For Padme's first ever birthday party with friends, she wanted a chocolate cake, not a decorated cake, and a dress up/water party. So, this is what she got! She loves this chocolate sheet cake (recipe from the Pioneer Woman). Very plain looking, but delicious!
Her little friends all dressed up in dress up clothes. The boy is Indiana Jones!
And the water party was after the presents and cake and homemade ice cream. Here Padme is arming herself with water balloons.
The water slide was a hit as well.
And no party is complete without a pinata and a bunch of candy.
She had a great time and was looking forward to her brothers coming home after being gone on a mission trip and the family party that night.
I am a child of God, a wife of 20 years, a homeschooling mom of 6 wonderful children, a daughter, a sister, and a friend.
My family moved last year 500 miles away from home where we had a wonderful life with family, friends, and church family. We are trying to find our way and settle down in our new home. I keep looking for a new normal, but God has a sense of humor, and I am not sure it exists.
I started this blog as a way to let our family and friends at home know a little about what we are up to in our new place, but it has become a scrapbook for me of our life and what the kids have been up to.
