Raelee had “The best birthday ever” in her words. Many friends came, and each sang happy birthday to her. I told her it was very special because no one brought toys and such, I had explained to her beforehand that it was going to be about celebrating with her, but they all made beautiful, special cards and brought her the things she loves most – flowers! I thought that was awesome! Our friends from Canada brought her Dr. Seuss books from their library and she thought that was cool! Everyone loved the cupcakes – my first go at making cake from scratch and honestly I am glad I won’t have to do that again for another year! 🙂 I am happy she had such a great day and that the entire village didn’t show up. The ones that came were only 30 minutes late!
Our friends that have the school brought her books from their library and told her she could come check books out anytime. That excited her to no end!
Handmade cards were so sweet!
Ibra’s card says she’s an angel. Gonna have to watch that boy!
