|Happy Birthday Sweet Six!|
Little Miss Olivia recently turned six (right before the flu hit again, thankfully!) I didn't want to leave her birthday month without posting pictures and celebrating her amazing little self here. :) We had our friends Wendy and Aspen drive down for NorCal to be here, and had friends over to help celebrate. Livie had decided a while before her birthday a few things: 1. She wanted a picnic. 2. She wanted to give an art lesson. The only problem was that the weather had no idea of her picnicy plans, and was not going to oblige her request. So we planned an indoor picnic, complete with a pot-painting party for some spring seeds. :)
First, we had music:
Of course, fun and games:
And a spread for an indoor picnic that makes me hungry even now!
How about a picnic with a roaring fire?!
Presents before cake, really?!
NOW can we have cake??!!
|She actually asked for two cakes- this pink pony cake, and mom's lemon cake-mmm, happy to oblige!|
|Make a Wish!!!|
|Wendy helped her pick her favorite songs|
|And we all got to singin'!|
Meanwhile, Gabe was in the garage with his helpers, trying to finish his gift to Livie:
As the night wound down, Livie found she still had two more presents! One from Wendy- she brought the girls her set of Fisher Price dolls and dollhouse toys that she had when she was little- so cool!
Then Gabe gave her his gift: a handmade wooden rocking horse (where does he get this stuff?!)
All and all, I think six is turning out to be pretty spectacular!
|We love you Olivia!!!|
