Ellie's 7th Spa Party

The invite for Ellie's b-day party.  I printed them on sparkly paper... for a sparkly spa party!  They turned out really cute.  Luckily I have a friend in the party biz an she sent me some fun files for this fabulous spa party.  Check her out HERE   Jenn is her name, and she exudes fanciness! 

Ellie's Party was SPARKTACULAR!  We started off her spa party with a pedicures.  This was one requirement for the sparkly party that Ellie didn't want to budge on.  She also wanted to do green masks... but then I thought of all of those girls having to wash the green mask off of their face,  I distracted her with cupcake decorating.  I blurred out the party guests in this pic because I am not familiar with all of the mommies, and don't have their permission. 

The aftermath of all the feet soaking. I heard one girl say, " my feet feel so special."  I had to laugh. 

After the pedicures the girls got to pick out sparkly finger nail polish and got their toes and fingers painted.  Luckily some of the Waspettes showed up to help paint fingers and toes.  We would have been there all night if I had to do them all.

Daddy even jumped in and helped.  He got to paint his little girls toes on her birthday- so sweet.

 Pretty in pink nails

Polka dot nails. 

Big hugs from Hailey.  Ellie hearts Hailey... and all of the Waspettes for that matter!

The treats!  I usually have mounds of food left over after every party.  These girls were hungry!

 I had left over cello wrappers from Mia's party.  
I quite enjoyed loading the candy into the little wrappers... my mom?  not so much. 

Happy Birthday lemonade-
A big thanks to my friend Shayla for helping me get this all ready.
I thought I had plenty of time after school, but turns out I didn't.  She helped set everything up, and even stayed and painted nails!  I really appreciate it.

I never got around to using the labels... woopsie.

After all of the beautifying the girls decorated candy bags and cupcakes.  Mia insisted on "chockit."  
She didn't eat it, but she licked off the frosting.

Ellie's dream come true was having some of the Waspettes show up to her party!  She was in Heaven.  I am so glad they were able to come.  I love ALL of these girls.  Thanks so much for giving Ellie her number one wish!

In the hip hop routine the girls do a basket toss throw thing. The girls made the mistake of letting Ellie give it a go at a basketball game once.  Now, it is the top thing on her priority list. 
They are all good sports!

The Waspettes and their number one fan... on her birthday.

The pinata was a hoot.  Mia could not hold up the bat.  It was really entertaining to see her try and maneuver it around. It doesn't get any sweeter than this girl!

She eventually got the hang of it.

Ellie was completely spoiled this year! I have never seen so many gifts for one little girl.

This year was definitely the year of the kit.  She had all sorts of kits... jewlery kits, votive candle kit, teady bear making kit, gingerbread house making kit, pizza making kit, solar system kit,
and a sand art kit (this was really fun). This girl is set on kits!
I think there should be more "kits" for adults.

Mia and Syd played the piano to entertain themselves us. 
Thanks uncle Nathan for taking some pics for me!

The girls had fun playing musical chairs and red light green light.

The last two girls in musical chairs.  Ellie won- which I am proud of... not in a I need my daughter to win sort of wayShe is just that girl who will purposely lose so the other person will feel happy.  She doesn't win on purpose and I just think it is healthy for her to win sometimes and be happy that she won.  I don't want her to feel guilty for winning.  OK, self therapy time over. 

Elvis and Brea.  She wants to be just like Brea when she grows up!  
Me too... except I'm twice her age.

Ellie loves this girl.  I am so glad she has such a good friend.

Ells and Abbs.  These two cousins are little partners in crime.  
I'm glad there is a girl cousin close to her age for her to play with. 

Sammy just wanted one thing the entire party... besides my sister Raegan.


Sammies b-day is coming right up.  We are planning a train birthday party.  We might have to switch it to a balloon party... or a bubble party- both high on the can't live without chart.  OR, we could do a train, ballon, AND bubble party.

The  Birthday cake.  Soo the plan was to have a few of the cupcakes together to sing to Ellie... well the candles went MIA.  Ellie was fine just to eat cupcakes and ice cream at her friend party.

Luckily Suzie showed up for the family party right after the friend party and brought this fabulous cake!  Thanks SUZ!

I ran home to look for the fance candles that we bought, but they were no where to be found.  I found a few random candles in the cupboard.  She didn't notice.

She always gives her candle blowing out privileged away to "the babies" anyway.  I wonder if she will ever blow out her own candles.  While we were singing to her, she was busy rounding up her two little siblings so they could do the honors.  She just gets so much more joy from having them involved, than blowing them out herself.  Although it looks like she is blowing them out... she is just demonstrating. 

Ellie- Happy 7th birthday to YOU!  I can't believe it has been 7 years already.  Your daddy and I love you so much, and appreciate you!  Our favorite thing about you is the amount of love you have to give, and how freely you give it away.  You have so many unique qualities and we know they will serve you well throughout your life.  Hope you had a great day!  Love, mom
