Hannah’s 10th Birthday

Hannah's 10th Birthday

Hannah is quite the little party planner! {And, as an afterthought, I may have made a mistake introducing my artsy-crafty girl to the world of Pinterest.} She had the decorations, guest list, food, cake, and activities planned for months! Actually, her organization and detailed lists, along with Grandma’s help, were the only reason we were even able to pull off a party less than 2 weeks after adding a new baby to our family!

The theme was “Frozen.”

{The Snowflake and “Happy Birthday” banners, and the water bottle labels were another Pinterest find.}

And, as always, Hannah had very specific ideas about her cake…or her cupcakes.
Chocolate, with vanilla (white) frosting…and snowflake decorations!
She and Grandma baked and decorated them together.

And, like the sweet big sister that she is,
Hannah shared this privilege with her little sister.

The actual party was a bit more low-key than Hannah’s original plans.
But, everyone seemed to have a good time.

We invited several girls from church…

The girls had fun making paper snowflakes. (Yes, in Texas. In April.)

And, then they talked and giggled some more as they enjoyed the snacks.

Hannah has very sweet friends, and received some very thoughtful gifts…

Then, it was time for cupcakes and ice cream!

After our friends headed home, we continued the celebration with dinner, and gifts from the family…books about horses, doll clothes, more books (about more horses!), and a t-shirt and flip flops with horses on them! That theme was unintentional…but very appropriate for our horse-lover.
