i've said it before and i'll say it again...this girl knows how to celebrate. she let us know a few weeks ago that she would be planning and organizing her party this year. after all, she is seven now. i was more than happy to pass the party planning baton to my little miss and i think she did a pretty darn good job. i just helped set up before and clean up after. everything else was all madi. everyone had a great time painting faces, running around in costumes screaming at the top of their lungs and eating cherry cupcakes with cherry frosting with a cherry on top, cherry ice cream on the side and cherry limeade to wash it down. yep, she loves cherries just a little. we planned, we partied, we cleaned, we napped, we self-medicated. and like all good celebrations, the best part was the leftover cupcakes the next day. happy birthday madi belle. you are our favorite seven year old ever.
