Rosie’s Sixth Birthday Party.
Rosie’s actual birthday is the 19th, but we decided to celebrate early before we leave for Atlanta to get T. We’ll be driving home on the 19th, and that won’t make for a fun birthday, so early party it was!
Most people are out of town and busy this time of year, poor Rosie. We just had family and Rosie’s friend who lives down the street over to my in-laws’ house for the party. It was still fun though. Rosie had a blast, and she somehow got way more (expensive) gifts than we anticipated.
Waiting for guests to arrive…
This huge box was from my brother-in-law and soon to be sister-in-law.
Finally we can open the presents! This was her big gift from us.
Ada got a few little things to open too, so she would leave Rosie alone.
The really big box was filled with balloons. Each balloon had a message on it for Rosie that SIL wrote. The bottom of the box had SIL’s old American Girl doll clothes!
Rosie wanted butterfly cupcakes, and my sister made a delicious cheesecake for the adults.
The cupcakes came from Sam’s Club.
Ada was really into the “pupcakes” as she calls them.
And there was a final unexpected gift–
My father-in-law got Rosie a power wheels jeep.
I told Rosie she could never have one of those. She was THRILLED. I think she nearly had a heart attack.
All she wants to do is ride in it up and down the sidewalk. Thankfully it runs out of batteries in our hilly neighborhood!
I think Rosie had a great sixth birthday, even though she isn’t actually six for another week.
Can you believe she will be SIX? Gosh, that’s so old.
