penelope's sweet as pie party.

I am going to give myself a pat on the back for taking a lot more photos of Penelope's party than I did of Elliott's. While I didn't get the Pinterest-worthy set up of the dessert table, I was thrilled with our Sunday evening dinner party. Crockpot chili & barbequed grilled cheese sandwiches, pumpkin spice cake with cream cheese frosting, and pie, pie, pie! We had a cherry pie, an apple pie, and a pumpkin pie in fact, and there were no leftovers. I tackled my second-ever attempt at an apple pie very late Saturday night and had my mom & sister help with the decorations. I wanted to go simple, but when it came right down to it there was a need for a little gold glitter. So I went with it. Please ignore my dead grass and Penelope's filthy moccasins. Ha!

Happy Birthday again my sweet girl. I hope you enjoyed your party as much as I did planning it for you!
