Pinkalicious!

During our scholastic book sale at school the kids decided that they wanted to get ryen the Pinkalicious book. They had both read it and thought that she would like it because she only likes pink right now. So she opened on Christmas morning and aunt shell read it to her during one of the calm moments. The story is about a girl who disobeys her parents and eats so many pink cupcakes that she herself turns pink. I had no idea how deeply affected she would be by this book, I have scarred my beautiful niece for life.

Fast forward to Syd's bday and the pink cupcakes that were served. That is one of Ryen's driving forces for taking a nap so that she can get to the party.......a cupcake! But as she enjoyed the celebration she realized that we only had pink cupcakes to eat, her little lips turned into a downward slant as she realized she could not have a cupcake! So when aunt shell asked her if she wanted a cupcake, she quietly whispered...."I cannot have a cupcake, because I do not want to turn pink!"
