|The birthday girl and boy!|
We had an ice cream bar set-up and Handley decided that she would like cookies instead of a cake so of course we called on my friend, Christy, to make her famous iced cookies for the occasion!
Handley had invited friends from all different places. A few from school, others from dance, some from the neighborhood, etc. I told her to make a point to include everyone and introduce them all so that no one would feel left out. At one point the girls were all sitting in a circle and going around telling their name, their favorite color, and how they knew Handley. I have to imagine that was orchestrated by her! It was the sweetest thing!
After all of the guests had left Handley opened what will probably stick out in her mind as the best gift ever. A framed Taylor Swift photo and autographed CD and the news that we are all going to the Taylor Swift concert in October!!!! It will be the girls and I, with our amazing neighbor and her son. We are so excited!!! And, to say that totally made my Taylor Swift loving little girls dream, would be a huge understatement. She was beyond thrilled. :-)
