Susie was definitely “under the weather” and didn’t want me to let her go, so I held her the whole time with her blankie…it was sad that she wasn’t herself, but I felt very loved and like a mommy:)
Notice my butterfly necklace…Susie’s party had a butterfly theme…it was sweet:)
I did cupcake towers for this party with butterflies on them. My friend, Anita, had some butterfly gummies that I used. But most of them were gummy slices cut lengthwise in half and then I put antlers and a spine in the middle with icing. (if this is what they are called)
The kids went back and forth and played in the play area…we were able to get tables right by it, not right away, so we did a little shuffling, but, as always, IT ALL WORKED OUT:)
We ordered a nugget tray and sweet tea and lemonade. If you click on the bottom right pic you will laugh at my face which shows that the lemonade was TART-er than I was expecting:)
Happy times…everyone LOVES Chick-fil-A chicken!
(the cows told us to;)
Ha! Who are those young kids—are they old enough to have a baby??!!
Calista is one of Susie’s best little friends…they don’t get to see each other often enough… Everyone is getting ready for cupcakes! Everyone picked theirs out right away… And Gracie ate her gummy right away:) JJ, again surrounded by girls and eating his butterfly cupcake…doesn’t seem to mind a bit!
Opening presents…some “My Little Pony” books, a “bath doll” that goes in the bath with you and has bath toys and a hoodie towel for when she comes out.
“That’s not my dolly” touch and feel book. I know the boy version of this series, but hadn’t seen any in the girl series. Thanks Carrie! She’s doing zerberts…one of her favorite things right now. I love her sense of humor…it reminds me of my mom’s who she is named after.
Another blessed day…
Susanne Elizabeth…you are a Gift from God and we CAN’T tell you this enough.

She loves colors like her Mama:) so she wore her “rainbow outfit” for her birthday…and preferred to pull herself up on the TV stand with her brother and watch his new favorite: Auto-B-Good.
This is also your first look at Susie’s birthday present to herself—a “shiner”…she was crawling on the bed at bedtime and when she got to the edge, she slipped and smacked below her eye. She was crying so hard, but I didn’t see where she was hurt until the next morning…tough girl. She went right for the same place the next chance she had!
We didn’t have her cake until the next day so our good friends and neighbors could be with us. We sang to her and put a candle in Mango ice cream…she LOVED it!
These are the decorating tools
(PAMPERED CHEF—BIRTHDAY GIFT FROM MY FRIEND ANITA—TOTALLY RECOMMEND)
and the pink, gray and white icing that helped me make…
A pink and white puppy:)
I made it modeled after a lovie Susie has…
“Thank you. I will take these two, please!”
“Yum, Yum. I like.”
“I have lots of sugar energy now…time to crawl around.”
These pictures miss the 4 sets of tiny hands that were all trying to open for Susie.
Also (bottom right)…I have no idea, but my face was funny enough…I just HAD to include it!
Princess dinnerware set:) and a “Sweet Pea Beauty…songs for Little Girls” from Veggie Tales—thanks friends!
But she loved the card most!
And we ended in the back yard with some swinging…
“Whoa Susie…here she comes.”
