Sheridan turns 7

Actually, Sheridan's birthday was last month. And the girl showed great maturity in waiting to have a party when I could be here. On her actual BIRTHday Richard took she and a friend to a fun play place in Rsvl for the day. It filled in the gaps until Friday when we celebrated with a big BUTTERFLY PARTY!

First, we started on the ping pong table stamping t-shirts with butterfly sponges! These girls are so creative!

Next, we played a little butterfly matching game...

Next we played this little game of unwrapping "cocoons" to find what was inside.

We decorated butterfly cookies next. You'd think finding a cookie cutter for this would've been easy but I waited until the last minute and finally had to put out a request on Facebook for some help. No kidding, one of my friend's husbands picked one up for me at Hobby Lobby in Rsvl. I love this very thing about living in a small town. The cookies were a hit!

On to some of the easiest and CUTEST cupcakes I have ever made. Seriously, I copied the idea and the instructions from the internet and it was so easy!

What's a 7-year old party without some cartwheels before the gifts?

Sheridan needed a new Panther shirt with her brother's number on it! She's ready for football season!

All in all, it was a success!
Jadyn, Parker, Rylie, Anna Grace, Madison & Sheridan! Two of Sheridan's sweet friends couldn't come but we agreed to have them over during the summer!

This is the best part!: Our family all together celebrating the gift of another sister!!
