Xio turned 8 this past Monday and so last weekend we had a birthday party for her. It was her very first real live birthday party. For the past three years her birthday was celebrated in a hospital, nursing home and then again in a hospital. So it was a pretty big event for her! She invited all her little girl friends and they had a great time.
I made rainbow cupcakes and found the cutest cupcake liners in the shape of flowers! How cool is that?
The girls made ATC's (artist trading cards) and had fun swapping them among themselves.
The big highlight of the day was the pinata. I found one that you have to whack with a stick and they must have worked on that thing for a half hour before getting all the candy and toys out of it!
