In May Hailey had a birthday.

If you saw in earlier posts for Hailey's 9th birthday she picked a TROLLS theme party! It was nearly impossible to find Trolls birthday supplies, but with some help from Pinterest we figured it out! 

Hailey was able to take cupcakes to school on her birthday and all the kids were thrilled when the Trolls cupcakes arrived! 

Hailey's grandma works at M&M world and had some M&M's personalized for Hailey. This was a huge hit! Such a fun idea and totally worth it if you can use someone's employee discount! LOL! 

Hailey had mentioned that she wanted to see her name in balloons and when she came home from school, that is what she saw! So fun! 

 Every party is a lot more fun with balloons right? 

I received the most thoughtful text message from our friends at Raising Canes! They invited our whole family to come down for Hailey's birthday. They even had gifts and a cake for Hailey. So fun that all the employees sang to her. Love the Raising Canes family that we have. They really love Hailey SO much!! 

For Hailey's actual party the next day we had a lot to do starting very early in the morning and even before that. I always apply for an Icing Smiles Cake and this year when I did they had told me the rules have changed and I'll just paraphrase " there are a lot more hoops to jump through when applying." I did end up getting all the proof and paper work needed just in time for us to be granted a cake. Look how wonderful it turned out!! Thank you to Nancy's Sweets and Treats for donating this cake! 

We needed somewhere to have the party but we couldn't afford an outrageous priced place. We tried Dave and Busters but it was SO expensive and there was no offer for any discounts from them. We knew Hailey wanted a pizza party so we ended up at Peter Piper Pizza. Everyone there was terrific and we were able to have the party there without having to pay a price per person since I did all the decorating myself. It was the perfect place! 

When Hailey arrived to see her party she was beyond thrilled. Each child that passed by us would ask if they could be a part of our party. Even the staff had said that our party was one of the more extravagant ones they had seen! 

Like I said, lots of help from Pinterst and Target! 

I was so glad I could put this party together for Hailey even after my radiation therapy treatment. I was in pain and exhausted but I wanted her to have the best party! 

More M&Ms!!

Thank you to everyone who sent gifts to Hailey off of her Amazon wish list! We love that you love Hailey! 





One of the gifts that Hailey was so excited for was LEGOs! Who knew that Hailey would love LEGOs so much! We had many family nights helping her build and play with Legos!
