Our plans for Elizabeth's party were to be very simple. She turned 4 for heavens sake, it doesn't need to be extravagant. Right? So, we planned a family party, a friend party, and then because I was too lazy to have all the family over on her real birthday....cake and ice cream on Sunday. Well, now that it is all over, I think maybe we should have just had 1 family party. Not that eating so many cakes isn't that fun...I mean who doesn't love cake? So here are the pics from the fun festivities.
Elizabeth blowing out her cupcake candles at our local park. It was so fun to have
the party at a park, and let the kids run around crazy there. It was also pretty fantastic to have so little clean up and preparations. Yippee.
Okay, I just thought this was sweet. Elizabeth got makeup from one of her friends for her birthday. Well, she spent much of Sunday making up her sister. Madeline is such a nice sister to let Elizabeth experiment on her.
This is the 2nd family party on Sunday. Dress ups are always necessary.
This is Tieg. Dress-ups aren't just for girls you know.
I know, these aren't in order. This is from the first family party, where not only family was invited, but a very special teacher. Madeline's 2nd grade teacher came over for the party because Elizabeth loves her and wanted her there. We're pretty blessed to have such a great teacher and friend.
Per Elizabeth's request, she had chocolate cupcakes and pink frosting for her birthday party. Oh yea, and fun sprinkles on top. Of course, she only told me about these important qualities the night before the party at 8:30 p.m. Way after I would venture to the store....luckily I have a super great friend that always bails me out when I need ingredients. (thanks Summer)
Bj made this beautiful (?) pinata. He wanted to try his hand at making one, and I was glad to let him. Go Bj. And, it really did look better in motion.
