birthday celebrations

welcome to abbey's room.

when abbey got home from ballet today i had done some updates to her room...

in her words....i want my room to be more paris~y.
changed her pale pink comforter to purple with bright pink and black pillows.

i added touches of black, with wall stickers of chandeliers, chalkboard, and a tree with birds.

some owls, black and white pictures, and an iron eiffel tower.
she really loved it and said it was perfect.

then some friends came over and we played games and had banana bread.



...opened gifts.



we had a lovely time celebrating.
happy birthday my precious girl.

Happy Birthday to Gorgeous Little Abbey. She is growing up SO fast. I love what you did to her room... Wow!!!

Hi Marmee......Abbey est bonne et belle....

Her room is just beautiful.....I have stayed in Paris many times, you have captured it so perfectly.

'Always kiss me Goodnight' made me swallow a little harder. Every child, no matter what their age, needs a hug and kiss goodnight from their parents.

Happy birthday has been a joy to watch you grow......

Happy Birthday, Abbey!

Marmee, you did a wonderful job on her room. I love the bird tree.

Meems said...

Oh. My. Gracious. Marmee.

You are just the most gifted at sprucing up & repositioning & designing to achieve a whole other feel and look. I thought for sure you had the tree, chandelier and birdies painted on at first. They are wonderful!

Having seen that paint in her room first-hand it is worth noting for your readers how absolutely beautiful and detailed it is. It would be a shame to cover over it. YOU have masterfully crafted a new "Paris room" with her exquisite wall paint in tact!!! Bravo! Abbey is one blessed little one (not so little anymore).

She is having quite the birthday celebration(s)!

Now what to do with Ariel?

hugs dear sister, Meems

Meems said...

... meant to say how clever of you to put the crystals on the chandelier... love it!

What a cutie! Blessed to have her, she is equally blessed to have you, dear Marmee. What little girl would not be elated with that Paris-y room :)
