Some families celebrate their children’s seventh birthday in a grand manner. I never quite understood why, maybe I probably never will. That’s why, it was as simple as ever in our home when my eldest, Ella, turned seven.
Well, usually we make do with store-bought cakes. But, this time, I wanted to try custom cakes from a local baker. She and I went over the designs I wanted, especially ones that have rainbows and ponies on them.
This was the outcome of the customized pony and rainbow cake made by Jacquelyn of Angel’s Town Cafe.
It was a school day and by way of celebrating there, she gave away chocolate walnut and chocolate chips muffins to her classmates and teachers. I love their muffins!
When she arrived home after dismissal, I went and picked up the cake from the cafe. Back home, we sang the birthday song to her and ate slices of chocolate cake with marshmallow icing and candy-covered chocolates.
She loved the cake, the design and flavor. Another pony toy was added to her collection.
You’re now 7! You are as colorful and amazing as a rainbow. Maintain your bubbly personality, your independence and love for God, us & animals. Keep growing into a compassionate, helpful and kind young lady. I’m wishing that your dreams will come true by learning and working hard. Maybe you’ll be an artist or a scientist someday. Whatever it is you want to be and what God wills for you, your daddy and I will support you. Keep dreaming and imagining!
Lots of love,
Raising her is like having a slice of rainbow, sometimes unexpected yet full of promise.
