In 7th Heaven!

Our sweet Halle turned 7 on April 2. To say that she was excited would be a bit of an understatement. The girl likes getting gifts more than anything in the entire world. To welcome Halle to a wonderful 7th year, we celebrated her birthday all weekend long.

We started with a small friend party at Color Me Mine. Halle LOVES to paint, and I HATE to clean up paint, so this was a perfect match. Halle & 5 of her besties painted little ceramic doodads. They had so much fun. And, me? Oh, I was a happy mama. I didn't have to do anything for the party! Hallelujah!

On Sunday, we had two parties for our cute girl. In between conference sessions we went to my parents house for a Easter egg hunt/birthday party, and later that evening, Sam's family came over to a little Halle party. I made an attempt at a Nothing Bundt Cakes cake for each party, and I think they turned out pretty cute.

Finally, the big day arrived on Monday. Halle was so thrilled to go to school and be the birthday girl. She walked around with a little extra bounce in her step!

We absolutely adore Halle. I don't know what I'd do without her. She is an amazing big sister. I depend on Halle so much during the day. WE LOVE THIS GIRL!

I didn't realize you made the cake! It was fantastic! Great job! Halle is a beauty! I love watching her open presents too. If they would just spontaneously open themselves all at once I think she'd be so happy!

I can't believe it's been seven years already! She is such a beautiful girl. And, Color Me Mine is the coolest place ever - maybe I'll have my next birthday party there too!!! ;)
