It was a little breezy and we had a hard time getting the candles lit - we just had to pretend!
One of the parents who helped a lot during the party was Heather Worrell - Thanks Heather!
Sunday was the 'Family' party - It has become a tradition for us to always have a cookout for the family and close friends, and this year some family members drove from Virginia, South Carolina and Georgia to visit for the day! This year it was rainy and chilly, so we all had to fit in my tiny house for the party! It was a little tight, but I don't think anyone got claustrophobic! I made the same strawberry shortcake for this crowd too... and everyone seemed to like it!
Cousin Maddox came and got lots of love from everyone!
Anderson climbs onto Taylor Anne's new John Deere bike... nice orange diaper cover, huh? I don't know why he didn't have his pants on... everyone remarked on how he was wearing 'safety orange' pants!
Taylor Anne opening her horsey treasure box from Great Boo and Nick-Nick! It has lots of little drawers and a horse that dances around to music. Soooooo Cool!
Opening the present from Anna, Rick, and Sylva - cool pop-up barn with Sheep, Cows, and Horses.
My Mom and Grandfather (Nick-Nick), showing the horse luggage set she and my Dad gave to Taylor Anne. It is great - rolling suitcase, regular backpack, a pencil case, and wallet - all with green corduroy, embroidered horses, and horse pull-tabs on the zippers! So Cool!
Taylor Anne got so many wonderful presents! She received 3 Webkins pets in all - and is having a great time buying them furniture and clothing already - She's one Happy Birthday Girl!
Now - back to reality!
(She had to get up Monday morning and go to school - just the same as any other Kindergartner!)
