Reece totally understood that it was her birthday this year. Starting clear back in about July. Every time we were at the store, she would inform me of the things she wanted for her birthday. Which was pretty much anything that caught her eye.
But it was super fun to have her so excited, and I think it’s safe to say that she loved every part of it!
We started off the morning of her birthday with a decorated door, decorated kitchen with birthday chair, and special cake mix pancakes, complete with sprinkles!
We were able to open up a few presents before Josh had to go to work.
And then playing with them of course!
Then it was time to get ready for school. She wanted to wear her new necklace, and brought cake pops for her class.
After school, we went to Target with some of her friends for her to choose something to buy with her birthday money.
We went out to dinner with Sam, Nikki, and fam to Noodles & Co. Sam and Reece share a birthday, so it was fun to celebrate with them. Plus, Reece got to have her favorite: mac & cheese!
Then it was home for more presents!
We had her birthday party the following weekend. It was her first friends only party, and it went really well! Reece loves to help me in the kitchen, so we did a little baking party. I had planned to have the kids decorate their own aprons, and then decorate their own cakes.
First the kids decorated aprons.
After decorating aprons, it was time to decorate their own personal cakes!
Then it was time for presents! We snagged a group shot before digging in to some cupcakes and juice.
Reece loved it and was spoiled by all of her family and friends!
