Lexi's Birthday

Despite Lexi having a rough birthday this year, she had a great party Saturday, December 11th.  The beginning of the month was very busy for us so, I didn't plan her birthday party for that time.  Her birthday was November 28th, the Sunday after Thanksgiving.  I usually have her birthday the Saturday after Thanksgiving but, it was just sooo busy with shopping and then, Lexi became very sick.  She ran high fever the entire weekend and the beginning of the week.  On her birthday if anyone would tell her happy birthday, she would get upset.  I was finally able to give her a birthday party but, everyone else was getting sick.  I thought she wouldn't have anyone at her party.  I made her cake the night before.  I cut out Jessie the Cowgirl with the Cricut Cake to go on top of her cake.  When I started to put it on the cake, it fell completely apart!!!  I was soooo agravated.  I could only think, "What could possibly happen next?!"  I started all over and cut out Jessie and put it on the cake.  Despite all the problems, the cake turned out great and she had a great party. 
Here is her cake...

Here is Lexi blowing out the candles... (with the help of big sister, of course)

We played a game that my oldest daughter, Olivia, thought of creating.  It was pin the braid on Jessie.  We made some braids with yarn, put a piece of paper through the top part with the childs name on it, and used part of the table cloth for the Jessie.  The table cloth was longer than my table so, I was able to cut one section off and use it for this game.  The kids loved it. 

Here is one of the goodie bags.  I made it very simple.  I just cut out the Jessie like on the cake and attached it to some white lunch bags.

I also made a birthday banner but, I don't have that picture uploaded yet so, as soon as I get it uploaded, I will add it to this post. 

Lexi's favorite part.. opening the presents...

Thank you, everyone, who made Lexi's birthday a success.  She was very happy.  Can you tell that she likes Toy Story???  Thank you for looking.
