PInk invitatonal

Last month my daughter got to participate in the "Pink Invitational" gymnastics meet to support a breast cancer organization.

GK leotards was a sponsor, and each girl received a pink leotard to wear for the meet and take home. They got a lot of other loot as well. It was late at night (we were in the last group) but it was very nice. My daughter got a lead crystal trophy for 10th place all around. It really was a beautiful event. We were in another meet (we...I mean she, just because it consumes so much of MY time....) this month, but I didn't get any pictures (bad lighting). We have sectionals next week. nothing like a little pressure!

crafty party!

This year for my DD's birthday we decided to have it at Michael's. She wanted to invite her gymnastics team, and over the course of the year there have already been pool parties, a bouncy house party, one girl had hers at the barn and the girls got to ride the horses, we wanted to do something different.

So the girls decorated tote bags (they had a blast but I never realized exactly how loud girls can get!) and when there was extra time the lady who worked there had several other projects they could do. My daughter said it was the best birthday ever.

instead of a traditional cake, I made a cupcake tree. I used the idea from the Wilton cupcake book to use star shaped cookies on a cupcake stand, and we iced them in pink. I made cake decorations and a birthday banner using my cricut. It was a lot of work, but it was afterall, the best birthday party ever!
