Emily's 7th Birthday

My little one turned 7 last week.

Don't mind the tattoo. Why do little ones like these things?

Anyway, her birthday was on a weekday, so Ethan, Emily and I celebrated with dessert at Dairy Queen.

Only I was the only one to get ice cream. I got a shake. A mint chocolate chip shake. Yummy! They did not pay me to say that, but they should!

Emily wanted a smoothie and Ethan a slushy.

Cheers to the 7 year old.

This year Emily wanted her party at the local skating rink. I was secretly super excited. It's hard to host a party and keep the kids occupied and take pictures and set out food and yada, yada, yada. This year it was "put on your skates and go for it. I'll call  you when it's time for cake!"

She looks really intense blowing out her candle. She said she wished for an iphone! Keeping wishing 7 year old!

Here are the cookies I made!

The colors I used were pink and zebra stripes.

I made strawberry and chocolate Muddy Buddies for the party goody bags.

It was a success. They kids loved it and Emily was beaming all day. And best of all, no decorating worries and easy clean up! Just add pizza and *wham*, successful party!

Happy 7th Birthday Baby Girl! We love you!
