Not possible. She was born in 2004 though...I know because I was there. But she is still not ten, nope nope nope. However, we did throw her a birthday party.
She is so silly. I wonder where she gets that from?
She requested an ice cream sandwich cake for her party, so this year I tried this recipe (only with neopolitan sandwiches and fresh whipped cream instead of Cool Whip). And Great Scott, is it SWEEET. A little goes a very long way. I actually sprinkled a little salt on my slice and that helped (OK, it was my second late-night-nobody-else-up piece). It sure slices up pretty though.
Here's the traditional momma-made skirt and store-bought tank outfit. She loves it! Yay. The skirt is another Flirting The Issue skirt, which is a great free pattern from AMH. You have to read the bit about a young Anna wearing a skirt around her neck and trying to get away with it. Very funny.
The more I sew channel elastic the better I like it than shirring. It's less scary/iffy to me. I made a couple minor mods in the pattern for my birfday girl:
1) I used three channels of elastic instead of four
2) I made the rectangles of fabric a few inches wider than the formula because she likes volume (so do I)
Isn't this pretty fabric? Perfect for a summertime skirt. It ain't cheap, but was on sale 40% off at Joann and also got my 15% teacher discount, ka-ching! (It applies to home school teachers too, so get your card!)
Anna's pattern is nice because it has a built-in lining, and this fabric needed a lining anyway. I just used some white muslin I had in the stash.
And the traditional mixtape. They both look forward to their birthday mixtapes every year, so I enjoy doing it, even if I was up until one a.m. putting it together the night before. I think it's a tolerable mix of sugary MLP/Disney songs, songs from my youth and newish alternative rock songs that were chosen more for their infectious beats and melodies than for the themes.
But as I think of it, they do match her dramanality quite a bit.
