The birthday celebration continued with breakfast with my mom & sister the next day and a plethora of errands (woo-hoo). Friday I prepared for Isabelle's "not quite a slumber" party! It was fun, but I ate too much junk food with the girls. Pizza, soda, candy, cake, chips, cake and homemade ice cream (thanks to Coo-Coo). We painted the girls nails and then I got the most beautiful manicure & pedicure from them. : ) My nails look fabulous! We played a few games and then sent them home to come down from their sugar high. I was pretty tired, but so worth it for my girl!
Today is the family party to celebrate Kayla, my niece, who turned 8 on March 7th, my birthday and Isabelle's birthday. Isabelle's actual birthday is the 19th, but we will be celebrating wedding festivities with my cousin! We have a bridal luncheon and the rehearsal dinner. I cannot forget to bring some goodies to her class...that's another very important celebration in her eyes.
Take a look-see at Isabelle's party:
The Cake (idea from family fun magazine & this website):
I made the "happy birthday" banner for her last year & I
had been wanting to try to make these tissue "pom-poms".
I was surprised at how easy & fun they are to make.
Isabelle set & re-set the table before her friends arrived.
It at least kept her from asking me "how much longer"
Coo-Coo & the birthday girl
...and it just wouldn't be a party if Chloe didn't take all
her clothes off. She also likes to be in the center of all the action.
Can you tell?
Mission accomplished. Party was a success, but I was so glad I didn't make it a sleep over. That won't be happening anytime soon. : )
