Lily’s Birthday!

So we handed out invitations the week before. We ran them around town. However, there is one little girl that lives in our neighborhood, so we thought we’d hand deliver her invitation. Lily is so excited and of course, we had to bring Lexi.

In case you missed it in this post, Lily’s theme was hot air balloons and most everything that would go in the sky, like… bubbles! Picture overload here. You are more than welcome to skip this part. Actually, you’re not. Look. At. Them. And, you’ll enjoy it too.






Decorating Hot Air Balloon sugar cookies:

Don’t forget… It’s not a good day of decorating until you eat the frosting with your knives. IMG_6394IMG_6392

We like to teach them young around here. Did I tell you that I teach these sweet kiddos on Sunday too? Oh yeah, I’m having plenty of hours to lead them astray.

*cue evil laugh here*

Tangent here. Every year, our Relief Society does a service auction. I donated three items. I also bid on many, but I won two. One of them was a birthday cake made by the fabulous Crystal. Yeah, her daughter up above on the left is eating with a knife. Anyway, I won the cake and it was awesome. In fact, here it is:


It was really yummy too! And of course since Lily wanted a pink cake, Crystal tinted it! But, I’m getting a head of myself. We sang to her and then literally everyone had to take a turn helping Lily blow out the candles. No. Joke. See, I have proof! Lily’s first. IMG_6450IMG_6453IMG_6460IMG_6462IMG_6464

Ok, so my bad, only 4 of the 6 children there helped Lily blow out the candles. But! I do have proof of that. See?

We then ate it. And it was yummy! In fact, the cake was huge and it was gone in our house in less than 2 days flat. And, we’re not really even cake people.




We then went on to presents




They were all totally awesome! She loved them! And lastly… the piñata!

We had a pull piñata instead of one you hit. I mean come on, a bunch of girls? I mean, I’m sure Kjell would have loved to hit something… but pulling worked just as good!IMG_6483IMG_6487

I’m really hoping Brynn had a good time. She didn’t really want any pictures taken of her. It didn’t stop her from pulling on the strings wanting the goodies! Kjelly was the one to eventually pull the string that dropped everything. Literally.


It was an awesome party. Very sedate. All the children were looking out for one another when all the candy dropped, making sure that everyone got what they wanted. I was going to take pictures of the goody baskets, but I can’t seem to remember if I did or where they are. Either way, Lily had a great time, and I think all the children did too. Until Kjelly wanted something and couldn’t have it.


Dang, he’s cute.
