The Girl is 6

Today, my darling girl is 6 years young.  She's growing up to be one feisty, smart, creative, assertive, talkative, and independent little lady.  And this one got all her wishes (wants) for her birthday.

Our celebration began with a family lunch last Sunday, together with cousins and grannies.

Hot pot lunch at Gloria Maris

This afternoon, we threw a simple snack party with her classmates which we planned together since November of last year.  That's how long she's been looking forward to this day!

Here's a photo essay of the girl's birthday celebration.  Hope you like them as much as I enjoyed capturing the moments for posterity. =)
M is counting the cute chevron-print paper bags I labeled if all her classmates are accounted for

Twirling endlessly in her new Dizzy Dress

Just like last year, Rainbow cupcakes for everybody... Lemon Meringue cupcakes for her treachers 

Dinner was spent here at home, crispy chicken as requested, with a special ice cream cake and lots of macarons.


Assorted macarons ordered from Alchemy and BelleFleur

Caramia's divine Di Lusso ice cream cake - with layers of
chocolate, pistachio, and strawberry gelato enrobed in chocolate ganache

One of her birthday gifts - Stella from Winx Club, sat on the ice cream cake (with a macaron as cushion!) as the perfect topper.

Happy Birthday M!
We love you very much!

I'll be sharing all the details from our class party project next week -- watch out for Fun Friday!
