Princesses and noodles and chocolate cake. Or, Violet turns 5.
Violet turned five yesterday.
We did not have a big elaborate party. We gave her some presents (including an amazing neighborhood swap page find of a princess dress collection that I got for a total STEAL). And after a dinner ofÂ what Violet callsÂ “favorite chicken” (rotisserie, from the grocery store) and carrots and noodles (natch), we had some cake. She requested chocolate, and so I cranked out a box cake mix with homemade fudgy frosting, complete with sprinkles and hand-piped lettering. Nothing fancy enough to pin, but oh so good.
This little lady. Â So sweet.
Happy birthday, my darling.
We all love you so.
