Lilly's Teeny Tiny Hello Kitty Birthday Party

Since we were moving before it is Lilly's actual birthday, I wanted to give her a birthday party before we left with all of her friends in Pocatello. She really wanted a Hello Kitty party and my friend suggested one other thing... making it a teeny tiny party. It was so much fun to prepare! We made teeny tiny party invites (which I'll take a picture of later), and they were complete with magnifying glasses and all. Some of her friends couldn't make it, so she had a smaller party. It was nice and she loved it! We had a lunch of mini grilled cheese sandwiches with baby carrots and mini crackers. I was also able to find mini ice cream cones to go along with the whole theme. The only frustrating thing was that it was so windy on the day of her party (thank you Pocatello! - I do not miss your windy days!) So things were repeatedly blowing away. I was able to get pictures before the streamers and balloons gave in to the wind! Oh, and confetti on a windy day... not a good idea! Thanks everyone for coming. Lilly misses you all!

Molly loves pinatas

Mini cupcakes. We couldn't get a candle to lite because of the wind so she just pretended to blow them out!

Molly had a great time!

I spent a whole week with my Mom visiting my grandparents in California and these are the only pictures I took! How pitiful is that!?! I just thought this was really cute to see Molly sitting on top of the air mattresses reading books.

Happy 4th of July!

This 4th of July we had kind of a quiet day. We spent the weekend up in Preston with some of Aaron's family and attended the fun community events. We had a great time and it is always nice to spend time with family. We decided to come home a little early because I was leaving for California the next day. We waited for what seemed like forever for it to get dark because the girls were really excited for fireworks. Finally we got outside and lit the sparklers. The girls and I love sparklers! Then we watched the firework show from the park right by our house. The kids loved seeing all the lights and Molly was particularly impressed. She just danced around and was so happy the entire show. I hope everyone had a great 4th!
