Everyone who hears these words of Mine and puts them into practice is like a wise man who built his house on the rock. The rain came down, the streams rose, and the winds blew and beat against that house; yet it did not fall, because it had its foundation on the rock. Matthew 7:24-25

Happy Birthday, Faith

Our family spent this last holiday weekend celebrating cousin Faith’s 8th birthday.  Faith had a small, all be it, lively party at everyone’s favorite pizzeria!!

Here’s the beautiful birthday girl.  Did you notice her cute corsage?  Her crafty dad made it just for her.  Way to go, Daddy-O!

Miss Lucy never gets tired of cheese pizza.  Come to think of it, I have yet to meet a kid who gets tired of pizza.

I had the privilege of getting to make Faith’s birthday cake.  With total creative freedom, I decided to try out one of those ruffle cakes I’ve been seeing on Pinterest.  I loved how the cake turned out. I’ll post later with some more pictures of the cake, but today is all about the party!

O.K.  So maybe just one little pic of some cake.

Time for presents!  Lucy was a little confused because there weren’t any presents for her.  She’s still got Christmas on the brain.

Mom helped the birthday girl try on her new watch.

I found myself taking tons of photos of the kids.  They were too distracted by the party to notice me snapping pictures of them.  Candid shots always make the best pictures.

This little sweetie lost a tooth while eating her pizza.  Now when I say “lost,” I mean lost.  For a while she was sure she had swallowed it, but luckily Ty found her tooth on the floor underneath the table.

Not sure who this monkey belongs to.  He sure is cute though.

Little Lucy, still working on that pizza…

As if the table cloth, streamers, and balloons didn’t give it away, Ty had to make a reserved sign to put on the party “tabel.”

Grammie helped Lucy eat her cake and ice cream.

When they were done with their pizza, all the kids headed outside for a game of freeze tag.  Then we rounded them all up for a group picture.  It’s amazing, but I actually got several shots of them all looking at the camera…at the same time!
