A Pinkalicious Day! ~ Wordful Wednesday

"Mommy, when you are home to work will you bring pinks for making cupcake stuffs. And make sure you bring da cherries for the tops."

How can a mommy resist such a request? Especially when it comes from a freckle faced cutie like this.





Here is the book that started it all.
Written by Victoria Kann and illustrated by Elizabeth Kann.





Pink-aboo!




So for no particular reason at all we set out to make today pinkalicious.

Eden played the part of Pinkerbelle. LOL!


Vanilla icing, vanilla cake, a few drops of red food dye and pink sprinkles... TAH DAH!




Is that Pinkerella?



Today was pool day at a friends house so we took our pinkcakes to share.




"Am I going to really wake up pink Mommy?"
(that is what happens to the main character in the book)


I smirked and answered, "Perhaps, after all, you
did eat A LOT of pinkalicious pinkcakes."

Eden, now wide eyed, "Cool."

Well, I thought to myself, it
could happen. I DID forget sunblock on their arms. :-/ Please no lectures. I remembered everywhere else and the pool was in the shade :-)





Thus ends this pinkorama.

Pink-perfect! From one "golden pink" lover to another . . . tell Miss Eden I am all in favor of waking up "Pink" and loving every minute of it!

I miss you and those adorable kiddoes. [Makes mental note to get a play-date arranged . . . ]

That hair--oh my word! The curls!

We just went to a purple birthday party on Sunday. I have never seen so much purple in my life in one place before. We even had to wear purple and my daughter won a basket filled with purple stuff. Fun!

Those cupcakes look yummy with the cherries on top!
