Sister and CeeCee invited me on an absolutely marvelous getaway to Disney for her 8th birthday early last month. I still need to share all of those darling details. I loved every second of our magical, girly time.
CeeCee thoughtfully chose a bag full of treats from the Main Street Confectionary to continue the celebration at home with her brother and cousins!
And, back home, we set up a darling Classic Confectionary Celebration outside in my backyard! All of this was entirely Sister’s vision. I was just her “assistant.”
Y’all know how we love to doll up a store-bought cake! Well, we did just that for this $10 Publix confection.
CeeCee was particular about how everything was set out and displayed. She’s so little in many ways, but grown up in many others.
I must admit, it felt pretty magical to have these favorite sweets right at home!
See how we used the extra cotton candy here:
The birthday girl wore her gorgeous dress again for this occasion. It reminds me so much of one Mother made for Sister at about this age. I loved it SO SO much. She despised it – called it the Tooth Fairy Dress – and fussed constantly the couple of times she wore it. :-) The whole time I was wishing it were mine!
Back to the party… once everything was just right, it was time to call out the boys!
We sang happy birthday and CeeCee worked as hard as she could to blow out those EIGHT sparkler candles!
See how we dolled up her store bought cake here:
After dessert we had dinner! I know that’s the reverse order but if you can’t have cake before supper on your birthday, when can you?! Back when we did at-home hibachi for John’s birthday, Honey promised the younger kids they could all cook for their birthdays too! We used to always go out for this meal on birthdays but it has been so much fun to do it at home.
As always, the egg toss was a favorite. They now have a catcher, a backup catcher, a backup to the backup AND Elsa who cleans up the ground for any flying morsels that miss all three human mouths.
CeeCee cooked up a delicious meal!
Happy birthday, precious girl!!! You are so loved!!!
It’s hard to believe this child is eight. Time does fly, doesn’t it?
