This year, Kaitlyn wanted a chocolate butterfly cake. So I made a 3 layer cake… top and bottom tiers were chocolate. The middle was vanilla- colored blue. It was filled with Marshmallow Fluff and iced with vanilla frosting. So yummy!
Kaitlyn’s teacher does “Star Week” for each of the kids over the week of their birthdays. The star gets to be the helper all week and be line leader. The parents bring in a special treat and share a favorite book with the class. The bulletin board outside the classroom is all about them.

Pillsbury makes these very brightly colored cake mixes and frostings. When Kaitlyn was in the baking aisle with me almost two months ago, she told me that’s what she wanted for her birthday cupcakes this year. So, we made blue cupcakes with purple frosting and purple cupcakes with blue frosting. The blue frosting ones were definitely the most popular with her class!
When I brought in the cupcakes, we brought in one of Kaitlyn’s favorite books… Hamish the Highland Cow which I read to the class. All I can say is God Bless Kindergarten teachers! I was worn out after 30 minutes with 12 kids!
Here’s Kaitlyn in the singing birthday hat, while her class sings Happy Birthday to her.
Tomorrow she is going to the doctor for her 6 year check-up and her flu shot followed by lunch with us before she heads back to school.
