Rise and Shine!- the party...

The table was set...

complete with a new tablecloth made by mommy...
(tutorial coming tomorrow!)

The donut cake was ready!

even a few "special" friends were ready...
all dressed in their P.J.s too!

Then the games began!
a curler toss...
one of the favorites of the morning!

pillowcases they painted and got to take home along with
their goodie bags...

the pillowcase race...
like a sack race...
Odie (our sweet golden retriever) was in charge of this game...
he did a fine job keeping them in line...

and a sure sign the party was a success!
What a delightful morning!!

Then one of the most important things...
sending a "shower of thanks" for all
the thoughtful gifts...
I created a fill-in note with a girl I painted
in some of Princess #2's favorite colors...
she loved getting them ready to mail to her friends!

and we can't forget the cupcakes we sent to school!!
Princess #2 and I worked on them together...
her favorite part was the green edible glitter!
(like mother, like daughter!)

I made the cupcake toppers using different punches,
Amy Butler papers, candy sticks, and hot fun!

A very Happy Birthday for one of our greatest Blessings!
Our little miracle, Princess #2!

Happy Monday!
Many Blessings!
