7 is going to be great!

This was my first attempt at a real birthday party at home. I think next year we'll be back to our breakfast at Magleby's tradition. It's just too much work and clean up! And this party was fairly simple too. Luckily, Jess came and helped me pull it off. Anyway, Ellie sure is special. What a fun age: friends, loosing teeth, more independence, reading chapter books, writing in secret journals, emotional breakdowns. Life is great for a seven year old I think.
Our theme was Paper. Everything was made of paper and our activities were making banners with each girls name and paper flowers.

Ellie had Charise, Brielle and Lily over from our old neighborhood, Leah, her new friend on my mom's street, and Kelty and Molly. Such cute girls. The girls came over right after school and we had an after school snack of sandwiches, juice, veggies, grapes, and mini cheesecakes.
