaws house with the Lego's and trains too.
Love your blogs! Thanks
