Birthday party

Today was Molly's friend birthday party (actual birthday is Monday). She's been so tired from late nights that we decided to skip ballet this morning. She was happy to stay home and get ready for the party instead.

Pink cupcakes. Again.

This time we frosted with whipped chocolate ganache. Molly chose chocolate bars with a hint of orange. YUM!

Birthday girl gets to lick the spoon!
We made Molly keep her invite list short, just cousins and her neighborhood/school bus friends. What a nice group of little kids they were!

They even indulged Molly's cherished idea of dumping a basket of candy on the floor. All the drama of a pinata without the fun, right? Surprisingly nobody cried.

There was some dress-up, some balloon play, some t-shirt signing and of course the cupcakes.

Happy birthday, dear 6-year-old Molly!!!
