I had the lithotripsy last Tuesday and have come a long way since then. I still have a stent, which is very uncomfortable and painful at times. Each day gets a little better, but this whole ordeal has had me laid up for too long! When I tried to sit and relax on the patio this past Sunday, I found myself up and pulling weeds. I knew I would pay for that later, and I did. The rest of the evening was shot.
In the midst of all this, we celebrated Katie's birthday and I actually made her a cake! All I know is that my strength had to have come from God!
I found the Flynn poster printable on-line and the lilacs were cut off my bush. The boat on the cake with Rapunzel and Flynn is a toy from purchased at the store.
I found this iron skillet in my cabinet and knew it would be perfect for Katie's party since Rapunzel used a frying pan as a weapon! We put peanut M&M's in it that I found on clearance after Easter. They colors were perfect. The purple flags with yellow sunbursts were also a printable I found on-line.
Katie loved her gifts. She got two new American Girl dolls (one from each set of grandparents) and some accessories. She also got some clothes and a few other things from the family. I did the best I could to make her day special and as you can see from the pictures, she had a great birthday! I can't believe she is 9.
