Avery's 6th Birthday & Mermaid Room

Avery turned 6 last Friday.  We decorated her door after she went to bed, and put out some princess plates and birthday balloon for breakfast the following morning.

She requested blueberry muffins and bagels for breakfast.  The girl likes her carbs!

And just like that she woke up 6!

She had a fun day planned at school: field day!

I brought her lunch at her request (Chick-fil-A of course).  After lunch the kids were having snow cones so she was in heaven.

Back at home I was working furiously-with my mom's help-to redecorate her room as a surprise.
Her new desk arrived in the nick of time and Rob came home from work early to assemble it.

I think everything turned out well!

We finally got everything put together while my mom had Avery and Ben at the park after school.  She was very surprised and excited when she saw it!  She loves the bed canopy and desk/vanity (from Gigi and Pepaw) area in particular.  

It was time for a room update to a little bit more mature room and I think the colors and the ocean/mermaid theme is perfect for her!  Rob made the little stool and we got a mirror and painted it to match.  Most of the other things were found at Target, TJ Maxx, and Amazon.  The mermaid name decal was from Etsy.  It all came together nicely.

We went outside to try out her new scooter from Stephen and Tim.  Lets just say 10mph doesn't sound fast until you see your child whizzing down the sidewalk doing just that.  She crashed into the grass and was done with that for a while.

She was ready to go inside and try out her new Easy Bake Oven from Mimi and Papa.

She made a perfectly edible cake that she kindly shared with her brother.

All in all, I'd say she had a very nice 6th birthday!
