What do these things have in common, you ask? Cupcake by Kooky Culinary Give up yet??????
Answer: My recent conversation with Grace!
Goes like this:
Mama: "Grace, you're going to be 2 really, really soon! What kind of birthday party do you want to have, pumpkin?"
Grace: "Old McDonald Elmo birthday party with pumpkins!!!!!!!!!!!"
Mama: "Okie dokie, pumpkin, your birthday is in March, how about 2 out of 3?"
So knowing how much Grace loves animals we were able to scope out a local farm that could accomodate our birthday request. We went out to check it out a couple of weeks back and Grace got SO excited - she talked about it for days, "And there was a duck, and a pig, and a joey (yes, they even have a baby kangaroo!), and an ELEPHANT!! (not sure where this came from - no elephant, although they do have a zebra and a camel???)". They even have a cow print mini choo-choo for the kids to take a little ride through the farm and will let the kids feed and pet some of the baby animals - can't wait to see Grace's reaction!
So there it is, we're having an Old McDonald Barnyard Bash Birthday Party (and I'm sure we can squeeze in some cupcakes of her beloved furry red friend somewhere in there :)!
