Averie turned a big milestone this year and because we wanted her baptism to be the focus, we didn't do an official party. But we did have her two BFFs [as they call it] over for a sleepover the week before her birthday. It was very low-key but oh-so-fun!
We began by each making our own barbecue pizzas.
We then ate Averie's requested red velvet cupcakes [thank you Auntie Denise] and cake batter ice cream.
It was then time to open presents. Averie was spoiled by her besties. She got a newborn cabbage patch [she has been OBSESSED with everything and anything cabbage patch lately].
Here they are in their matching PJ pants and cabbage patches.
She also got new pajamas for her American Girl Doll [whom she is also still obsessed with].
See? Totally spoiled I say!!!
We sent little brother and sisters to bed and let the big girls stay up late. They watched Mary Poppins and ate our family's favorite of popcorn with M&Ms and Skittles.
We then made fairy jars [glitter combined with glow stick liquid in a Mason jar]. Their reaction to their fairy jars was worth the glitter all over my kitchen! I then sent them to bed and heard them talking a bit before they fell fast asleep...and they didn't wake up til 8:00 am!
The next morning I made Averie's favorite of crepes and they played and played all morning.
The easiest birthday party yet!
