Christmas 2017

Christmas was pretty sweet this year... seems like just yesterday we were writing letters to Santa and cooking Christmas food... It was Julien's 1st Christmas which is always just magical... I know he's little and doesn't really understand but I know that he feels the magic... and gosh it's so cute how his big sisters make sure that he knows what Christmas is... I loved listening to them explain the Elf to Julien as well as helping him tell Santa Claus what he was wishing for...
Our house is under construction and yes, we are living in it... so it was a little bit crazy but it was still beautiful and there was so much Christmas magic in our little home... I made cozy little corners and hung Christmas pines as well as twinkle lights wherever I could... it did the trick...

Let's Flamingal Cecilia!!!

awe wowieeee what a fun party we had for Cecilia!
Our house is currently under construction! Like big time! So a cozy backyard party was not in our stars... we asked her what her dream party would be and she pretty much had this for her vision...
She wanted a beach party right by the water with all of her favorite friends! Sandcastle making contest was high on the list and tropical flowers and pineapples and flamingos! So fun!
The weather was a dream come true... the kids even had a little swim... on DECEMBER 23!!!
We played, celebrated, sang, ate so much food, even watched the sunset... and then lit a lantern for her... this party was magical!

I had so much fun with all the little details... that is where my heart comes out with parties... I just love special thoughtful little hints! ... it was a little bit tricky this year with half of our house missing... but with the help of Mattias & my parents it was a success! My mom made so many fun decorations! We had a lot of fun putting this all together! The end result... one happy little girl! Happy 9th Birthday!!!

flamingos & pineapple fun!
