Party Time!

By PaisleyJade - Tuesday, May 10, 2011

Yesterday we celebrated our little Princess turning seven!

Our morning started as it always does in our house on birthdays... everyone piles into our bed (and yes, the pets are there too) and each person shares something that they love about the birthday person.  Sometimes such thoughtful things are said... and other times, well, lets just say we hurry them along when awkward moments are focussed on, like – “but I don’t like it when we fight all the time”.  After that, we all pray for them, and then it’s time to open the birthday presents!!

There were some very special friends invited home for a little birthday party after school, with lots of fun games played.  My favourite would have to be “Pin the tail on Boo”.  Big thanks to my awesome guy for his amazing drawing skills.

We ate birthday cake, cupcakes and lots of other delicious treats.  Yes, check out that very exciting birthday cake in the top photo... more on that tomorrow.

Before home time, the girls enjoyed some cupcake decorating fun (a couple of adults may have been tempted to get involved too).

Tonnes of fun was had, celebrating our very precious little girl, who is growing into a beautiful young lady.
