Molly's birthday party this year was totally and completely planned by her. All the way to writing the invitations. And while, I know that she completely loved the autonomy of 6-year-old party planning... It at times took everything I had not to giggle. This girl has her own sense of style.
Our only other attempt of an at-home birthday party was back in February of 2009 for Gabriel's first birthday. A crazy late winter, cold-front blew in the morning of keeping temps hovering at around 45... and the party was outside. So, it seems fitting that our second attempt gifted us with monsoony torrential goodness a mere 45 minutes before the party started. Molly's plan? To blast some happy music through the house (thanks, Millers!) and wake up the sunshine. You know what? My kid is a genius.
Besides, a little rain never hurt a 16 ft inflatable waterslide.
Especially when you are born with a need for speed!
Such a fun day celebrating this little miss...
