Birthday Parties


   Ashley turned 7 in October.  Ashley wanted a Minecraft party.  Ashley is obsessed with the game minecraft.  Grandma was nice enough to let us have the party at her house. I searched pinterest for weeks.
   I wanted to have a bounce house - I thought I can just rent one from a local store and put it up with no problem.  When I went to rent the bounce house.  They told me make sure you have a truck.  I made sure we had a truck.  I went to go get it and the bounce house was so heavy.  We about never got it out of the truck and into the side yard.  You needed a army to move it.  They really should not rent this bounce house to a single mother.

Except the kids had a wonderful time.  All the work was worth it. 

We had a great minecraft cake from

 I also won a party from Kona Ice it's a shaved ice truck.  We followed the Kona Ice truck around all summer.  Ashley was so excited to have the truck at her birthday party.  It is also at Illini home football games for street fest. The kids loved getting shaved ice.

I love this picture of the group - we are so blessed with great friends.  Little D in the middle melts my heart.  He enjoyed the day also.

Kona ice was so sweet.  They gave Ashley a birthday bag and a t-shirt.  She looks so big in this picture.

I think they had a wonderful time at the party.

Ashley was so happy at her birthday party.  Ashley is so full of life. I can't wait to see her grow up into a beautiful young lady.  I sometimes wish I had a crystal ball so I could see into her future.

I need to step back and remember -

Jeremiah 29:11 For I know the plans I have for you" declares the LORD, "plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and future.
