Happy Birthday to Sugarwings!


The two of them together is just a cuteness overload! Good job on the healthy cake. Maybe the insides balanced out all that sugary goodness on top.


So much cuteness, Sugar sweet thanks for sharing. Sure looks like the girls had so much fun!
Hugs, Diane

You made some gorgeous photos of the birthday! All keepers or should I say framers?! Thanks for sharing!


Sweet Karla! Love the black and white photo with colored balloon. very Oz. When my Baby was SugarWings age, she was obsessed with MGM musicals...knew all the dialogue and lyrics to ShowBoat, Kiss Me Kate, Oklahoma, and of course, the Wizard of Oz (not MGM, though, I think?) Anyway, You have inspired me to put a bit of yellow brick road into my garden, leading back to the Secret Shade Garden behind the garage, with child size doorway and heaven knows what else, it is a work in planning. What fun! Your Friend Bobbi.


I enjoy your blog very much Karla...thanks for letting us glimpse into your life. Happy b-day sugarwings.

Aw! That is the sweetest thing! Waldorf School is the perfect match for her, Karla. I have a little "Sugarwings" who is twenty-nine and we strongly considered it for her. She has struggled to find a way to match her creativity with...a payong JOB! Majored in Drama and Film Studies. Worked fancy clothes retail. Then did a semester of Costume Design. Didn't want to sew forever. Then wanted to do Art Therapy. We told our little KittyKat" that she would have to pay for all the prerequisites...and she did. Now she is getting her Masters in Clinical Social Work with a certificate in Expressive Therapies. Finally! It only took twelve years! But...back to the topic. I think Sugarwings will just THRIVE at Waldorf School (and I was a school psych so I have a strong opinion about things like that!)


This was delightful. Simply delightful! I actually thought the too-sugared birthday cake looked kinda good!! Love these pics, too. One question. Why have you not purchased yourself Photoshop? I am addicted to it. I started with PS Elements and to be honest it's pretty much what I still use most the time. You would loooooove it!! - Kathy in Chicago happy to help you spend your money ;o)


My stars Karla what a wonderful birthday party your lil sugarwings had and that she has such a sweet lil cousin to share it with. I almost want a grandbaby of my own to try all these wonderful things with but being that my eldest just turned 18, I think I will wait for just a tad longer :) but I did want to say that, the first picture where she is walking on the yellow brick road and looking towards the camera...my stars, she looks stunning...she could be a lil model. Both lil girls are delish though, makes me want another one...no wonder my Mr wonderful had no complaints when I bought that big old baby doll today, I think he figured it was easier than the real thing:) Rose

I think Sugarwings took a stretch. She looks taller to me. Could it be her birthday made her prettier? Give her a kiss for me. Martha

So much sweetness!! And I don't mean the cake decorating. :) That picture of Pixie Pie with the big smile is so cute - she looks like she's about to burst from happiness!!!





What a great party you all had! The "cakes" were wonderful and I loved the pictures of the girls on the yellow brick road. WE ALL know all roads lead to Kansas! Loved looking a the joy and wonder on their little faces! All the green is so beautiful, too. As grandmothers go you're one of the bestest!!

Karla, I am so impressed with your Grammying skills! I do my best to be a great one also to my two little kidlets, ages 9 and 4. It goes so fast!!! Love the trail and all you do to make it so endearing.


She is just divine and so sweet with her little cousin! I can just see wings on the back of them! Good choice of school for her, she will just thrive! Rachaelxo


Pixie Pie sure looks pleased with her sugary creation! And, as always, Sugar Wings is the cutest fairy of all!
