fun was bloomin all around us

the favor pots, which I filled with seed packets, snail and butterfly magnets, bug stickers, candy





one of the uber cute cookies!





grandma and the birthday girl






two out of three cakes. the lady bug was little missy's. I had an adorable pink and yellow flower too, but somehow it missed the picture natzi. =(







I had the entire fence around our back yard adorned in these paper flowers!










butterfly bowling... so hard to get a good picture, but they were soooo cute!

(colored water in bottles, with tissue paper wings and pipe cleaner antennae)







Brigham pinning the lady bug on the flower













our dragon fly, that just didn't want to die... until one of the dads took a bat to it!

the madness of diving for candy begun!!
and her ladybug cake... what do i do?




she figured it out!!




some garden decor....








































the m &ms in the vase were such a tease !!














peanutbutter and jelly for the kids

















bee,butterfly,and caterpillar grams w/ yummy dip























caterpillers, of course!











ants on a log






















our garden spread. chicken salad sandwiches. macaroni salad in the pot,

pinwheel sandwiches that became snails with an olive head









































the birthday girl on her actual day. went to lunch with grandma, and uncle monkey. the hat stayed on for about 1.32 seconds!!LOL


she got lots of 'girly' things from grandma... all of pink, of course!! LOL















she got cleaned up and opened so many cute, cute things. we are so blessed to have family and friends who love and support our little T !!!

and even a birthday girl can cry if she wants to......

Look at all that wonderful food, what a wonderful idea.

Tatum look so cute (and a little messy) even when crying.

We had a piata at Lillee's party and had to cut it to get it to break.
