Fiona's 5th Birthday
Five years ago, our lives changed forever with the birth our daughter, Fiona Skye. Fiona makes our world an interesting place and we are so blessed to have this child apart of our family. She is a singer, a trail runner, a swimmer, an artist, an experienced actress, a learner, an explorer, and most of all a child of God.
As I prepared our house today for her birthday, I couldn't help but smile as she insisted we make a cake for her "family" party. As I tried to explain to our lady of 5 year old wisdom that making a cake in a 80 degree house is not a great a idea...I threw caution to the wind.
If my girl wants to make her cake instead of going to a big box store for a prefab cake I applaud her efforts. Yippee! She is definitely following in our thrifty and simple style EVEN if it is too hot to cook in our house through the eyes of an adult.
So, now I must return to our cake decorating efforts in the now 82 degree house. I'm just praying the icing doesn't slide off the cake. Regardless, I'm sure she'll be proud and happy with her home-made cake. Ah...make that 83 degrees. Is being 5 years old fun?
