We had a surprise lunch together at school, and brought in chocolate chip cookies to share with the class.
Dance and church make Wednesdays kind of a tough day for celebrations around here.
We asked her if she wanted to skip those things to celebrate her birthday or do her party on Thursday.
She decided on a Thursday party.:)
We had to sneak in one little late night after church gift opening though.
I think it's safe to say she liked her new American Girl Doll pajamas.
Deciding on the cake you want and all the details is a big deal right?
Janey was very specific about her cake wishes.
She wanted it to be rectangular in shape, yellow cake with chocolate frosting, rainbow jimmies, crushed butter rum lifesavers on top and the words "Happy Birthday Janey"...yes, she was even very specific about the wording.
We keep the cake a surprise until the big reveal. The girls love baking and decorating each other's cakes. Riley took great pride in her work and I think it came out quite perfect.
Janey has been wanting a doctor kit for what seems like forever. We had one years ago, but it got left and lost at a friends house. I think this was the perfect gift for her. She kept checking us over all night long. Oh, and she loved her Fancy Nancy notebook and Diary...it has a real lock ya know.:)
I missed that first look shot...
not quite sure what Daddy was doing here, but it must have been silly....
love this look....classic Janey
The Happiest of Happys are wished for you my sweet Janey Brooke.
You make us all smile with your silliness, your "spunky monkeyness", and your giggles.
You are a sensitive soul with a heart of gold.
You love to snuggle
and your perfect day would be one spent in your jammies
with your family.
I love you so very much my sweet and I am so blessed to be your mommy.
Happy 7th Birthday my love!
