We started Caroline's birthday with a doughnut family breakfast and she LOVED her first doughnut. Once breakfast was done, it was time to get ready for the party. I want to say a HUGE thank you to Ben and my mom- without their help, the party would not have been such a success! :) Ben and my mom helped with EVERYTHING and I am truly grateful. I would also like to send out a second thank you to Brigette, Al, and Sally Anne for helping us with the finishing touches of the party set-up. Brigette iced all the cupcakes and made the signs, Al helped prepare all the drinks and help Ben pick up last minute party supplies, and Sally Anne kept the girls entertained while we finished setting up.
Once the party got started, the big kids went to the basement to decorate pumpkins. After the pumpkin decorating, we enjoyed lunch and the kids played in the basement. We finished the party with Caroline's cake and cupcakes for all the kids and adults. It was such a great day, thank you to everyone that helped us celebrate!
Ps. There are about 9284 photos, hope you enjoy!
Good morning Caroline!
