First, welcome to the new blog! I’m still making a few minor tweaks here and there, but it feels good to give a fresh face to this almost 4 year old little corner of the web. I hope you enjoy it, and be sure to let me know if you have any problems. Now on to the birthday fun!
Can you believe our baby just celebrated her 4th birthday?! Happy Birthday Lauren!!
The weekend started off with a pretty big bash at school. There was cheesy pizza delivered for lunch and then Tinkerbell cupcakes and a birthday candle for snack. Afterward, we headed home with our life size Tinkerbell balloon and Lauren got to open her BIG gift from Grandma, a castle for the girls!
As you can see she was VERY excited about it!
She played with that thing all evening.
Until I finally had to force her to go to bed!
The next day was her birthday party. We had it at a place called Lil’ Chef in Raleigh and, although we kept it considerably smaller than her party last year, the kids still had a blast!
They got to decorate their own hat and then make Pixie pancakes and fruit fairy wands. Afterward they put on their custom apron favors and we adults all tried to get pictures until it was time for them to dance on out the door!
It was so cute, but let me tell you, THIS is what it looks like when you try to take a picture of eleven 4 year olds:
Saturday night, while Mommy went to a bridal shower, Lauren and Daddy went on another late night chicken nugget run!
On Sunday morning, we had breakfast and played with Gummy…
Until it was time to go to the Fresh Beat Band concert with Lauren’s best friend Zoey and her family!!
We had so much fun and the kids were super excited! We even ran into Lauren’s classmate Christopher!
So as you can see overall it was a GREAT weekend for our GREAT 4 year old!! Happy Birthday Lauren! We love you SO MUCH!
