Great White Birthday Cake

Great White Birthday Cake

Today was Ky’s 9th birthday and of course, the obligatory sleepover/birthday party was the celebration of all celebrations. The “Jaws” themed birthday cake and “Bite Me” cupcakes were a gift from a baker friend, to commemorate Kyla’s love of all things Great White Shark.

The “Bite Me” cupcakes were the big hit of the party – not one single cupcake remains for Momma, dammit!

There is, however, enough Great White Shark left over to get me through the next month.

Ky got a new pet – Steve is a Samurai, or Chinese Fighting Fish. Apparently, he will kill and consume any other fish in his vicinity, so we can’t get him a companion. Putting a mirror next to his bowl pisses him off noticeably, so I think he’s definitely a Loner kinda guy.

I’m not sure why Kyla decided to name him “Tremor Steve”, but I think it’s a pretty cool moniker, myself.
