A's Star Wars Cake
As you guys know, A turned 13 yesterday. I am still trying to process that, our first teenager! We celebrated her birthday on Saturday with a Star Wars themed birthday party. She dressed up in her Rey costume and had such a good time with family and friends. 2016 was a really challenging year for our family, especially A, and it was so fun to celebrate her and her life. I am so blessed to be her Mom. Enjoy the photos!
David went with a 3D effect, so fun.
A and her cake!

The food spread
I had a lot of fun with the food for this party. We served Princess Leia buns, green/blue/red light saber pretzels, Storm Trooper deviled eggs, fruit/veggie trays, various chips and dips, Strom Trooper Chex Mix, etc.
A and B actually made most of these!
Princess Leia Buns
I bought prepackaged Chex Mix and then used a food coloring marker to make Storm Trooper marshmallows and added them.
And of course there was Yoda Soda - just Sprite mixed with Lime Sherbet.
We borrowed a projector and watched The Force Awakens.
Thanks so much to everyone who made it!!
And a huge shout out to everyone who has stood by us this last year and loved on us and our darling girl. I don't think there is a way to thank everyone enough. I always think of our birthday parties as a celebration of our children's lives and this one just seemed extra special with everything since the accident. I am so grateful for family, friends, and a huge community of people who love!!
