The party started with this...
Seriously, HILARIOUS! I planned on the party being outside, but the weather was less than stellar - cold, misty, and super cloudy! So, as each guest entered the front door of the house they were greeted by Rooney, tools in hand, working away!
Before long, dinner was served, and this beautiful moment took place --- fills my heart!!
Then there were presents. First, those that needed unwrapping and hugging...
Then, those that needed riding...
Some needed driving!
There was clapping for cake, of course! Excuse the blur of this photo... none of the pictures of her clapping were in focus well, but it was just too cute to not include!
Did I mention I made her dress? It was a last minute decision, but I was so pleased! I'm not gonna lie - it was kinda special to this Mama to know I made it! No fear... all that cake goodness washed right out!
Day full of memories and lots of LOVE.
Thanks to all of those who blessed us with your presence in celebrating Sister-girl!
