Valentine's tea party

We love inviting friends over to decorate sugar cookies with us around Valentine's Day every year. This year was fun because our little set up was very reminiscent of the first year we hosted it in our little Malaga apartment. Apparently Ellie was very excited to help plan for it and bake with me this year because many adults we know came up to me to ask about how Ellie's tea party went afterward. She had gone around telling anyone and everyone who would listen all about it.
I love those little duo. I hope they always stay so close.
Same picture we took at our first Valentine sweets party three years ago.
Everything Valentine's is just so pretty
Big chocolate Oreo lips we made that were quickly devoured
Decorate two, eat one and repeat was Kenny's philosophy.
Bruce pretty much slept through the party, but was excited to find a table full of sugar when he woke up
The kids invited Felix and Carolina over who are a perfect brother sister match up for them. They all four play so well together.
Carolina was in heaven, as she repeatedly told us.

Ellie's watercolor birthday party

Ellie's sixths birthday party was perfectly Ellie and so much fun for our favorite little six year old. She wanted a watercolor birthday party with lots of gold this year. Then she also decided she wanted dogs at her party so we managed to fit those in as well. She invited a few of her best friends from her kindergarten class and we also had uncle Mikey's family and the Sanders over as well.
Ellie was pretty excited to use fingers from both hands to make her age. I love that since she lost her second front tooth three days before her birthday her tongue seems to find its way into all her pictures now.
Six gold candles all in a row.
Cake pop gems we made

We bought little blank white plush dogs for the kids to paint with their watercolors. They all turned out so adorable. Ellie is so proud of hers and all the gold glitter she added to it.
