We had a lovely birthday for Grace. Her birthday is June 6, so yes, this post is just about 2 months overdue! We started out with a family party Friday night at my parent's house. Red was the theme, and even the gifts were color coordinated! This red dress up dress was sewn by Mimi and the parasol was from Nana.
Grace made it super easy on me this year and requested cupcakes. Yum, yum!
Saturday morning was Grace's friends party. We were both super excited about it! We had a super fun girly party at our house. The simple games, food, and fun, reminded me of the wonderful birthday parties my mom gave me when I was young. We started by playing with balloons indoors while everyone arrived, then moved out to the deck to decorate visers.
We had some fun playground time too!
And a bean bag toss....here's Lydia!
Good job, Maggie Jane!
My mom helped me with the girls while Clay's mom helped with Claire.
Grace and Rosie!
Present time! Grace got such sweet presents! There were some really sweet homemade gifts too, that I need to post pictures of--made me want to get serious about sewing!
Happy Birthday to you, my wonderfully smart, funny, beautiful 4 year old!
Cousin Maggie and Aunt Dana
The girls with their visers.
And Pinata Time!!!!
Nice effort, Emily!
Go, Andrew, go!
A good effort by all, but we ended up using the pull strings :)
Sweet Claire bear and Mimi
After all our planned festivities, the kids played Grace's new ice cream stacking game from Emily.
Andrew was such a good sport through all the partying. He didn't complain once about not getting any presents! Looking forward to your turn, buddy!
I forgot to say this was either a daughter drop off or mommy and me. Here's Emily's mom pictured, and Lydia's mom got to come too. The party was so wonderful, we are so grateful for friends!
