I made a yummy raspberry punch for the party. The color looked so pretty through the punch bowl! I love parties!
Trey was his normal "always hungry" self.....he kept trying to sneak some peanut butter kiss cookies. Too bad for him that both Lanie and Harper designated themselves the 'cookie police' and were keeping a very sharp eye on him. Lanie had to come to the cookies' rescue quite a few times before the party started! If she and Harper had not been watching, I am pretty sure there would have been nothing but crumbs left for Isabelle!
Since most of our baking was sweets, we decided to order pizza from Ledo's. All us girlzies LUV Ledo's pizza and Trey, well.....he'll eat anything you put in front of him! I was worried the pizza wouldn't arrive before Isabelle but it arrived about 15 minutes before she did! Yay!
Just after the pizza delivery guy left, Cindy walked in and exclaimed "I bought some Heartbucks treats!" Boy does Cindy know us girls! Nothing better than Heartbucks Lattes.
Just a few minutes later, McKenna burst through the door!! "She's here!! She's here!!" "Hurry everybody, she's coming!!"
McKenna no sooner got through the door and turned around when Isabelle walked through the door!
SURPRISE!!!! WELCOME, ISABELLE!!!!
I know this sounds corny but she is exactly as I had pictured her in my mind! She has lovely long blonde hair that she had pulled back off her sweet face so we could see her pretty hazel eyes.
I immediately ran to give her a big hug!
Next in line for a big hug was McKenna.....and Meatloaf! Poor Meatloaf, all he really wanted was someone to play "balloon" with. I think he was looking at Isabelle as 'fresh meat'.....someone who might fall for his big, sad eyes and give in to his incessant begging.
McKenna and Isabelle seemed to really hit if off talking about their love of music. As I left to check on the punch, I could hear them both talking about gymnastics and ballet and how it's a lot of hard work to keep up school work and do well at your sport.
When I came back with some of my yummy punch, I found Lanie and Isabelle talking. I was really happy to see them giggling and laughing together. Lanie was really looking forward to meeting Isabelle in person.....maybe even more than me! So, McKenna and I gave Lanie & Isabelle some private time and we talked about all the things we wanted to ask Isabelle about during her visit. I must say though, we were anxious to have all four of us GOTY girls spend some time together. We can wait though.
Well, at this point of the day - or should I say morning! - I am exhausted. From all the party preparations to cleaning up and then organizing all the photos.....I am just pooped! I am afraid that my school work might suffer even more than it already is going to if I stay up any later. So, I am going to have to go to bed now but I promise, when I get home from school tomorrow and finish all my homework, I'll post more party photos. Nightie-night! ~Saige ♥
