Dorothy's B.A.B.W. party!!

I still can't believe little Dorothy is 6! I asked her what party she wanted and she immediately yelled, "Build-a-Bear!!" So we decided to do a cousin's only party at build a bear! Dorothy LOVED every minute of it!!! The kids had such a blast and Dorothy felt so special!! She is such a wonderful little girl and has brought so much joy and happiness to our lives! We are grateful for the blessing of raising this choice spirit!
The birthday girl dressing her bear!

Welcoming everyone at the party!

Choosing a bear!

Picking hearts!

Playing games!

Stuffing their bears!

Washing their bears!

Mommy and Dorothy

The gang after making their bears!

Her cake (yes it took me a long time and I needed a lot of help from my husband the engineer who had to add supports and helped figure out how to keep if from falling over!)

Opening presents!

Getting ready to blow out her candles!
