We were the closest family possible. Our world was turned upside down on 05/03/09 when my best friend, the person I love most next only to our children, my sister Trina was diagnosed with stage IV breast cancer. Her body gave out on her on 01/09/10 but she will ALWAYS be a part of our daily life and will continue to be in my posts. I started my blog to chronicle our daughter's international adoption from Guatemala and have continued to use it as a journal.

What you will find is my family trying to adapt to our new lives that were handed to us.

Rainbow Dash Birthday Bash

 Valentina's 6th birthday party was about a month ago. As I had lamented before, Valentina wanted a My Little Pony theme with a strong emphasis on Rainbow Dash.

I made the rainbow poufs and banner:

I scoured Pinterest for rainbow theme ideas and I loved the idea of layering candy. I did tweak it a bit and maybe the martini glasses weren't age appropriate but I liked them.

The entire reason for the party :)

Normally I do a full lunch/dinner for the kids' birthday parties but I wanted to keep it simple this time.

Rainbow fruit skewers. 

Standard veggie tray. 

White cake with rainbow candles. Now you might be thinking "What the what? It's a rainbow party but it's just a white cake????"


Oh no, no, no, no. I labored the night before in making a six layer rainbow cake. Again, Valentina picked it out and had her heart set on this. The outside was supposed to be rainbow colored too but I almost left it like this after I had the layers stacked. 

After getting the cake halfway frosted I decided that I liked it just white on the outside. I thought it would be a great surprise to cut into this stark white cake and reveal a rainbow bonanza.

The birthday girl in her unicorn shirt from Beya. You can't quite see that she is also in a purple tutu that Amanda gave her last year for her birthday. She looked like a perfect little birthday girl.
