Party Time

Haley, Kaya, Kirsten, Lanie, Melody, 2 or more, Xyra

[Xyra Note: I apologize for the lighting in the following pictures. I couldn't figure out if I wanted flash or not. Sometimes it was okay without and sometimes better with.]

Blow Out the Candles

Wow! This all looks fab-u-lous!
(singing) Happy birthday to you. Happy birthday to you. Happy birthday dear, Melody. Happy birthday to you!
(overlapping) Blow out the candle. Make a wish. Don't tell us though.
Who wants which kind of cake?
(overlapping) Lemon! Chocolate. Chocolate Peanut Butter. Yellow. (laughing)

Opening Presents

Let's go to the couch for presents.
Do the green one first!
Oooo! A shirt and vest. Cute.
Turn it around.
Very nice.
This one next!
Cute shoes!
Now this one. I love the wrapping.
Neat. More shoes and argyle socks!
Mine next!
Great sparkly bag!
Too pretty to wrap, but there's more. Open it!
A HEDGER! He's cute!
And a skirt and ribbons! Thank you, Kaya!
You're welcome.
This is a cute box.
Love that bow! I think you should wear it. (giggling)
Addy's Summer Plaid! So pretty!
(The apron needs to be ironed.)
I love this! Thank you. Thank you. Thank you for all my great gifts!

  1. Happy Birthday Melody! I'm not sure about this, but I think they all wore purple to show it was Melody's special day? Is her favorite color purple?

  2. Happy Birthday Melody! Is it that they all have something purple on?

    1. Thank you! Yes, that's it. Everyone is in purple.
