At the end of last month Mimi turned four. It was a crazy time with Sundance going on and N being out of town for work but we made sure to celebrate and had a birthday dinner for her with N's parents.
I'm not sure where she saw one but when I asked her what cake she wanted Mimi immediately replied, "a rainbow cake!" Since all our birthday cakes need to be vegan because of E's food allergies I ended up using a white cakemix with Vegg egg-replacer and then tinting the batter with food coloring.
Mimi was ecstatic to help shake on the sprinkles and had such a good time that I didn't even mind the almost constant pinging of sprinkles as they hit the kitchen floor and bounced away ;)
She was really, really excited about the cake (And lately the kids have gotten into mugging for the camera, sigh.)
Trendwatch: painting your dining room to match your children's eyes is all the rage for spring!
I'm so grateful to have this little one in our family. She is full of joy and sweetness and sass and her laugh is the best sound in the world.
