A special birthday

Is it seriously the eve of Christmas Eve?!?!? I am as giddy as a child when it comes to Christmas. I love everything about it…the colors, the trees, the lights, the music, the movies, family, food, presents, seeing Santa, shopping…..but most of all, I love celebrating Jesus’ birthday with my family!

Every year, since miss priss’ first Christmas we make a birthday cake for Jesus. My favorite part is going to the store and picking out the flavor, the icing, the decorations…we let miss priss just pick out whatEVER her little heart desires. This year….she had a very interesting collaboration of flavors. Funfetti, blue vanilla icing with a cotton candy flavor add in! I can’t wait to try it!

The cupcake silicone bakeware is from Bed Bath and Beyond. We got it years ago, but I am sure you can still find it there.

After it’s baked and the icing is on…we let Rapunzel loose with the sprinkles. :) It always makes for a very delicious bite!!

If you have been following, you may already know that I am a current lover of stripes, chevron, polka dots, and subway art! To add to my little chevron and subway obsession, I made this for our mantel.

I am off to finish up some wrapping and watch Elf with the Mr. I wish you all a very Merry Christmas and as Mr. Phil would say it…Happy Happy Happy Holidays!

See you in 2013.
