A BERRY Special Celebration!

Cora’s birthday is coming up on Wednesday, but we celebrated on Saturday. She wanted to have a Strawberry Shortcake themed party and so we were all manners of pink, green and strawberry! It was a great time! We had most of her grandparents there, her cousins, aunts, uncles and friends from town. We borrowed a blow-up bouncy house  from a local church and that was wonderful entertainment for the kids–we had to force them out to do snacks, cake and presents! Interestingly enough, last year the weather was a bit rainy but in the 50s or 60s. This year we had SNOW on the ground and were quite cold! In any case, our little girl–who insists she is now a BIG girl!–was well-celebrated and is very loved and blessed! Enjoy some photos from the party!

The cake--When Cora saw it she said, "Mommy! It's soooooooo beeeeaaaaautiful!"

As soon as we were done singing and she blew out her candles she gave me a huge hug! She was so excited and cute!

Ben so badly wanted to be in the bouncy house, until he was put in, then we wanted OUT!
