This sweet girl turned 7 last Saturday! I'm still in shock. 7 sounds SO old, right?
Ebby Lee loves all things art-so we decided a painting party was the perfect way to celebrate her. We invited lots of her girl friends to Painting with a Twist on Sunday afternoon to join us!
We arrived a bit early to get the party area decorated just a bit.
Tab had a commitment right before the party so all three kids went to help me get set up. I was shocked at how helpful they were! These kids aren't babies anymore.
The boys came too! With two birthdays back to back, they made a deal they'd both invite each other to their parties. (Usually they prefer it to be all girl or all boy.)
This is how the party got started...a bunch of cute little girls and Nix on stools in front of canvases with some flowers drawn on to make things a little easier.
The instructor was teaching them about different brushes. Then he walked them through the painting...one step at a time.
When the paintings were finished, we removed all the easels and gave them free reign to paint on the table cloths.
I thought we had it all under control and then this happened...
Oh my!! Birthdays are for painting hands and then high fiving friends, right? :)
We let the paintings dry, while we sang, "Happy Birthday" and enjoyed cupcakes and snacks.
Birthday success :)
This group of girls is FUN!
Ebby Lee opened her presents. These girls were all so sweet and "oohed" and "ahhed" over the goodies. We played several rounds of Pictionary and then it was time to head home.
The perfect way to celebrate our 7-year-old!! She had a FABULOUS time celebrating with
