We celebrated another birthday here on Friday! Gracie was very excited about turning SEVEN years old! :) We had cupcakes and juice with her classmates in the afternoon, which was fun. Later, her cousin came to spend the night and we all had dinner at Canyons.
We sang "Happy Birthday" and ate the chocolate cake she'd asked me to bake...
Then we went home so Gracie could open her gifts, which she both quickly and with great excitement!
And you can't see it very well, but she's wearing one of her gifts~ a tutu that the Southern Domestic Goddess made...so cute on her! :)
We had such a fun evening! The girls were having so much fun, they were giggling and whispering most of the night...our girls crashed last night, though! And by then, they were EXHAUSTED! So...my "baby" is seven. It's so hard to believe!
Here's a little Happy Birthday banner (of course!). Actually, I made it a few weeks ago and hung it up for Rose's birthday. I chose colors they both like so I could use it for both her and Gracie. I didn't show a picture of it then, so since it's back up again, I wanted to show you...
And I am so disappointed with how unclear the letters look in a picture. I noticed after making the banner that the white letters don't show up as well on the light blue paper and the yellow paper, but it didn't look this bad in person...
I still would rather show it to you than not! It is much easier to read in person, but I still might want to fix those letters...(But the above picture does give you a mini peek at the "new" yellow paint color on the wall.)
Before I sign off, I wanted to show you what I'm working on now... I'm starting a new tassel. This one has a "theme"...can you guess what it is?
If any of you would like to make your own tassel, here is the link to the tutorial I used at Betasseled. It is a great tutorial, and she makes it so easy to follow! :)
I hope everyone had a wonderful weekend! Ready for Monday? No, me either! :)
Have a good night!
