Kara recieved a princess cupcake kit from her aunt Nancy for her birthday. Since then we've been busy, or out of town, or just had too many other treats around. But last week, I decided it was time to let her make them. The girls decided to have a princess party, and make the cupcakes at the end. So we all dressed up in dresses and jewelry. (notice the gorgeous necklace Kara made for me :)) They had me in a skirt, but I took that off for baking. It was pretty fun.
making the cupcakes.
They are always impatient when we have something baking. I had to put the cupcakes in the freezer to cool them faster, because they were so ready to get to the decorating. I know if they'd had more time to cool, they would have looked better. But oh well, they were gone after 2 days anyway.
they each had a little pastiage circle with a picture to paint. The edible water color was included with paint brushes. Kara got a little frustrated that she couldn't stay inside the lines with the brush. Kiersten was just worried about finishing her cupcakes first, and she had no reason to worry. She was done with all of hers before Kara was satisfied with her first one.
They loved the little pink crown wrappers around the cupcakes. Kara was reluctant to throw them away when she ate them. I was letting her save one for her scrapbook, but she left it down and Evie got ahold of it, so that was the end of it.
a closer view. can you see a difference between Kara's and Kiersten's?
The proud artiste. She loves watching cake decorating shows on tv and often tells us she wants to be a cake decorater.
Kiersten was pretty proud of her cupcakes, but mistakenly thought that she had free license to eat all of the ones she painted.
Princess Evie just got to sit in the high chair, snacking on a wagon wheel.
On sunday, I took the girls outside to ride their bikes. Kara fell down, and Kiersten decided it was too dangerous outside. So she brought her bike in the house. Evie was thrilled to see her riding it around.

my little beauty. It's fun to see her personality develpoing so much lately. She sure is a handful though.
Kiersten did end up coming back out to ride with kara. They have so much fun riding around together, but they hate that I wont let them ride in the street, or even go around the block unless I'm following behind them. I guess I'm just the worrying kind of mom.
that's all for now, as I have TONS to do before flying out to Utah with the girls soon. Hopefully Daddy can find something fun to do while we're gone. These 3 little girls are usually the focus around here.
