Lydia turned 7 on the 28th of April. I am just getting around to posting her party. The day after her birthday, we welcomed family down for a week-long visit. We have had so much fun together. I will be telling you about that in my next post. This is how we helped Lydia celebrate her birthday "Little Pony" style.

All ready for the guests to arrive.

Time for lunch.

Let's open the presents. She got so many nice things from her friends.

Craft time--busy little bees.

We had the party the Saturday before her actual birthday. We took cupcakes into her classroom on her real birthday.

We also had a family time on her birthday evening. Here Julianna proudly gives her a couple of gifts that she made herself.

We finished the day by reading "Happy Birthday to You" by Dr. Seuss.

We called it a day, went to bed, and prepared for company to arrive.

Happy Belated Birthday to a pretty little girl...looked like a grand party! Loved the cake and all of the pretty colors! Adorable little girls! Precious memories for all of you! (Hey...I reported the "ratings" thing and they took it off for me...It WAS put on there automatically. How annoying! Oh well...)

Happy Birthday, Lydia! Your cake was beautiful! Julianna, I think it's wonderful that you are learning to sew and share your homemade gifts with others.

Happy bday to Lydia.

I also wanted to say I enjoyed the song you sang via the internet. It really blessed me and spoke to my heart. Nothing can fill that void like Jesus.
