addie's 3rd birthday party {with friends}

My hope is that this blog can become more of a means for documenting events in our family as well as for sharing projects and ideas.

Back in April I had a little birthday party for Addie with her friends (the children that I babysit during the week) on her actual birthday. Then the following Saturday we had a birthday party with family.

I loved making it an extra special day for her with her friends. We played games, had a special lunch, ate mini cupcakes and ice cream and played games. Here are some of the photos from that day:

I love colorful ribbon!
Instead of goodie bags I sent the kids home with a big bottle of bubbles.
I used the ribbon to pretty them all up.
A fun little lunch!

Some of the decorations that I (quickly) made.
Happy girl!
She had been wanting this game for a long time and one of her friends got it for her.
They immediately wanted to play it.
So we did.
Her gifts
Fun mini cupcakes
My pretty birthday girl!
Silly girls playing dress-up.
A Princess, Little Red Riding Hood and Dorothy

It was such a fun day!

I still can't believe she's 3. She's looking more and more like a little girl. You are such an amazing mommy to have done this so creatively!
