6 years ago

Our little NJ arrived on February 18th, 2005 at 3:15am weighing 7 lbs 11 oz and 20" long with lots of silver like hair.  Our 3rd child and 3rd daughter.  Kirk was in school at the College and it was almost reading week so he got to be home with us for an entire week!  

Since Kirks parents bought a place in California we have taken advantage and headed down there, during reading week, for the past 3 years.  Because NJ was born on the 18th her birthday inevitably lands in this week, so she hasn't been able to have a friend party.  This year we were determined to have one before we left but it didn't happen to on APRIL 1st we threw one for her.  This is no joke!!  lol

The decore

She wanted cookies instead of cake.

She had 10 friends over and you can tell!

The girls played PLACE THE KISS ON THE FROG but I didn't get one picture of it.  But they had fun putting on bright read lipstick and kissing the picture of the frog prince.

We also played some balloon games, opened presents and then had some birthday cookies.

On her actual birthday her grandma Hall took her shopping at the outlet mall so we could set up for her birthday party and surprise her.  We used napkins for the puff balls and xtra large cupcake liners for the streamers.  A little wrapping paper and a boughten "happy birthday" sign from Old Navy and we were set.
