Celebrating {six}

On Friday, the not quite as tiny person got even less tiny...she turned six! :) There was a great deal of excitement in our house ~ in fact the first thing I heard that morning (aside from my very rude alarm clock) was the voice of the tinier tiny person saying, "Sister! Sister! Happy birthday, sister!" Pardon me while I {melt} just a little.

The 6-year-old requested princesses on her cake, and my mom and I debated long and hard about how to accomplish that without having to pay someone else to do it. We scoured the toy department and the cake decorating aisles at the store and found {nada} that we felt would get the job done. And then, my mother had a moment of genius. Goodie bags...


The goodie bags we found came in a pack of 8 ~ we simply cut the picture of the princesses off of the front of one of the bags, frosted the whole cake, then placed the picture where we wanted it and piped some frosting around the edge. Obviously, it's not edible, but the birthday girl was {thrilled} with how it turned out, it was super easy and way inexpensive. Sneaky, right?
