Chey's Party

Cheyenne's Birthday Celebration

We had a great time celebrating Cheyenne's sixteenth birthday. She invited her closest friends and even a couple of MY (younger) friends whom she loves and has known for years.

We began the celebration with lots of pizza, Dr. Pepper, and cake!
Cheyenne asked for a butterfly cake.....I tried hard not to make it too little girl-ish......what do you think? Thankfully, she very graciously said she loved it! So sweet!

After stuffing ourselves with way too much pizza and cake, Cheyenne opened gifts. Thank you to her sweet friends who blessed her with beautiful gifts.

She loved this new red purse!

A new sweater from Celeste and much needed jeans from mom and dad!

If you know Greg, you know that he takes his presentations very seriously. He began with sharing memories from Cheyenne's early childhood........followed with praise and thanks to our Heavenly Father for the young lady Cheyenne has become.

He's our big, sweet sap! We LOVE him!

Daddy presented Cheyenne with a new Bible with her name imprinted on the cover.

I wish I had taken many more pictures.......I should be fired from future picture taking. The fun didn't end here.....once we put the little ones to bed we filled the table with LOTS of snacks and drinks. Just when we thought we were too full for more, we managed to find room for Touchdown Taco dip, 1-2-3 dip, popcorn, chips, Spur's Fancy, candy, more Dr. Pepper, Starbucks Frappuccinos and ice cream. We snacked on goodies while we played a very competitive game of Worst Case Scenario and then settled in for a movie. I only made it about 20 mins into the movie before Mom had to throw in the towel and call it a night!

Cheyenne, I hope your day was special and memorable. We love you and thank God for sixteen wonderful years!

    WOW sounds like you guys had a ton of fun! I love the cake and the stylish purse. Happy Birthday Cheyenne.

  3. Awww...I loved all the pics. I can't believe that she is 16! It still feels like yesterday that she was a baby!

  4. HAPPY Birthday to a sweet spirited young women. I love the cake Candace! Is it from that book? Did you make the icing?

  5. Cheyenne has become such a beauty! Glad my girls got to celebrate with her...

  6. I remember when she used to balance on Greg's palm and he would throw her in the air and catch her. Does he still throw the younger ones like that???? Time flies by so fast as mothers. She is beautiful!

  10. Janelle,

    You are so sweet! I'm so sorry I've delayed the post for so long. There's been a series of events that have made it difficult to get the post done. I'm very eager to post it and I thank you for encouraging me by your interest. :-)
