A Girl and her Birthday Party

Yesterday we had a birthday party for S. To celebrate her 10th year on this earth. It was her first birthday party, ever. Every girl needs a party at least once in her life. She kept saying..."I never thought it would happen to ME". She was so happy and it was truly a special day for her. Her big sister came and did her hair, and helped with the party, so it was extra special. Here are some pics.







Peyton was our special canine guest for this occasion.....he is R's (T's oldest daughter) dog. He came to celebrate too.

We ended up buying book mark making kits, made out of that foam stuff. I was going to do picture frames so they could make their own picture frame, and then give them each a picture taken of them or a freind at the party...but...Michael's didnt have any, so I we did book marks. It was fun..they put their names on them with foam letters and decorated with flowers, birds and leaves...it went with the whole spring theme of the party...and all the girls seemed to enjoy it. We also did an easter egg hunt out in the front yard (plastic eggs with candy). All in all it was a great party.

The girl Caty, mentioned in a previous post who enjoys "torturing" my eleven year old boy made him a book mark. It said:

"Im coming for you" on one side, and "love u" on the back. Then she and S put it on his dresser so he would see it when he got home. He saw it and was completely mortified by it. Poor boy....

I love the song that is playing "When you were young" and also I feel so sad that your little girl kept saying "I never thought it would happen to ME!"
It's so cute though, it looks like she had a wonderful day!!
She's beautiful, too! :)

I remember Bianca's first party. She bawled her eyes out when she saw the pony. Some things in life are truly special moments!

The part where she said she thought it would never happen to her, very touching.

Happy Birthday to S!

I think it is amazing that this girl wrote, I'm coming for you on the bookmark and clearly his sister is egging her on! LOL One day he'll like girls chasing him. Sigh.
