Hello Kitty Round 1
Thank you all, for the funny comments on the last Hello Kitty post. You know what - pink is not the end of the world. I mean, it could be worse. Emily could have asked for pet caterpillars. I try to keep my perspective that way. Honestly, though, I'm already having fun preparing for this party. Not only because any birthday party is an excuse to bake and sew but just to watch the light in Emily's eyes when she talks about it, and contributes her ideas, and handmakes her invitations and gets so involved in everything. She asked me today why people celebrate birthdays. To give thanks for another amazing year with that person, honey. Today it rained, so no parks for us. Instead we did a dry run of the cookies, using a new recipe for frosting that hardens but doesn't taste like sweetened cardboard. Meringue powder is genius! Thank you, Meaghan! I've also just sewed 10 Hello Kitties. That sounds funny. And it is. I have learnt this: Hello Kitty has a planetoid of a head.
