Every time we asked her what she wanted for her birthday, her answers never changed. There were three simple things that she continued to request. One of her requests were fulfilled on her birthday adventure on Saturday (will probably share tomorrow), but the last two were done on her actual birthday. The two simple requests were... sushi and a camera.
Thus, on her actual birthday we had just a simple celebration with the foods she loves most, sushi included of course, and a happy little dinner with just the five of us. The birthday princess was absolutely elated and proud to finally have turned four!
I totally wanted a cake that looked like this, but my own version with drippy frosting will have to do. I think the dairy-free butter I used was too watery as the frosting did not want to stay up. I was bit bummed it didn't come out the way I liked, but I guess that means I have to give it another try sometime! Oh well. Any resident bakers have any suggestions?
Also, I made little mini cake stands inspired by Danni's and these. I wanted to have all her goodies prettily displayed.
Happy as a clam, she kept exclaiming, "It's my birthday! I'm four! I'm four!"
Right before the birthday cake, she got her last little wish... her very own digital camera. Then, we were singing happy birthday, she got all little photog on us as was documenting each little thing and moment. It was almost if she was going to be blogging all about it herself! A little blogger in the making? Maybe so.
Her camera is now attached to her hip and me thinks that her birthday was absolutely perfect for her. We didn't have a big party, less stress, and just everything that she wanted. All was perfection! Of course, with that, the grandparents did contest the lack of a party, so I told my mom she could make True a small birthday dinner, so that is what we did on Sunday night. Though, my mom's idea of simple is very different from mine, nonetheless True felt the happy birthday love from her grammie and grumpy. Hopefully tomorrow I will share what her other request was and how that led to her Saturday birthday adventure...
