A birthday party with Rebecca!

 I know. My birthday was, like, a month ago. But! My sister Rebecca was away in Las Vegas for a call back audition for the movie she wants to be in. She was sad about missing my regular birthday, so we held a little party for just the two of us. There was cake, lemonade, sherbet, candy, everything! Rebecca and I especially loved the little chinese paper fans. They're so intricate and lovely, don't you think?

Mom made us eat sandwiches and watermelon before we had any sweets, which is reasonable, guess. 

Mmmm...yummy sandwiches.

We had a delicious chocolate strawberry roll cake, which Kit claims were all the rage in the 1930s. To us it felt like the perfect tea snack, and we were trying to mimic a classic english tea party, so we wore fancy dresses and ate finger foods and fancy foods.

The mango-orange sherbet was the best!

We also had little baskets of jelly-beans and mint sticks.

We had a great time at our tea-party!

 "I have a surprise for you!" Rebecca said once we were finished eating. A surprise! What could it be?
She brought me back the cutest outfit from LA! And the shirt's purple, my favorite color!

She also gave me the sweetest little coat, but we couldn't figure out why they were selling winter coats in LA!

I love my new outfit!

Rebecca and I decided that we would have a sleepover to celebrate my birthday. We changed into our pjs and played Cadoo, the game I got for my real birthday. It's fun, and the perfect sleepover game! We had to do silly things like act stuff out and sculpt stuff out of play-doh. Rebecca won, but it was a close game.

Then we played with my Addy paper dolls. I let Rebecca be Addy because she was my guest.

I was Addy's friend Harriet. Here we are playing in Addy's schoolhouse. 

After paper-dolls, we played Addy with American Girl dolls. Rebecca let me be Addy this time and she took Cecile, who we pretended was Harriet. 

Finally my mom said that we were being too noisy and we had to keep it down, so we went and sat on my foldout bed and chatted.

Finally we went to sleep. It was so much fun to celebrate my birthday with Rebecca!


  1. Hi Katelyn,

    I'm Sophie! You have a cute blog. Anyway, what a fun birthday sleepover! That mango-orange sherbet looks SO good, and you received some fabulous presents. Don't you just love that coat? I have one just like it, actually.

    You are so lucky to have a Cécile doll. I've been wanting her myself. I think I'll ask for her for my birthday or maybe next Christmas.


  2. Hi Sophie! The goat is amazing. It snowed here all day today, and I finally got to put it to good use. Very warm and cozy. Cecile is a wonderful doll, my personal favorite out of the 4 I have. You should totally ask for her!

    1. Wow! So intricate those paper fans are! They are beautiful! Will you ask Kit what that cake tastes like/ And see if she will give me the recipe. My name is Annamarie.
