We had house guests (2 adults and 3 children) who came into town to celebrate her big day. She was on cloud nine all weekend and it was such a great time.
We started Thursday with the circus that we were blessed with. That was a fun experience to start the weekend off. The acrobats and the elephants were their fave.
Then the party began Friday night when Memaw and Pappy showed up a night before planned. We went to a quick birthday dinner and finished up some shopping for the big party the next day.
The day of the party had finally arrived. And since we haven't quiet had enough of Frozen, we decided to bring it in to the 80 degree weather...
But before the party guests arrived... her daddy and I decided to start the morning off with gifts. We always wake our girls up to us singing Happy Birthday and we open gifts immediately. It is like Christmas morning on their birthday! This sweet child had asked for this for the last two years. But our finances have never quiet lined up... however thanks to a yard sale we were FINALLY able to say YES. And i felt awesome. Imagine how much your Father in Heaven enjoys saying YES to you?
If you wanna see the real excitement... check out this quick video I posted on Facebook. (HERE.)
Her name is Joy. A good way to remember this moment.
It was an awesome day and the highlight was the surprise visit from Elsa herself. Thanks to the Wilmington Party Crew, they arranged Elsa to come straight from Arendelle herself. Ej was a little timid at first but soon warmed up to her new friend. As her mom, I could see in her eyes that she was so happy the whole time. Elsa told her that freckles were kisses from angels... Ej has been reminding me of that all weekend.
The party ended on Monday after a hard goodbye with some of our favorite people. But a promised next visit is in the making which makes this departure a lot less tough.
Thank you to everyone who made my BIG girl feel so special.
HAPPY 6TH BIRTHDAY EMMA JANE!
We love you.
