Someone special had a birthday this month!
Whitney's big day started off with freshly baked (from the can)
cinnamon rolls. We learned that the bottom of the candle
will melt when placed in hot cinnamon rolls. Mmmm...melted wax rolls.
As a family, we let her choose dinner.
She picked her very favorite place where we hardly ever go:
That place works well for our varied family tastes.
The kids' favorite part?
Cotton candy unicorns
At home, we opened family gifts.
Whit's always great for expressive reactions. :)
We had a small party with her friends a few days later.
These are her three best friends from school.
They are all in the same class and get along great.
It was SO fun and easy to have them over.
We didn't really do a theme this year.
She said she wanted to have pizza, a movie, and time to play.
We decorated the breakfast nook table
for the four of them.
We sent them on a treasure hunt for their goody bags.
Andrew came up with some tricky clues.
But the girls were up for the challenge!
Then we went outside for a photo shoot.
Little cutie patooties.
Then it was time for cupcakes!
The girls decorated their own.
They went WAY overboard and then could barely eat them.
But they loved the process. :)
Whit got to light her own candles.
And then proceeded to blow them out
before we were done singing.
They played outside for a little while.
We gave each other manicures.
Then we watched (most of) a movie before the girls went home.
Such a fun evening.
