The Balloon Fairy comes to our house every year. She leaves balloons in the bedrooms of children the night before their birthday. Anna LOVES the Balloon Fairy!
13 girls (ages 4-7) + pizza + cupcakes + ice cream + piñata + piñata candy + presents + sleepover = 13 giddy girls, two tired parents and one very happy birthday girl! A big THANKS to Marlene for introducing me to Picasa to do photo collages!
The party was Barbie themed. I found some barbie word games on eBay and there were a huge hit and were SO cheap!
I also found this piñata on eBay. This is always a huge hit with the kids, I've noticed. Perhaps it's all the candy that falls out of it? A huge THANK YOU to my husband, Tyler, and to my friend, Sarah, for helping to make this party a success!!!
And there was much rejoicing: presents galore! Thank you, thank you to all family & friends who made this day special for my Anna Belle!
It's hard to believe that my baby girl is 7 years old. She is growing into a lovely, intelligent, talented young lady. She enjoys school and does quite well in math. She can sing on pitch and enjoys music and dancing. She is the best player on her co-ed t-ball team and is already looking forward to next summer to play again! She LOVES playing the wii with her Daddy and sister, Kristina. Her latest craze is playing with Barbies. I played with them when I was young and I enjoy seeing her creativity come alive with her new dolls. She is an excellent big sister to Kristina (who is Anna's shadow) and to Keith. Her request for snuggles cannot be denied and her hugs and kisses help me realize what an amazing opportunity I have to be Anna's mama. I sure love this baby girl!
