Cupcake's Party


Well... I wasn't totally honest with you on my last post. I was not recovering from the flu on Cupcake's birthday. I had felt pretty good the day before, but on her birthday, I was dragging around like death-warmed-over. It was all I could do to decorate her cake. I was wishing I hadn't told her about the princess cake. I would've liked to slap some frosting on a 9x13 cake, stick some candles in, and call it a party. But the show must go on...


Here is Cupcake with the masterpiece (not).

It was a good party... and now I am honestly recovering. Unfortunately, Daddy has it (the flu) now. Cupcake and Sugar are the only two that have been spared (so far).

I am hoping to start blogging about some of the harder parts of adopting an older child, but haven't found the time or words just yet. I want to protect Cupcake, but I have always been transparent and honest with my life. I need to find the right balance before I share with the world...

Blessings to you,
Mamita

It looks like you all had a good time despite the illness. She is a beautiful princess.

Cupcake's face is so calm and relax. Her aura shows that she is happy and i guess, she gained some weight too. Get well soon to Daddy, he can't afford to get sick on his birthday...
