birthdays, birthdays and more birthdays!

Between Valentine's Day, birthdays of friends and Kyle's birthday, February is a special month full of celebrations.  
I love birthdays and I love the chance to celebrate in a special way.
First up was Estella's 7th birthday party
It was a tea party theme and there were a lot of little girls at the party.  We watch Estella in the mornings before school and it was very sweet of her to include Kennedy in her celebration.
Since it was a girls only party, our family went back over that night and enjoyed pizza and a movie so that Carter (and a couple neighbor boys) could help her celebrate, too.

Happy Birthday, Estella!

Next up was Jeff's birthday ~ they had gone up to the mountain that Sunday but rushed home in order to watch the Super Bowl.  Since Jeff and Kyle's birthdays are just a few days apart, we had the Borrevik's over for pizza, football and birthday cake.  It was a fun way to celebrate the guys.
Happy birthday, old man!

Estella's actual birthday happens to be the 6th, as well, so it worked out to have a special birthday breakfast for her and Kyle.  Cinnamon rolls and fruit!

Unfortunately, Costco doesn't always carry Cinnabon (who knew?!?), so we had to make do with QFC cinnamon rolls.  Had I been more on top of things, I would have attempted to make my own.  
Maybe next year.
Kyle's birthday was a little anti-climatic this year and I kind of felt bad about it.  Not only was it on a Wednesday, smack dab in the middle of the week, but Kennedy had ballet that evening and there just wasn't a lot of time to do much.
I got him a new driver, which he was trilled about and we did get Thai food for dinner but otherwise it was just another day.  We had a nice celebration with his parents on Sunday, so that kind of made up for it.  
Happy birthday, Kyle, I love you!

Kaitlin is 5!
Kaitlin also shares Kyle's birthday, but her party was the weekend after.
We celebrated with a beautiful, whimsical tea party at her house. 
Kennedy was very excited to dress up and play with her friends.
It was such a great party, each and every detail was perfect, and I enjoyed the time with my friends, too.

A Zeamer birthday wouldn't be complete without Kathy's darling (and delicious!) sugar cookies!

The table was so lovely, such a fun and fancy party for the girls

Painting nails...

and getting fancy!
Kathy had necklaces, bracelets, rings, ear rings, crowns and boas for the girls ~ such fun!

Beautiful birthday girl and her very talented mama
I always love to see what Kathy will come up with for the kids' parties.  She is so very gifted and creative and everything always looks wonderful!
Kaitlin was so happy!!!

lots and lots of treats ~ Katie definitely has a sweet tooth!

make a wish!
We had to light the candles twice and have Kaitlin blow them out again because Kathy's camera stopped working.  It was so funny to see Kaitlin a little confused at first, but then excited that she got to do it twice!

me and my best girl!
