Party, Party, Lily has a Party!

Sunday afternoon we celebrated Lily's birthday with a party and a few friends over at the house. The weather was overcast and very breezy but no rain fell and the bounce house held.

Here is Lily a few hours before the party admiring her cake. The ladybug on top is a match to the ladybug on her party dress hanging on the chair.

My friend, Valorie, made this cake for Lily. Didn't she do an awesome job?! Everyone at the party just raved about the cake. Thanks so much Valorie!  

Lily with her friends, Estella, Ryan, and Caden. Here is a rare shot of all the kids looking.  We had a hard time keeping the plates on the table.  Just a few seconds more and a big wind came by and blew them all over the front yard. Gotta love those trade winds. Even with the wind the big brothers and the little kids had fun with the bounce house, the trampoline, the slide and bubbles.

Here is our little princess ready to dig into her layer of the cake~the whole ladybug. Of course, our little lady requested a fork so as not to get her fingers dirty. Lily had been practicing blowing out her candles;  she was successful at her party. Once we put the ice cream in front of her she was using both spoon and fork to get all the yummy desserts in her mouth at the same time.
Everyone had a great time (I think!) and we feel so blessed to have friends here to help us celebrate our sweet baby girl's birthday.

I love the practicing for blowing the candle out. I will admit that Acer didn't have a candle to blow out because he's a spitter. Rather than rain on everyone's parade, I just skipped it!
She, and the cake looked adorable.
