The countdown began. It was Saturday morning and Emily's party was to be held Sunday afternoon. Lot's to do! But most important: the cake. Last year, we studied Astronomy as our homeschool science curriculum and Emily noticed that the biggest meteor shower of the year, the Perseids, had its peak day on her birthday. So, she decided she wanted a star theme for her 10th birthday and planned everything around that. While, the Perseids meteor shower was a let down for us. her birthday celebration was not.
The frosting was dyed blue (for the sky) and lots of fun star sprinkles and candles were added for decoration. Again, David and Lia are very interested in this process.
I also noticed Lia has been making big funny eyes when I take her picture, so here are both my girls doing their silly big eye routine.
And the final product. Chris wrote EMILY and added the big exclamation point and underlining. He was having so much fun I wondered if he might like to decorate his own birthday cake next year.
