[ice cream party]

i scream, you scream, we all scream for ice cream!

my dear sweet olivia turned nine!  my oldest is getting so old!  how does that happen?  it's killing me!
this cutie is the best helper ever!  i don't know what i'd do without her!  i'm going to be sad when she
has to go back to school in the fall.  olivia is such a hard worker.  she seldom complains when asked to do chores, her homework or practicing.  she has the most adorable little laugh, and she's really funny!
she cracks all the kids up!  we love her to pieces!

every other year we throw them a friend party...  olivia wanted an ice cream one!
prepping the party premises.  i cut up scrapbook paper i never use and made these flag banners.
i shipped sam off with the two littles and my cutest friend heather happily helped me with the party! 
 i know i could never have managed all eleven girls without you dear friend!  thank you!

ideas, templates and inspiration found on one charming party!

  1. Oh goodness...the brownie photo, Amelia? I realize that there were few opportunities to take photos when I wasn't eating a brownie...however...

    :) It was such a fun did an amazing job!

  2. What a great idea Amelia! I cannot believe Olivia is 9!!!! Where did the time go? It took me a minute to realize which one she was in the picture, I have never seen her with short hair. She looks adorable. I love looking at your blog, you are always so cute and creative. You're really going places with your photography, it's amazing!
