Lexie's 6th Birthday Parties

On Saturday, we celebrated Lexie's 6th Birthday with two parties!  The first one was for family and the second one was for friends.  We have such a big family and group of friends that we have to split them if we hold them at our house!

I felt bad that we were unable to book the library for her party, as originally planned.  I reminded her just how lucky she was to have TWO parties, and that made her happy.  She had a great day!

Lexie chose a bunny theme for her parties, in honor of her lovey, BunBun, that was the centerpiece on her cake!  This made shopping for decor and goody bag items very easy!

My parents arrived early for party #1, and we had Lily share our exciting news!  They were shocked, but very happy!!!  Lily wore her shirt all day to share the news with our family and friends!

After everybody got some food, Lexie got to open her presents then blow out the candles on her cake!

I have to admit, I've been really bad about taking pictures lately.  I honestly feel like absolute crap again, thanks to a 4th round of hyperemesis.  It was expected, but it's definitely hard to live with!  I did manage to snap a picture of each grandparent and great-grandparent.  I apologize to the rest of my family and friends!  I really hope that a good friend of mine that came got some good shots!

The first party ended with a fun Just Dance 4 competition.  I even got my pregnant butt up there for a bit! 

There was a bit of downtime between the parties, so Lexie and her BFF (my great-niece, Aubrey) played with her new toys until party #2 began.

I cleaned up AGAIN and set up for the next party.

Party #2 was even more crowded than the first.  I lost count, but I think there were around 20 kids in my house!  A group of big kids and a group of toddlers.  It was loud and chaotic, but the kids loved seeing their friends and I loved seeing mine!!!

It was a long, busy day, but Lexie had a great time with those she loves the most!!!

It was fairly late when the last person cleared out. Aubrey stayed over for a sleepover, along with our friend, Dom. The kids played while I cleaned up the entire house. It wasn't long before the sweet birthday girl crashed!

I would say that's a sign of a successful birthday celebration!

  12. Wow you are totally super mom! I don't know how you manage when you are feeling so badly! I have thought of you through the whole time I was sick (til 17 weeks) and wondered how you could do it. You are a lot stronger a person than I. LOL Congratulations again!!!

  15. I was happy to be able to help you celebrate Miss Lexie! I do have a ton of pictures from party 2 - I'm getting caught up! Will share very soon! I'm sure I would have stopped at baby #1 if I'd had all that while pregnant! May it at least go fast!!
