Happy Birthday Sierra!

My BIG Bear! :)

She is TEN!

Her party was last weekend and it involved nine of her friends from school. They watched a movie, ate popcorn, and then we had some lunch. I took the easy way out and just had pizza delivered; however that required a German phone call so it wasn't exactly that easy. Of course before I made the phone call I asked the girls who spoke German and had one of them standing by in case I needed them to translate my order. :)

After lunch we dipped things in chocolate and covered them with sprinkles. Pretzels, Marshmallows, Gummy Bears, Cookies... those eventually gave way to filling spoons with chocolate and making "chocolate suckers"... and ended with just eating the chocolate right out of the pot. It was a giant mess, but was accompanied by lots of giggling so I think it was fun. I sent everyone home with a box (or two) of "things covered in chocolate".

I was a little scared of this party because I didn't know any of the friends and didn't know any of the parents... Plus older kids are kinda scary. :) It was good to get to meet her friends and get to hang out with them a little bit more.

I was surprised to see that some of her friends arrived in "party dresses". I guess it's fun to have somewhere to wear all these "fancy" dresses the girls like to wear... it was just surprising, that's all. :)

Making her cake was a mini-fiasco... I had envisioned something completely different, but the cakes never turn out how I imagine them. Yes, I did plan to lopsided tiers. :) My problem was that I tried to look into the correct way to do it instead of just making it up myself. I tried to cut it "correctly" and it ended up being a pile of crumbs, with cookies and wafers shoved in it to keep it's shape.

Then I tried to hide all the fiasco-y mess with frosting the end I made three batches of frosting so that means three pounds of powdered sugar was involved in making this cake. :)

Good save! In the end the cake looked fantastic!!! Like something from Alice in Wonderland! Love it!
The girls look really nice and I am sure they had a great time together. I agree with you that it is nice to see the childrens friends and I realize I wont do that as much here. The go by bus and the school days are way longer so there is no time for playing after school. I will miss that!
Like the new look of your blog a lot!!!!
