Abi has been counting down to her birthday for months. It's hard to believe that my baby is seven. I must be getting old. She requested a "butterfly" birthday party. We had a fun time shopping for the invitations, plates, cups, decorations and party favors. She decided on a little peg board craft for each girl, brightly colored purses for gift bags, scented bubbles for a prize and a white unicorn pinata'. (It's not a Meek birthday without a pinata'.) She also chose butterfly cakes in lemon and cherry chip and rainbow sherbet and cookie dough ice cream. She's such a little planner.
Her friend party was a lot of fun. When the girls came they each got to choose a peg board craft to do, which mom then ironed. Kris commented that this was the best part because they were quiet. Then we did a cotton ball drop to win the purses and a treasure hunt around our yard for the bubbles. Everyone got a whack at the pinata' with cousin Gabby knocking it from the tree, then Kris dumped it out for everyone. Abi received some really nice presents from her friends and then we had cake and ice cream. Afterwards they went outside to blow bubbles, eat candy, jump on the trampoline and have a giggly, girly time. (This part was not so quiet :)
Sunday we had family over for more butterfly cake and ice cream. Mom made three cakes in all. Abi had been wishing and waiting for a pink Kidzoom camera which she received from Mom and Dad and Nana and Papa Fife. It's her favorite she says and has been having a blast taking pics and movies. She also received other very nice presents from her Nana Meek and aunts and uncles.
