She wanted to open presents right away, so we did that early in the day.
The main thing she had asked for was a "real watch with a timer." I did not think finding a kids' watch would be difficult, but it turns out that BD and I had to do a lot of looking to find one that was small enough to fit her but also decent quality! We ended up with a pink Timex IronKids watch, and she loves it.
She also got some new puzzles and books, two new charms for her charm necklace (a sparkly unicorn and a pair of ballet slippers), and a new Playmobil campsite set.
Little sister wasn't thrilled that there were no presents for her.
But sweet MC let her open some presents so she wouldn't be left out.
She requested vanilla cake with vanilla icing and rainbow sprinkle decorations as her birthday cake. I baked the cake the night before, then she helped me make the icing and frost the cake on the morning of her birthday. I am not a huge fan of buttercream icing, so this year I attempted a hybrid whipped cream/cream cheese frosting, and it turned out so good!
She wanted to eat cake when she was "really six" so we ate lunch a little early and had cake just before noon.
Everyone enjoyed her cake!
Later in the day she had Island Princess dance camp, so we made rainbow rice krispy treats to share with her friends at camp.
