It was Rylie's Mimi's birthday this weekend! She's usually out of town every year for it but this year we got to celebrate with her!
Rylie made Mimi a special birthday card
I only helped a little. She was so excited to do this herself & went a little crazy with the glue lol
Writing Mimi a message-really she just wrote all of our names (even Remy's) =)
Then Rylie & I made Mimi a yummy cake! I've rarely let Rylie help me in the kitchen so she was thrilled to do this! And I picked an easy recipe. She first helped by carrying all the ingredients I gave her to the counter.
Then she got to smash the bananas! Her most important job!
Then she helped me pour other ingredients in & even learned to crack an egg! Dont worry, we were careful & no shell got in!
Then she kept an eye on the cakes while I cleaned the kitchen.
Ta-da! Finished card & cake! It's a decadent banana cake with cream cheese frosting & we added walnuts all over the top. It was DEEEEEEE-LICIOUS!!
Mimi also got a new lighthouse for her back patio! Rylie was really excited to give it to her & kinda announced when they arrived she got her a new lighthouse lol We're working on the definition of "surprise" with her! hehe
Hope you had a great birthday weekend, Mimi! Rylie & us were excited to celebrate with you!
