Emma’s 5th Birthday

We celebrated Emma’s 5th Birthday on Saturday, December 17th, the day before her Birthday.  Emma wanted to have a “girl only” party and she invited several close church friends and school friends.  When she went to The Little Gym classes this past summer she decided that she wanted to have her party there so we booked it about 5 months in advance. :)  We went with a pink and green owl theme for her party!  I had the invitations made on ETSY (the picture of Emma on the card was taken by our good friend Kathy Krey- thank you Kathy!)

Lookwho2 Emma

 

I snapped this picture before we left for the party… Nana got her this cute Hello Kitty outfit and I just couldn’t get over how big she looked!

This was cute… the hostess asked the girls what they were there celebrating and all of the girls pointed to Emma and said, “Emma’s Birthday!”

Each girl got to show their favorite “trick.”  Emma confidently and proudly did a forward roll! You just never know with Emma… sometimes she is shy and clams up and sometimes she is super confident!

The cake!  My good friend, Connie Easterwood, made this adorable cake.  I found a picture on-line of a cake I really liked, I sent her the pic and asked her if she could make something similar.  The cake below is the EXACT cake, even cuter acutally.  It is ALL icing, even the lollipops!  I was kinda sad to cut it and eat it.
