It's a Party!!!

Friday, February 11 was Courtney's 8th birthday! EIGHT years old!!! I don't know where the time has went!? Court is such a sweet, smart, talented girl and is growing up way too fast! I did my best to make her day special. She was really sad that Clay wasn't going to be here to celebrate with her so we did our best with cell phone videos back and forth, next best thing. She could barely sleep the night before her birthday because she was so excited. I was worried she was going to be disappointed because we weren't having the "friend party" like we did last year. But she was a good sport and we still had a party, family style.
Beautiful Birthday Girl!!
We started the day by putting her name on the radio and she won the daily birthday drawing for the second year in a row!! What a lucky girl? Cept this year I won't be a loser mom and we will actually use the certificates!

She won a cake from Shaffer House, lunch or dinner at Papa Kelsey's, ice cream at Casper's and a special gift at Hallmark.

I stayed up late the night before and decorated the kitchen for her!
And.... made an attempt at Cake Pops. Cute, pretty to look at, quite tasty, but A LOT of work! Good thing you are worth it Courtney! ;)

I ordered 'Hello Kitty' cupcakes from Sam's Club as her "cake" for something different this year. I think this is the way to go, less expensive and still cute. 30 cupcakes decorated as I requested and half of them were white cake and the other half were chocolate, only $13!!

Invited the family over and we partied it up! Even Lilly had a good time!

Court got spoiled rotten with gifts!

Hannah Montana snuggie from the Lott's...

An outfit for La La Loopsy from the Rinderknecht's...

A teacup piggie from Grandma & Grandpa...

Fuzzoodles from Conner...

And finally a decent digital camera from mommy and daddy.

Stuck candles in some cupcakes... and taaadaaa!! It's a Party!!

Then we had a sleepover with Kenzlie and Hadley!! The girls had fun playing her new Head Bandz game. They got to watch movies and had homemade waffles for breakfast!

I hope that you had a wonderful birthday baby girl! And yes, you will always be my baby!
