Celebrating the 5 Year Old!!

It's true, she's going to be 5 in just a few days. How could that be??

And in true Hunter fashion, we partied it up!  Julie asked for a "girl party" this year.  But we couldn't just leave it at that because we have so much amazing family who we LOVE to celebrate with.  So last night we had a pizza party for the family.

Of course there were cupcakes.
And a birthday girl in a pretty dress!  Memere curled her hair and painted her nails for the occasion.  She was in heaven!
This soon-to-be Memere was getting a little cuddle time in. Sadie didn't mind.  She was also wearing her party dress.

I LOVE this silly picture of Lauren and Memere!!! I can't believe she is going to be 1 this week!!!!  Such a sweet girl!
The crowd, singing maybe?
Lauren got a bunch of cuddles from everyone.  She was a party girl!  Gearing up for her party tomorrow I think.
She got them all!
Everett and Christina cheering for Julie.
Loving the presents, of course.

Happy girl got her own wallet.  Notice her fingernails are different on each hand.
After lots of fun with the family, we came home to get ready for Julie's "girl party".  The table was set, we just needed some friends!
Sadie was ready to party.
Andy and one other brother (who was about 10 and a very good sport) were the only boys at the party.  As you can see, Andy is also a good sport.
The girls enjoyed their lunch.....mostly they ate Cheetos.
And they got to decorate their own cupcakes.  There is something fun about putting on your own sprinkles.  Most the girls made their mom's cupcake too, and dads, and one for their siblings at home.....way more fun than just eating them!
Audrey enjoyed hers....
Anna and Julie both eating candy (after their cupcakes) they got out of the pinata. 
Then it was present time again!
It was a group effort!
Julie has an awesome group of friends, most we have known since birth, but a few came from her school too. They are such nice girls and their parents are super sweet! I hope she continues to make such great friends.

I think we have sufficiently celebrated her birthday, but for an extra special birthday, and a family vacation, we will be going to Disneyland for a couple days this week!!! Yahooo!!!  I can't wait since the kids have never been and they have no idea what they are in for!

So Happy Birthday big girl!!  We love, love, love you!!!
