Alexa's Art Party

For Alexa's 7th birthday, she decided she wanted to have an ART PARTY.   She had attended an art camp over the summer at Art Planet and thought that would be a fun place to have the art party.  I found cute invites on Etsy and we invited the girls in her 1st grade class (and a couple of their siblings) from school.  

The girls all got to make their own work of art. 

The instructor walked them through the steps but encouraged them all to make theirs unique.   

Look at these fabulous creations!

While their paintings dried, we had cupcakes.   Alexa wanted colorful cupcakes with sprinkles which was easy enough.    She also picked out crayon candles which all the girls seemed to like.

Alexa was so embarrassed when they made her wear this hat!

They are doing "cheers" with their cupcakes!

We took some photos with the props in the studio 

And before everyone left, we got a group photo with all the girls and their paintings.  They turned out pretty great I think!

This was a super fun party idea and everyone seemed to have a good time.  Thanks to all of Alexa's friends that were able to celebrate with her at her art party!

Happy SEVENTH Birthday My Beautiful Girl

Today, my little girl turns SEVEN.  Her teacher says she is smart, incredibly kind, a leader and a friend to everyone.  Her grandparents say she is full of energy, creative and sweet.  Parker would describe her as the best sister ever - she can make him smile and is always willing to play with him no matter how many times he pulls her hair.  Paul and I would add that she is generous, talented, artsy, loving, silly, wise and a true blessing.  We are so grateful God chose us to be Alexa's parents!!

Backyard Fall Pictures

It was a beautiful fall day so we decided to snap some pictures in the backyard.    I love some of the expressions that were captured!
