I believe that homemade family parties are the best! The birthday girl (or boy for one day since my husband is the only male in our family) gets to choose what the dinner will be and what kind of cake I make. Today was my daughter's birthday and Kenzie-Lou chose chicken parmesan for her special meal and a red velvet cake for dessert.
I didn't take any photos of the chicken parmesan. It only turned out okay. I was in a rush and kind of got started late because my daughter wanted a multi layered cake. One of the layers broke. C'est la vie. She loved it anyway!
My teenage birthday princess with my niece!
I ran around doing birthday errands all morning and early afternoon with my oldest daughter and two young nieces. Whew - I am so glad I had all of my children really young! I could not do that everyday!
