Candy Birthday Party

Today we celebrated Grace's 4th birthday by having a Candy Shop Party! This by far was my favorite theme. Grace loves candy so she was on board from the beginning. I had so much fun planning and watching Grace get excited as the time got closer and as she saw me buy things for it.

Daddy did an awesome job making her a sign!
I was so excited to find the outfit Grace had on at Target. It matched the colors we were using!

We had fun finding candy in the colors of pink, blue and white.

Thank you to Courtney who gave me SO many great ideas for our party and even gave us some candy to decorate!

Grace is waiting for her friends to arrive. She was truly excited and told me she was going to hug each one when they got there.

Grace's Birthday

Can you believe Grace is FOUR years old? My how time has flown by.

Grace was SO excited about this birthday. She have been talking about it for months! I am pretty sure Gracie had a special day! She woke up to a balloon, a birthday t-shirt, doughnuts and chocolate milk.
Maw Maw and Paw Paw came and got her for a birthday date. They went to Chick-fil-a for lunch and then to see a movie, Alvin and the Chipmunks 2.
And what date is complete without four pink roses from Paw Paw!
Then daddy came home from work with a real fish. Grace named her bubbles.
Then Heather and Drew came over and we all went out for Grace's birthday dinner. Per her request we went to eat "white dip", Mexican. Then came home for presents and cake.

Then on Wednesday Grace was the special girl at school. I came up after lunch and helped celebrate with cupcakes. Look how sweet she is in this first picture as everyone is singing to her.

She even got a present from Ms. Joni and Ms. Tina.

Almost the whole class.
