Autumn's 8th Birthday

Autumn put a lot of thought into her birthday cake. Her requests started with
- pink frosting with a white cake
- flamingo on top, white frosting, and a white cake
(I somehow missed that flamingos are now her favorite animal. Now guess her favorite color.)
- flamingo on top, blue frosting (for water), and a white cake

In the end I talked her into doing a coconut cake since white cakes tend to not have a lot of flavor.

Notice the wet hair? She's in her pajamas. Heidi celebrated right after breakfast but Autumn had to wait until right before bedtime. She was mighty patient.

A bundle of energy.
(And I think my expression in the background is because I didn't like the cake. The batter was DELICIOUS but the cake didn't work out the same. Everyone else loved it though...)

Autumn is a joy to have in our family. She is FULL of life, a great big sister and helper to her mom, and so excited in ALL she does!

Happy Birthday Autumn!
We love you!!
