Q6's birthday

Q6 first picture

Not only was April 15, 2012 Q6's 6th birthday, but it was also the day that the RMS Titanic sank.

I've been asking Q over the last few weeks what she wanted to do for her birthday, and although she first thought birthday party, she ended up deciding she wished to take a friend to the Land of Little Horses in Gettysburg, PA. Here's the real link. We haven't done this yet because it isn't open until May. So ... Land of Little Horses in the future!

Nevertheless, she still had a birthday at home to deal with. Q had cookies at school on Friday (really cute ones! I made big circles on lollipop sticks, frosted them white, and frosted each child's initial on them in the color of the table they were sitting at. They were cute), but she refused a cake on her actual birthday. No cake, no cupcakes, no cookies. Nothing. All she asked for was strawberry ice cream, so I didn't make anything.

On the way to Mt. Vernon with her sister and cousin on her birthday morning, however, she and C7 and K8 were discussing the RMS Titanic, and making an iceberg and a Titanic cake and smashing them into each other.

So ... while I wasn't up to making a Titanic cake at the last minute, we came up with a compromise ... ice cream iceberg and a Titanic cookie -- I had leftover dough from Friday's cookies, so it was easy!

So, we sang Happy Birthday and smashed an unsinkable ship into an iceberg. And then ate it.
