This year I did better with Lydia's party.
We got the invites out before Christmas.
But I still wasn't in the mood for a party so close to Christmas! haha
But Lydia was, so I was excited because of her excitement!
She decided on a donut party.
And invited 22 to of her closest friends... ;)
She was pretty pumped to be 7!
Plus pumped to have a day all about her.
(Let's be real, most days are about Lydia... she's the baby.)
The Astle's had given her a book and outfit for our elf Simon...
(who had just made it back to the North Pole!)
But apparently he comes back for birthdays if he's invited!!
He decorated this chair up all fancy for her and hung out in her room for the day.
You can bet she LOVED that!!
She was the "Princess" all day.
Only 16 of the 22 friends came to her party.
That was enough...
A little "Duck, Duck, Goose" switched to "Donut, Donut, Sprinkles".
Donut eating on a string.
Some other games.
And then more donuts.
We sugared those kids right up!
And then sent them out the door with more donuts...
Donut holes to be exact.
"Thanks a "hole" bunch for coming to my party."
She was ecstatic... I was exhausted.
She picked Pizza Pie Cafe for dinner...
because we needed some more dessert items like this.
Then home for cake and ice cream with family and big friends.
She was one happy and stinkin' adorable little seven-year old!
We love you Lydia and I'm begging you to stop growing up so fast!!!
