Melissa's birthday party!

My good friend Melissa's birthday was on the 9th of this month. Her mom was in from Hawaii and wanted to do something for her birthday. Since it was Sunday, I suggested to have a spaghetti dinner at my place. It turned out to be so fun! It was so fun to finally return at least one favor to Melissa! Melissa has done so much for me and my family. She really is a good friend. She is one of the best people out there!

I made cupcakes to make sure we had enough cake for everyone...

because I made this small Red Velvet cake for her! This was her request! It was one of the yummiest cakes I have ever had and no I didn't make it from scratch, it came from a box!

I taught Ayla how to wrap presents!

 I let her use some of her new skills she has been learning, like cutting paper!

She did a great job!
We actually had two people's gifts to give that day, Melissa and my other friend, Amy, so Ayla wrapped 4 presents almost by herself (I had to help her a little.) Then Ayla made cards for Amy and Melissa! She did the same kind of card for both of them. It was like the one she made me for my birthday!

We had a really good turn out! It was so fun to see so many people there that love Melissa! She deserves it!

Here is Amy, Melissa (the guest of honor) and her boyfriend, Aaron!

Now it was time for presents!

I let Ayla give Amy and Melissa their presents she wrapped and cards she made for their birthdays!

Melissa opening hers!
We gave them both their favorite candy and a cute little frame that said, "Dream!"
The loved them especially the cards Ayla made!

A card!

She got a elephant that was from Jamaica from Amy!

And a new camera from Aaron!

Here is the street view from all that came! All the cars on the street parked were people at the party for Melissa!

It was so great to celebrate Melissa and to see that she is loved by so many!
