Sophie's Birthday Celebration Part 2: Cake and Gifts

Another LONG post.

After we climbed for a bit, we went to the party room for cake and to open the gifts.

I really prefer not to open gifts all at once, but we needed a break and the kids seemed okay with it.  I had gotten just plain cupcakes with purple icing.  I found chocolate candy that looked like rocks that we used to decorate the tops of the cupcakes.  Because it was an afternoon party, we just had drinks, fruit snacks, chips and the cupcakes.


After everyone had a chance to eat, we opened presents.



 Sophie loves opening presents no matter what it is (clothes, something she's never seen before, duplicates of stuff she already has).  She gets so excited, but this photo shows how she feels best.  Just look at that joy.  She was saying to me, "Momma, we saw that movie, it's the brave girl."  And, yes, we did see the movie (or at least half of it) last summer.  But she has never mentioned it since, and yet she was thrilled to get the Merida doll.


Once Sophie decided she was done climbing, this is how she spent the rest of her party...hanging with her brother, cousins, and friend.


Some random shots from the day.  I was very fortunate to have my friend Keri agree to be the official photographer for the day.

Getting her birthday spankings.
Sophie had a great day and I hope everyone else did too!
