fluttering birthday

It seems I've been blogging about Sidney a lot lately----but it IS her special birthday month, so here is one more: The Butterfly Birthday Party!

We started out the fun by decorating paper butterflies and applying butterfly tattoos on all the little girls.

Then we read some butterfly books (you can see them behind the cute little sister of the Birthday Girl).

Butterfly nets came in very handy for our backyard butterfly hunt!


All that hunting left our fluttering girls hungry for sweets! We sang Happy Birthday to the Birthday Butterfly and ate cupcakes and had (pink, of course) ice cream in the shape of butterflies.



Sidney was spoiled by all of her family and friends!

What a sweet and beautiful girl!! I hope Sidney had the best birthday. :) Seeing all the butterflies and pink makes me excited for Ally's future birthday parties!!! I just hope she likes girly stuff at least a little--I was a bit of a tomboy as a kid, so you never know...

Anyway, I am soo happy that Thanksgiving is just around the corner and I will soon get to hug my nieces and nephew! Take good care until then. Love you guys!
