Fairybirds. Our party.

December 17, 2013



This past weekend we had three little friends over, their mamas and both my mom & Chris' mom (Meme & Monga) for Ainsleigh's Fairybird party. It was a small group for a private book reading and little celebration.... words really can't describe how special this day was for our family. 

It started out and each little girl got a pair of wings and a headband. (Aiden went and got his Nike soccer headband so that he could hang too). They sat down in our living room by the Christmas tree and an explosion of colorful decorations to hear this precious & beautiful story.

I was immediately drawn to this book because the message is to teach children Giving, Love, Kindness...everything that we work to instill in our little ones daily. I have such a love and appreciation for art and for color and this book is so whimsical and beautiful....it's true magic. 

After the reading the kids sat down to work on their Giving Craft and all did such a beautiful job. Seriously they were so cute y'all! And then just for fun (even though her birthday is in September) we let Ainsleigh blow out candles and everyone had lemonade, heart sandwiches and cupcakes! Swoon!

The book has such a beautiful message and the entire day was just incredibly sweet & precious. It blessed each of us so much.
Thank you SO much Fairybirds, we are HUGE fans!

You can purchase the book here// and watch a darling video here

  17. I was not blessed with children but God has given me a full life in other ways, so I am okay. I so enjoy your posts because, if I did have little ones, I would want to teach them in this way. We are all "flesh, " so if we impart what Jesus wants us to be like early on, children can embody the fruits of the spirit as they grow up. Ainsleigh captures my heart with those dimples and blonde curls. Her tenderness with God's small creatures is something to behold. You have one beautiful family, my friend.

    2. I forgot to ask: Did Ainsleigh have anyone in mind to give her sweet sparkly candle?

  18. This is so adorable! I did a similar party for my daughter a few years back. I got her the book of fairy houses that is amazing! Each of the girls at the party made a fairy house to bring home using the book as inspiration. Even as an adult these gorgeous houses made of nature where so magical and whimsical! You never get too old for fairies:)

  19. Such a wonderful idea and it turned out beautifully! So much love in these photos. I wrote about this idea in a special place in my journal so that when I have kids I can do something similar to this!
