Today we prepared for Gloria's party by making her cake and cleaning the house from top to bottom. We've got all the little activities ready and the girls have chosen their princess costumes. Danya will be Snow White, Gloria will be a Chinese princess, and Latte will be Cinderella.
We received a lot of last minute RSVPs today. The phone was ringing off the hook all day long. A few of those calls were from Latte's foster mom and our caseworker. Unfortunately no one has been able to reach Latte's caseworker, "K", so plans are a bit up in the air for her. We did manage to secure permission from K's supervisor to keep Latte overnight tomorrow. So she'll get to come to church with us on Sunday, too!
I think the cake we made is the best we've ever done. We are by no means master chefs, but it was fun trying to be creative in decorating Gloria's cake. It's a lemon cake with lemon icing. Although you can't tell from the picture, it's actually very yellow. I hand drew a crown and cut it out with a craft knife. Then we held the paper with the crown shaped hole over the cake and sprayed it with purple frosting. Finally, we decorated it with pink gel icing which looks like little jewels. Gloria loves it!
