Tatum's 6th Birthday



This was the first year ever Tatum got a birthday party. More on that to come. Her actual Birthday is today, October 26th and I'm sad to say she is SO sick! Her fever yesterday hovered at 102.5 and was a couple times as high as 103.2. She didn't get to go to school and hasn't played with any of her birthday presents. Poor thing. She could either be sick on the couch watching TV or she could be sick in the movie theater watching a good movie and she chose the movies. We saw Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs and she loved it. I felt really bad she couldn't enjoy her birthday, thankfully her teacher said she could bring her treats to class another day. We had to cancel her family party of cake and ice cream this evening and instead our little family sang to her. We love this girly and are SO grateful she's in our family!





Now the fun part of her birthday...



Seriously, could she be any cuter? Nope! The theme she chose was: Angels. Not surprising. So angel she got. She's dressed, halo on, wings on, her hair is fancy, and she's ready for her guests.





Nonnie and Auntie Nina came for back up. I would have pulled my hair out without them!












A quick family photo shoot.



The angel and I.



















She requested that Nonnie come early to do her hair fancy. Nonnie does the best french braids and did not disappoint! Tater LOVED her hair do!


Tucker was in charge of helping with the balloons. After he did his balloons, Chris did the moving of tables, and a few family shots the boys were kicked out for the duration of the fiesta. GIRLS ONLY!


















The cake. I stressed about what to do for weeks and stayed up way to late the night before working on it but if I do say so myself it turned out pretty cute. She liked it, I liked that she liked it!








This poster was for the game, Pin the Halo on the Angel.



We thought these were pretty funny!















All the little angels making angel dust, alo vera gel and glitter mixed. ALL angels twinkle!











Not pictured is the game, Musical Clouds which was fun but the girls didn't quite get it. They wouldn't move unless they had a cloud to land on which made for a large angel jam. There were 21 little angels in attendance; I've learned that for the next party 21 is too big a number. Ten sounds more like it! She had a fabulous time and was full of smiles. She enjoyed herself and all her cute little friends.

Happy Birthday Tatum. Dang it that she is sick. I'm sure you will make it up to her. Kobi was so glad to be there, and extra sad to leave early. Her picture poster is perfect, so cute. You are a brave woman to have so many girls over. Way to go.
