We decided that this year Caty was going to have a small birthday party and not invite everyone under the sun that she knows. She also decided that she was going to have a “girls only” party. We tossed around the idea of going to Build-A-Bear but in order to have a birthday party there you need a minimum of 6 kids. The bears start at $10 – and of course since each bear needs an outfit we were looking at more like $15 per child. So we went with another route… JoAnns sell Build-A-Bear kits. I returned a few times with my 40% off coupons so we ended up getting the bears for about $8 each – we bought a total of 6 bears. Overall a pretty cheap idea for a party!
The birthday girl ready for her friends to show up
The yummy purple cupcakes –not that you can tell they are purple but she wanted the cupcake purple and not the frosting.
She got her very own digital camera
With Nana and Papa
With our 6 year old
With Kylie and Aubrey – these girls all met when they started preschool together when they were 3.
Joined by Natalie, Nana and Jinx – Natalie loves Jinx and wanted him in the picture. Nana tried ducking out of the picture but obviously that didn’t work

Time for presents – a new Tangled book to read
Didn’t get pictures of the other presents but she got 2 Barbies (which she absolutely loved and now sleeps with at night).
“Happy Birthday to you…”
Hanna loved the cupcake – but with no frosting – see how it’s kinda purple – actually more lavender, because I ran out of blue food coloring so we went with what we got.

Thanks to all of you that sent birthday wishes to our Caty!!
