7 is a great age to be

Yesterday she was coming home from the hospital weighing a mere 5 1/2 lbs. This sweet thing arrived 2 weeks early because she would not fatten up in the womb. Using impressive acrobatics, she had tied her umbilical cord into a perfect knot, preventing nutrition from passing into her belly. And yesterday we celebrated her 7th birthday. How did that happen so fast?
We have a lot girls around here and we like all things girly. Our birthday parties reflect such things. Like this appliqued t-shirt with a little bit of bling added to it.
We added hot pink birds and angel's wings to our Christmas decor. You can see it without the birthday additions here.
We had hot pink and red cupcakes.
All were given pink and red corsages when they arrived. These were very, very easy to make, and cheap.
Martha's pom poms were hanging inside and out.
Of course there were flowers.
We took the crew of little friends to our churches Christmas concert. It was a dream, delightful, a perfect way to celebrate a birthday and prepare our hearts for Christmas.
Yep, that's her little face up on the big screen, she was giddy.
Can you tell?
Another detail worth mentioning...check out this updo on one of the little girls who was with us that night at the party. I so appreciate creative awesomeness involving hair. That's impressive and oh so fabulous.

That is THE cutest updo! What a fun idea. (And of course, everything from your little one's party looks like so much fun - so girly. I love it!)
Have a wonderful Christmas.

Amy,
Oh how festive! Looks like the Birthday girl had a wonderful day. And the updo!! Too cute. I love the sugar cookie for breakfast below---and the heroic attempt at a cuddly Christmas card. Your family is beautiful and I wish you all a very blessed Christmas.
lots of love,
edie
