A Day Well Spent…Happy Birthday, Katie!

Birthday cake pancakes to start the day!

She was so eager to dig in...

Birthday surprises...

So curious...

The one thing that she asked for...a camera!

Surprise balloons from Daddy...

She said it was the most beautiful cake in the "entire world." (She clearly hasn't seen many cakes!)

All that really mattered was that it was light blue...her favorite color.

It really doesn't take much to make a four year old so completely happy. What an absolutely lovely day we had.

    Are birthday cake pancakes reserved for birthdays only? Because that looks like a winning weekly tradition right there! And I have to agree with Katie, that is the most beautiful cake in the entire world!

    After being sick on her 3rd birthday, I'm so glad that she had such a wonderful 4th Bday. I'll bet she loved that baby blue cake!

    Happy Birthday Katie!

    I have a 4 year old daughter too and I do agree, they are pure magic. I'm glad she had a lovely, lovely day. Happy birthday, Katie.

  6. She is a doll. And pancakes with sprinkles? You totally won at motherhood.

  7. I am hijacking the birthday pancake idea for the kids' birthdays!

    It is lovely when something as simple as surprise balloons and light blue frosting are the magic ingredients of a perfect day!

  13. Happiest of birthdays to Katie and Happy Anniversary of becoming a mother, Nichole.
    BTW, is that a Tiffany Blue blue cake? If so I am SO THERE!

    Cannot wait to see some of her photography!

    Just lovely!! I love her smiles! Happy Birthday to sweet Katie! xoxo

    Please tell me there's no frosting on TOP of the cake because you already licked it off?

    Otherwise, that's a major cake foul.

    Awww . . . What a lovely birthday.

    What a lucky little girl.

  17. Now I am craving sprinkled pancakes! Might need to make them for the kiddos this weekend! We bought Landon the same camera and he loves it. It is really fun to see what they see through their eyes. Happy Birthday to your sweet baby girl!
