Catherine has also been talking about a chocolate cake with pink icing for weeks, so we set out to make one this afternoon.
Here was the result! Not bad for a nearly five-year-old "helping", I think. Each girl got five candles.
Catherine loved her new stick horse that she's been asking for. I think she named it Prince. Or Princess. I guess she's not quite clear on its gender.
Grandma also sent kids' paddles for the kayaks, which we had been looking for for a long time. Perfect!!
Elisabeth got a new Princess backpack that she absolutely loved and started wearing around the house. Catherine got an Ariel backpack that she loved too, but was not quite as obsessed with it.
A very happy day! My little girls are growing up so fast!
They're still teensy tiny girls, though! We did weights and measures today:
Catherine: 35 pounds (16th percentile), 40 inches tall (8th percentile).
Elisabeth: 32 pounds (4th percentile), 38 inches tall (3rd percentile).
Yes, they're small but mighty! Healthy and lively and growing and catching up fast all the time!
