Emerson celebrated her birthday again, but this time it was her birthday party. We choose a "garden party" theme. However, it's been so HOT we did inside activities and gave "garden" theme favors to everybody. Each child got a decorated clay pot filled with a small pink hand shovel, a bag of seeds, a bag of potting soil and some gummy worms.
You would never know by this picture that the birthday girl was crying right before everyone got here. I love my Emmy but she IS emotional.
Her colors were hot pink and lime green with hint of yellow. I made pink, green and yellow tie-dyed cupcakes topped with cream cheese frosting. I got these adorable toppers on Etsy.
Then it was time for the BIG fun. We gave each kiddo a canvas, some paint, a brush and told them to go to town. They all seemed to really enjoy the painting.
Em received LOTS of great gifts including her first pair of cowgirl boots from Grandma and Grandpa.
She also got a handmade Strawberry Shortcake pillowcase from Tyson. That was something him and Cathy had been working on for her.
Here is a shot of Em with two of her favorite gifts, boots from Mom and Dad and an art easel from Paul's parents. It was a fabulous party and I feel lucky we got to celebrate with great friends and neighbors.
