Alanna's Party

Alanna had a cooking party with her friends this year. We had about 15 cute kindergartners here. Fortunately I had Alyssa and two of her friends to help out. Savannah also had a friend over to help with the activities.

Alyssa and her friends coordinated the events and helped keep everyone entertained. Here they are playing toss the bean bag in the cupcake tin.

Savannah was amazing with the children. She kept them in order and talked so cute to them! Here she is leading them in Simon Says while I am cleaning up the lunch and getting the cupcakes ready to decorate.

Alyssa made these amazing cakepops for Alanna's party.

One of the activities was to make these cute flowers for their bakers' hat. Alyssa and her friends helped the guests with it. Aren't those hats cute!!

It was a huge success thanks to many helpers!

Alyssa turns 12!

For Alyssa's 12th birthday she wanted to have a party at Build A Bear.

Surprised? I was too, but I humored her and did it. She was worried her friends would think it was too babyish, but they all loved it. They built their bears and then we went back to our house for food and a movie. Those girls can eat!!! They ate almost nonstop during the whole movie! Ahhh to be young! Alyssa is such a great young woman! She keeps me laughing and is a joy to our family.

Happy 12th birthday!

Alanna turns 6!

Happy 6th birthday to my sweet, sweet Lanicake! Here she is with her gifts: the movie Tangled and her favorite candy Reeses Peanut Butter Cups. I think she was more excited for the candy!
