My baby child turned 9!!



My youngest child celebrated her 9th birthday this week. This is her last year in the single digits! Her name is Hannah and she is such a great kid! She smiles all the time and is full of energy! She never sits still and is just so much fun to be with! We call her our little party in a box! It makes me sad to see my kids growing up so fast!!

We decided to have a small family party this year, but I wanted to make it special for her. We had a pajama party! All of our relatives showed up dressed in their jammies and slippers and we had breakfast for dinner! We had the works! Three kinds of pancakes, bacon, ham, sausage, scrambled eggs, fruit salad, muffins, biscuits with butter and jelly! Yum! We had home made carrot cake (her favorite!) and chocolate cupcakes w/ chocolate icing for dessert! It was fun!

These are the invitations we made and a picture of the birthday girl! Happy birthday Hannie! I love you lots and lots!

Recipe:
Paper: SU! Very Vanilla, Orchid Opulence, Pretty in Pink and no name paper from Michaels
Stamps: SU! My Favorite Bear, Michael's dollar stamps
Ink: Cranberry Crisp, Wild Wasabi
Extras: Ribbon, flower baubles, and blender pen and pop dots
