Annie turned 6 in November and as is the norm I'm behind, but that makes it nonetheless important.
We took donuts to her school to celebrate and then listened as her teacher read through her birthday book of cards/pictures her friends made her.
That evening we had a sparkle party at our house where a friend of ours came and fancied up the guest's hair
Then girls made sparkle nail polish, sparkle lip gloss, adorned themselves with gaudy glitter temporary tattoos, and made blingy headbands. After that they broke a huge piñata and had more candy then they would every need that close to Halloween. Due to the number of little girls and the amount of adult assistance these activities required I got very few pictures.
Brynny was there though!
We ate cake
and had pizza. Then girls ran around the house having fun until their parents arrived.
The next morning we ate donuts (can you guess one of Annie's favorite foods) and Annie opened her family gifts.
Denver directed her in doing so
It was the year of the Shopkin which are these little plastic/rubber figures Annie likes to collect.
Later that day we went up to the campus where we all enjoyed the game day festivities and visited with friends.
At age 6 Annie has become more independent and continues to delight us every day with something she says or a sweet gesture she does. She has matured and grown so much being in Kindergarten that we regularly get a bittersweet reminder of how fast time is flying by.
She continues to be Denver's biggest fan, and has a caring little soul that will forever make her our sweet Annie even if at times we have to reign in the sassy.
