I've always loved cake, but since I was a kid, I was the one who scraped off most of the icing before digging in. My daughter does not share this trait with me. Here are some photos from Ella's cake decorating extravaganza and Birthfest 2011 Celebration No. 2 with our family.
Michael supervised all of the icing proceedings with care.
Ella chose Taco Mac (shocker) for her birthday lunch. Looks like Henry and Gigi were having quite a serious talk.
Katie needed a rest - in one of her new outfits, of course - after such a busy day.
Celebration No. 3 is scheduled for Wednesday. Hopefully this time we'll remember to put a candle in the cake and let Ella make a wish.
