Our girl is 6. It doesn't seem possible that it has been 6 years since this girl joined our family.
She chose an owl theme for her party. We decorated a few days before the party so we could enjoy them. Natalie helped put them all up
For her birthday cereal Natalie chose generic Honey Bunches of Oats. That made me giggle.
On her birthday Natalie got to go on a field trip to Schnepf Farms so it was a fun-filled day for her!
She loved all of her presents--she was pretty spoiled!
For dinner she requested a few favorite things. Mac and cheese, grilled chicken, grapes and carrots and cucumbers.
The next day was her owl party!!
Put the owl in the tree!
Forest animal charades!

I asked Cyrena and her friend to be helpers at the party. They were specifically in charge of the scavenger hunt---they did such a great job!
The two helpers with their goody bags. The goody bags had little stuffed owls, owl rings, homemade owl hairclips, silly putty and some piñata candy
She was a very happy birthday girl!
-Natalie has a lot of enthusiasm and gets us all pumped up
-Since she has started school Natalie has received three Best Friends Forever necklaces. She loves being with her friends. So far she has impressed us by playing with lots of friends and not excluding anyone.
-Natalie loves all colors, but especially red, blue, and dark pink.
-At school and at home Natalie is a big helper and is always willing to share what she has.
-Natalie loves to try out new hairstyles on mom
-Natalie is a superb liar. She can trick me again and again. She has convinced me on more than one occasion that she got in trouble at school when she actually didn't!
-She is always quick to give a hug or a compliment--you can count on her to make you feel good!
-Natalie can be very very dramatic when she is in a bad mood. The other night she said she forgot how to fall asleep and said "what do I do? Just close my eyes and do NOTHING??!" She has the attitude of a teenager at 6 years old
-Natalie can be very shy. There are several men in our ward that try their darndest to get Natalie to say hi to them. She just shrinks away behind mom or dad.
-Natalie loves movies, spending time with her family, drawing and writing
-Natalie's favorite foods right now are: Corn Chex, crackers, grapes, popcorn, suckers, and PB&J
-She loves to paint fingernails and toenails. Her own and other's!
