A Birthday Party!

On Saturday we had Cora’s greatly-anticipated Hello Kitty birthday party! She was SOOOOOOOOO excited to have her party with her friends and cousins!!! She could hardly contain herself! We had invited all the girls from school (about 7), her  cousins and also friends from our small group. All said we had 17 kids (and that included Micah and Rebekah). The kids seemed to have a lot of fun, they were so well-behaved, and Cora was showered with a lot of wonderful gifts. I was shocked at what such nice things she got! She was blessed greatly by her friends!

Cora and I printed off some Hello Kitty coloring pages for her friends to color. It seemed to be a big hit!

My dad built this awesome soccer goal for Cora! It was a lot of fun for the kids to use at the party too!

I had planned another game, but it went over like a lead balloon, so we did "ring around the rosey" and "duck, duck, goose!" Those went much better!
