Saturday was a big day @ our house. EllaKate was so excited that her friends were coming to her pony birthday party. Little did she know a real pony would be the highlight of the party. Here is a cute pic of her beautiful carousel cake.
Family and friends began to arrive about 2 and we enjoyed playing horse shoes. I had planned that we would all go in and begin crafts while the pony was unloaded and one person at a time went out to ride- well, that was a funny thought. The pony arrived and all the kids ran up to the top of the drive to see him. EllaKate came riding him, Snowball, down the yard. She wasn't frightened at all- completely in awe- She said, "I can't believe it!" The whole crowd of kids followed the pony around the yard while each friend rode along.
Birthdays are about family:
Birthdays are about friends:
Birthdays are about gifts:
Birthdays are about fun (cookouts):
It was the best of days! We sang happy birthday and all ate cake and ice cream.
We also enjoyed the beautiful outside weather, made horse crowns, and cracked a pinata. We opened gifts outside and people began saying goodbye.
Tomorrow is her real birthday and when I asked her what she really really wanted. Guess what she asked for? A pony all her own... well, can't deliver that but a visit to Memommy's house will be a great treat!!! So great to have my sister and her kids here. Happy Birthday sweet EK!!!
