Let’s all sing it together… “It’s my party, and I’ll cry if I want to…” :)
Laney was a little overwhelmed by her birthday party. When she went down for her nap, there were eight people at the house, and when she woke up there were about thirty-eight. A lot of noise and people isn’t usually her thing, but she hung in there. Her cake smash was a bit touch-and-go. We had to pull out the old favorite B-I-N-G-O to keep her from melting down.
And to her daddy’s disappointment, she was not a fan of the cake. She was a fan of flinging it all over me but not so much a fan of eating it. The grown-ups enjoyed eating it for her. :)
The big turn around: presents. Once she realized there were some pretty awesome toys under all of that colorful paper, the whole party thing wasn’t so bad after all. Her little friends got in on the fun too.
Thank you to all of our family and friends who traveled from near and far. Thank you to those who sent well-wishes and gifts. Delaney is so spoiled by all of you. And we thank you from the bottom of our hearts for loving her so much. I continue to be overwhelmed by your generosity towards her. She is lucky to have all of you in her life.
Here are a ton of pictures from the big event:
I went a little crazy, I know. As you can see, I love planning, decorating, and seeing everything come together (a special thanks to my family for helping me make my vision come to life). Will she remember it? No. But it was worth it to me, because it’s something I enjoy doing and it’s for a little girl I love so much.
If you are interested, here is where I purchased the party supplies:
