For Lorelei’s birthday we decided to have a Yo Gabba Gabba party since she really likes that show (and so do we). We kept it just us because Jason’s sister was due with her baby right around Lorelei’s birthday and that would have been just too crazy.
In keeping with the colorful theme, I wanted to try out a rainbow cake, but instead of food coloring, using actual food to color the cake. I found a great recipe that explained in depth just how to do that.
Everybody helped, even grandma.
I decided to do cupcakes and they started out very colorful. It was almost like a science experiment getting the cake to change colors.
Unfortunately after it baked the colors were not very bright and the cake itself was not one of my favorites. Next time I might add more coloring (especially the “red”) and choose a yummier cake recipe. We still had a great time!
Lorelei blew out her candle all by herself!
Then, it was present time. She got a pee-wee pillow pet panda, puzzles, clothes, toys, books and a new baby doll.
She immediately pulled it out and started feeding the baby and singing, “twinkle, twinkle little star…” so cute.
We then played stick the eye on Muno. Muno is the red guy, in case you don’t watch Yo Gabba Gabba.
Lorelei totally cheated (I think Nora did too), but it was fun spinning them and we adults got in on the fun too and did terribly. “Celebrating Lorelei’s birthday iiiiiss AWESOME!!”
