A sweet little preschooler with bouncy curls and a smile that never left her face. However, I blinked and she's grown up to be a sweet and sporty seven year old with a little bit of sass. The saying is true for her...she's made up of a both sugar and spice!
I set up the dining room as our party room and she was so excited to come home from school and see all the decorations just for her!
When the girls first arrived they took off to Harper's room and played a bit. While they were busy playing I got everything set up for the scavenger hunt. I had made up clues to lead the girls around the house. At the end they would find a special prize!
Next it was about time for dinner. We ordered pizza and the girls toasted with sparkling cider.
A couple of weeks ago I found this pink glassware that was in the back of a closet at Gigi and Papa's house. I don't know how I forgot about it, but my Memaw gave them to me just after I was married. I used to use at it her house as a little girl so I knew as soon as I found it that I wanted to use it at Harper's party.
Instead of having cupcakes or cake, Harper really wanted to go for frozen yogurt so that is what we did. I had the girls in my car and the boys went in the truck. They loaded up their cups and giggled the whole time.
When we got back they changed into their PJ's and she opened her gifts. I loved the smaller setting with just a few friends! Next they decided on a movie and I felt like I constantly was refilling their popcorn bowls.
The next morning they woke up bright and early, but thankfully they were happy to play a little on their own before they were ready for breakfast. That gave me time to get the waffle bar and other goodies ready.
She spent her actual birthday in the car with Gigi and Papa on the way home from Florida, but they made her feel extra special during the day and then when they got here we celebrated with her favorite dinner of tacos and brownies for dessert.
Today I helped in her class and stuck around for her birthday celebration at school. We passed out cookies to her classmates and they all sang happy birthday to her. I think she had a wonderful week of celebrating and I can hardly believe she is seven!
