My baby girl is THREE! May 8th will forever be one of the most
special days...the day that I was given the gift of a forever friend and
beautiful baby girl! She is sweet, sassy, spunky, and so stinkin'
adorable! And all she wanted was a "sprinkle party" for her birthday!
How could I say no to that??
asked her..."what do you do at a sprinkle party?" She said, "you eat
red sprinkles, pink sprinkles...." hahah! Love this girl too much! So I
gave her everything her little heart desired and went all out on the
sprinkles! We had a blast at the grocery store. We bought out the entire
sprinkle isle! My cart was full of sprinkles, and Faith Ann was beaming
with joy! I am soaking up the simple joy that jars of sprinkles make
her the happiest girl in the world!
had a sprinkle bar with ice cream cups and rice krispy treats...all
ready to be covered in sprinkles of choice!!! A "tutu station" full of
every color of tutu's for the guests! Of course a nail and makeup
station too! The boys wanted to help, so Trent made a "parade station."
He decorated his 4-wheeler and took the kids on parade rides around the
backyard. This was probably one of my favorite parts of the party...to
see Trent have so much pride in his "job" of driving the kids in his
self invented parade! Then, Hunter wanted a ninja station (of course!)
He helped the kids on the rope and climbing dome! It was an adorable
party full of personal touches!
Ally and the older girls on our street ran the party! They all took
over a station and worked to entertain...painting nails and makeup! Lots
of tutu's floating around too! We danced, jumped on trampoline and ate
TONS of sprinkles! The kids kept going back for another layer of
sprinkles on their ice cream!
makeup station turned into quiet the hit! The boys took over and did
the moms makeup! We died laughing but lived in the moment and let them
go to work! It was great fun! Faith Ann painted my nails (or should I
say my entire hand!!!) This party was so sweet, simple and so much fun
to watch all the kids be in the spotlight as they ran the party!
I wasn't so sure what to do at a "sprinkle party"...I got a confetti
cannon. It shoots confetti out, which I thought would look like
sprinkles! I gathered all the kids behind me, and I am glad I did
because that cannon was super powerful! Confetti flew out with a bang!!
always hire cousin Ally to bake the cupcakes for parties. She feels
special and does a great job! My kids love knowing that their sweet
cousin handmade their birthday dessert! Faith Ann was beaming as people
sang to her. She looked like such a big girl, full of pride! She has a
great little group of friends, and I look forward to watching them all
grow throughout the years!
Ann...you are something else! You are way more than I ever dreamed of
when I pictured having a baby girl. You are perfection! You are just as
beautiful on the inside as you are out. You are kind and gentle...yet
rough and tumble! You are the perfect blend of all things sweet and
sassy! I can't wait to see what God has in store for you. Wherever your
path leads you....know that your momma is always here to hold your hand
and cheer you on! You are so loved! And big news...she is potty
trained!!! As of last week! Very few accidents since, and we officially
have a big girl!
