"It's my party and I'll be cute if I want to"

With only one day to prepare after we arrived home from vacation, the party was on!  

We started off the birthday weekend with dinner at Fenton's on Friday night.   Maren clug to Dad as the restaurant sang Happy Birthday.  So sweet!

We had the party at home the very next day.  This time we had the food catered!  Both brilliant ideas.  I did bake the cake myself (with some help of a gal we'll call Betty), wich actually looked and tasted really yummy!  Yay us!!

We bought a bubble machine and turned the carport into a bubble dance party.  Sidewalk chalk, some musical instruments, a parachute and some ride-on toys completed the entertainment.

The backyard portion of the party.

We opted to wait until after nap time for Maren to open her gifts.   She was very studious and took great notes, so we knew who to thank for such thoughtful gifts.

We were very pleased that she was completely amazed by the musical jewelry box we got her.

"Look at that!"

All of the gifts were incredibly thoughtful and will be loved and appreciated!  Mostly we appreciate all of the friends and family that have helped us celebrate one very special little girl.
