A few days ago, I wrote that “my house is dirty, my laundry needs to be done, and my kitchen looks like a bomb went off.” After yesterday, the exact same can be said. Although I’m pretty sure the house looks worse now then before! I think the party went pretty well minus the fact it was a utter mad house here for about 2 hours.
For her actual birthday, Big Daddy was working, so Em, Ella, Kaden, Terry, Trissa, Keevan & Kaleb came over and we had cookies to celebrate!
What we would do without this lady in our lives, I hope to never find out! She is such a great friend to me.
Sassy Ella (her shirt should be her motto…)
TT & Ansley
Aaron and Chris finished building the swing set from Grammy & BamBam Friday nite, so the kids didn’t see it until Saturday morning. Landry was THRILLED! Needless to say, we’ve spent lots of time out there already!
Saturday afternoon was her Sweet Shoppe party. This is the awning that dad made for the sweets table. We had cupcake push-pops and regular cupcakes *that Grammy made and were delicious!* (they sat on the colored trays, don’t know why I didn’t take a picture of those?), an ice cream bar & candy. It was a sugar coma waiting to happen…
The only pic I have of the invite, is off my phone.
Miss Priss’ smash cake
Here’s the “lemonade” stand that Big Daddy made. I LOVE it! Instead of lemonade though, we had a pineapple strawberry punch.
Ice Cream bar
Close up of the favor bags and water bottle labels I made. (The sweet bags are just computer paper – if you want to know how to print them, let me know.)
Little princess waiting to open presents
This is about as interested as she got.
Luckily, her brother is very interested in opening gifts!
See, she gave up on presents!
The adorable paper doll quilt Nancy made for Ansley. It is SO precious. She also made a pillow case to go with it, but I didn’t get a picture of that either.
Deciding she’d rather just chew on her new little Pony.
Landry got a punching bag!
Smash cake time was a little disappointing. I think it was the hat that threw her off, she never could decide if she wanted it on or off, or on the floor.
Once again though, Landry came through! He begged to eat that cake since Friday when I baked it!
This is “Banna’s” baby Kinslee. Ansley is slightly obsessed with her and doesn’t understand why we don’t let her just “love” on her all the time (it could have something to do with the fact that when Kinslee was like a week old, Ansley attempted to poke her eye out…)
And this would be Landry’s future wife (Ella) making out with another man (Ethen). Notice the closed eyes and everything?
Uh huh. They need couple’s therapy sooner than we thought.
Sweet Macy and Landry. She’s so good with him!
Finally, she got to play with the baby!
Silly girl had a GREAT birthday and was spoiled beyond measure!
I owe HUGE shout outs to several people-
Mom- for EVERYTHING. Literally. You are the greatest mom / Grammy EVER. You rock, more so than you’ll ever know. Not to mention, everyone loved the cupcakes!
Dad- for making the awesome table awning! From a picture to reality in less than a hour and for helping me make the cupcake pushpop stands (and drilling all the holes!) and never once complaining about any of it!
Emily and Jaime- for helping me get everything ready the nite before and cleaning my childs room! (Oh, and listening to me complain!)
Sav- for helping with the sweets table & the super cute sixlets (and listening to me complain!)
Aaron- for helping Chris build the swing set (sorry you always have to work when you come over.)
Big Daddy- for making me the lemonade stand (in about 30 minutes!), finishing the swingset, painting EVERYTHING! and making sure the house looked great before the party! We love you bunches!
Overall, I think it was a success!
**I got the idea for the lemonade stand here !**
