Elizabeth Turns 6

My second born has now reached the ripe old age of 6 years.  Some days this amazes me.  My chubby little baby has grown into a great big kindergartner who loves to run and play.

This year Elizabeth asked for a rainbow cake.  So I made one- complete with Skittles.  After all, you can't taste the rainbow without Skittles. :)

Ryan had to work late, so we hung out and had dinner while we waited for Daddy to come home.  
 Pizza and root beer- a feast worthy of our Elizabeth.  (Don't ask about the root beer bottle on her head.)
 Finally daddy came home, and Elizabeth was so excited to finally open her gifts.  Many of the pictures were blurry until I changed the camera setting to "sports."

Lastly, it was time for Elizabeth's rainbow cake.

Rainbows are delish.

Happy Birthday Elizabeth!

The cake looks great and bet she loved it.........doens't time fly I often think that my baby is now 21yrs old and it seems like only yesterday she was born....

What a beautiful cake! Does that take a ridiculous amount of time doing all the layers??!

Yes, that cake took me a LOOOONNGG time to make. It's a white cake, seperated into 6 (semi) equal amounts, dyed and then painstakingly smoothed into layers in the pans. It's harder than one might think. But Elizabeth loved it. :)
