My baby girl is 7! She wanted a birthday party where her friends brought presents. This was really important to her and so even though I prefer no-gift parties, I didn't request "your presence is present enough. Please no gifts." And Maeve was thrilled! We glazed ornaments, ate pizza and cake and the girls played. It was a very successful party. Maeve enjoyed herself so much - no complaints!

And here's my girl on the morning of her birthday enjoying a pancake breakfast and more presents. It's always a relief to me when a birthday is done and dusted and my kiddo is happy.
