I started blogging so that my family could see my children and keep up with as they grow. I love to sew and used to blog about that here on occasion. Now, I blog about my creations at miymdiary.blogspot.com with a friend. Stay here for to read about my family and visit the other blog for more on sewing!

The big 1-0

I'm feeling old right about now.  I can't believe my little girl is turning 10!  Not for a few more days, mind you, but we had her party today.
My friend made her a wonderful cake.  She met with Ashley to get ideas for it.  Then she met with her again- this time bringing a sketch of the cake.  Ashley was thrilled.  The theme?  Why, Percy Jackson of course!  She fell in love with the books this autumn and her obsession has continued to grow and branch out.  She knows almost everything there is to know about Greek mythology (ok, maybe not almost everything, but she does know a lot).  So she decided that she wanted her cake to feature the symbols of the gods.

The PJ stands for Percy Jackson, with lightning bolts around it for Zeus and the first book of the series.  The key is for Hades, the trident for Poseidon.

A dove for Aphrodite.

The bow and arrow for Apollo.

 A snake for Hermes.  The white fabric is representative of their robes.

Ashley absolutely loved her cake!  It was tasty, too.  Thanks, Danan!

  1. I can't believe sweet little Ashley is 10 I just told Ryan that when I read this and he said NO WAY!!! Seems like just yesterday when she would come and sit on Ry's lap during church. Love the cake, what a nice friend.
