Jordan’s birthday was yesterday, but we celebrated her birthday last weekend. I made her a rainbow cake that she saw in Family Fun magazine a few months ago. She was so thrilled with it, and I was thrilled that it only took a few minutes to make. Much easier than fondant!
Here is a close up of the finished cake. The jellybeans tasted so funny to me, but she liked it. That’s what is important!
The reason why we had Jordan’s birthday party last weekend instead of on her birthday this weekend, is because she rode in her first horse show this past weekend. Check out those pink boots, and the pink bandanna. She also had a pink cowgirl hat, but she had to wear her helmet for riding. She met several new friends at the horse show including another little girl with cerebral palsy. It nearly broke my heart because she was so excited to find another little girl “just like her”. I exchanged numbers with her Mom so that we can get the two of them together in the future.
After everyone finished riding, they had an awards ceremony and Jordan won “Best Equineship” which is about how she “trains” her horse gently and carefully. She was absolutely thrilled. We are all so proud of all of Miss Jordan’s achievements!
After she accepted her award, she went back to our table to celebrate her win by eating petit fours. She might be a cowgirl, but she’s still a girlie girl!
