skating party extravaganza!!!!!!

We had a major birthday celebration at the skating rink! This was the long awaited "friend" party, and it was extra fun as we decided to make it a three-way party since two of her good friends have birthdays around the same time. Kathrynn was SOOO excited...... we made the cake a day early...... and it was so much fun and wonderful to see how she decorated it.

Kathrynn requested a vanilla cake with vanilla icing and then colored icing for whatever she decided to do! Here is the set up......

At her request, I helped with the rainbow.

She did the rest!!!!!

Including picking out candles and placing them on the cake. Look closely and notice the little flipflop candles.... so cute!!! :)
Here she is right before leaving for the party....... just eating some last second food for some skating energy!!!!!

Skating Joy!
Kathrynn was most comfortable skating with Wes or myself, but she did do some solo venturing!!!

Kathrynn and Cora started a trend of pulling the adults in their stocking feet.... by the end of the party there were loads of kids pulling their folks around on their skates. So fun!!!!

Oh the limbo, the limbo!!!!
Here is both of us going under the limbo stick, but by the end of it, she was going under solo ;)

Three birthday girls=three birthday cakes!!! WOOT!!! :P

Kathrynn must be trying to get the whole piece in her mouth.......

And she succeeded!!!!!! JUST KIDDING, but looks like it by the size of that cheek!
Wes and I love giving crazy poses for the camera. Here is mine for the day!!!! :D

PHEW! Her party was 100% success. She was SOOO happy about every moment, which meant I was happy about every moment. ;) :) :) :)
Happy 6th birthday, Kathrynn!!!!


  1. It was a great party! We had a lot of fun. I loved watching all the kids skate, dance, and limbo!

  2. Uh oh, did my comment disappear or is it just waiting approval?

    well, if it disappeared, I just wanted to say how I think K did a fab job on cake decorating and how much fun roller skating looked!

  3. I stumbled here accidentally from reading another blog , and saw your cake. That is definitely the best cake decorating I've ever seen.
    My daughter will be 7 in May, and she loves art so much that I believe I'm going to steal your craft idea :).
    Thanks for posting that!
