|Julie let us borrow this Captain Hook outfit and Amelia could not stop jumping up and down when her daddy emerged in it.|
|Here are the girls' sweet faces when Jen and crew walked in.|
|Our precious pirate family. Like MY WHOLE HEART is in this photo.|
|ARGH, MATEY. She was giddy to see her G and Pa in costume.|
|Jessalyn held Elise QUITE awhile because she could not figure out why her dad had on the strangest wig...|
Back in November, Jen made an awesome, 3-D pumpkin cake for Meme's birthday and Amelia said, "If Aunt Jen can do that, she can make me a treasure chest cake." She even had me call Jen that night after we got home and ask her to do it. And, Jen is a perfectionist to the core and delivered this...
|Ross and Tom|
|Oh how I love this picture of Jake and Izzy. They are best friends on the show and Amelia was thrilled beyond thrilled that Ingrid chose to be him. Steph made the vest and it is a spitting image of Jake's.|
|This is the whole crew: Cubby, Izzzy, and Jake|
|Jen made the prettiest pirate ever.|
I was a little worried about Amelia opening her gifts because she was so excited that it was HER special day and HER presents and HER party. I had talked with her a little about letting her cousins/sister help and look at her toys, but didn't want to harp on it, because it was indeed her special day. However, I just couldn't believe how sweet and kind she was. Inviting the girls up to see her gifts. Asking if they wanted to help. Sharing what she opened almost immediately. That's the stuff tears are made of. So proud of my big girl.
|Cutest packaging by Aunt Steph, of course|
|HAHA Smee, Izzy, and Skully the bird-- loved their outfits|
|Henderson Crew plus one|
|New car from Meme and Pop! They couldn't come to the party due to Meme have shingles and being in incredible pain. Such a sad thing, but Amelia handled it very well and loved their gift.|
|Her new outfit face.|
She made a special wish, but wouldn't tell me!! My special wish came true. I prayed so hard for health on her party day and tons of energy and fun and excitement. I prayed that her kind heart would shine through and that her expectations would be exceeded. I prayed for a lasting memory of love and a house full of family. All of these prayers were answered and God's goodness was just poured out on my home during the party. I truly felt it. A pirate party fit for a princess.
