7...Our MyMy

OH HOW THE TIME FLIES! Seems just yesterday I got the call that she needed a foster home. She's already 7!  Today, makes me ponder a lot but mostly the thankfulness I feel deep in my soul for God's Gift of Myah Annmarie as our earthly daughter. The sweet babe born in the back seat of a car to a meth addicted mother. THANK YOU LORD for saving our girl and protecting her life. Gratitude to the LORD for this precious precious girl!

She wanted to make some "Swirly cupcakes". So we did. We divided our cake batter into 4 bowls and made them 4 different colors! Pink, purple, blue and green.

Then we put a bit of each color in the cupcake papers and swirled them around with a toothpick.

Then before we knew it, they were all baked up!

Then we got "ALL FANCIFIED" and made our own homemade butter cream frosting FROM SCRATCH! This was the first time for me. Turned out doggone devine. Blew away that canned junk. How come ya'all never told me to do it this way? I think I gained 4 pounds licking the spoon with this stuff and it wasWAY EASY!

MyMy wanted more than anything for her birth sister to come. That is really all she asked for. Well, her sister got a case of lice from school and wasn't able to make it. Both girls were very sad but THE SHOW MUST GO ON! Luckily, we planned a skating party here at our local rink also. 

Here is the "party table" all set up at the skating rink.


She picked out tubes filled with glowing earrings, necklace and bracelets and we added little tags that said "Thanks for ROLLIN over to my party" Love, Myah


We made the little cupcake toppers!
I even used a bag and one of those fancy tips to put the frosting on. What do you think? I know, I need practice :) but she LOVED THEM!

The sweet Birthday Girl!

Even Lolli fell in love with skating and went around a MILLION times!


Let me introduce you to "THE CUPCAKE STALKER" who was caught putting his finger in more than once..EWWWW!

Living out in the boonies like we do, we don't have a LEGIT skating rink but BOY do the kids love skating on this wooden floor and BOY is it LOUD when they fall, bang bang bang. We attended the beginners skate from 5-7pm along with the rest of the town. I'll bet there wer 70 little ones trying to skate that evening. I rewarded myself with a LARGE dose of ibuprofen when I got home.


MyMy and all her friends. It took her quite a long time to come up with a wish!


The INSIDE of our cupcakes! LOVED THEM!



HAPPY BIRTHDAY to our precious princess!!!

On a side note, MyMy and Bits birthmother JUST got out of prison and we are looking forward to seeing her. She has gained 50 pounds since being clean and off of meth in prison. We are hoping and praying we can see her "CLEAN" for the first time ever very soon!

Happy Birthday to your precious girl! I love the cupcakes ~ they look fabulous. I didn't even know you could get frosting in a can until I saw it on 'everybody loves raymond' a few years ago ~ LOL ~ guess I've been spoilt all my life!
The skating party looks like loads of fun!
Have a wonderful week & enjoy your precious 7 year old!
Blessings

Happy Birthday to your sweet baby girl! I am so currious to know how you went about your kids seeing their birth moms again...we have a sibling group of three that we are waiting on pc to adopt & I am really torn on how to handle the whole situation. I know I want to keep them in touch with other siblings and maybe even mom but how did you know how soon to do that or how to handle it? Any thoughts you could give would be such a blessing to me & the kids!
