Happy Birthday Phoebe

Today is Phoebe's birthday and I had her party. 11 little girls came to get wet on the blow up water slide and do lots of fun crafts. I can honestly say that I have never thrown a party where I ran out of time to get everything done before it was time for the parents to pick up their kids. Today I managed to be just getting to the blowing out of candles when it should have been time to end things. It felt a little rushed at the end, but we got through everything and everyone had a great time. We made water balls out of sponges, painted ceramic ponies, made giant paper flowers, and did some fun art with a salad spinner. On top of all that we also had the waterslide, lunch, and a cookie cake. I had plans to make this really cute mermaid cake, but Phoebe really just wanted a cookie cake instead. So I made my life easier and bought the frosting covered giant cookie at Target last night. Now Phoebe is 7. Wow, I can hardly believe it! Thank you to everyone for coming and making Phoebe's day so special.




Granny, Phoebe is so excited about the book and love the necklace! Thanks soooo much :)
You should have seen Phoebe's eyes when she was opening the box sent from Nana and Papa all the way from Korea. She was the most excited to open this present and was not dissappointed. It was full of goodies and this cute korean doll. Thank you soo much :)

Her new bike that she needed so badly since her other one is waaayyy too small. I cute little beach cruiser.

The water slide is always a hit! I bet it cooled you off in the hot Texas weather.
