Our Baby Phoebe's 7th B-day!

Phoebe's birthday this year landed on a Sunday so she celebrated her birthday in school on Friday. This year she chose to hand out juice and balloons to her classmates. 
We celebrated some of Phoebe's other b-day celebrations the night before, like our visit to IHOP & Coldstone. Dinner at IHOP was pretty empty and pretty darn enjoyable, in fact it may have been the funnest family dinner out we have had yet. Everyone was super well behaved, ate well and the food was really yummy! At cold stone I admit the kids were a bit more irritable due to the fact they were already kid of full and they didn't want to sit anymore, but most of us still enjoyed our yummy treat. 
I had to sneak in one last 6 yr old picture as I tucked in miss Phoebs the night before.
We started Phoebe's birthday a little different this year, we had chocolate pancakes and only open one present in the morning, since we had 9 am church (we didn't want fights to leave for church). Phoebe opened up and super cute dress Grandma/pa Potts sent.
After church & right after dinner Phoebe got to open up the rest of her gifts, she said it was pretty hard to wait the whole day, but as for us parents it was sweet far less fighting over new toys! Phoebe got most of what she wanted, walkie talkies, dress-ups and frozen books to name a few., 
Phoebe also requested a frozen cake and since her birthday was on a Sunday we made her cake this year, which is something I haven't done since her first birthday, which was also on a Sunday. We had blue velvet cupcake with blue lemonade frosting and crystal snowflakes. It wasn't the fanciest cake ever, but she LOVED it!
For the last pic of her birthday Phoebe modeled her new fox PJs and slippers.
I might be bias but she is just the cutest little 7 yr old ever. I am in total shock that next year she will be old enough to be baptized!
