I know everybody says it, but really, FOUR? What the hell?
We celebrated on Friday with Daddy, who had just flown in on a red-eye from DC, ready for a party! Let's ROCK AND RO-zzzzzzzzz... Daddy? Daddy?
We went to Sesame Street Live and played with favorite neighbor Emma.
Bella set the menu for dinner: macaroni and cheese, apples, ice cream. Then we opened presents. She got a new book, dollhouse furniture, a video game, some art supplies, and I had been working all week on a special present. A Princess and the Pea set!
It has twelve mattresses (just like in the Book), a pillow, princess, blanket, and of course, a pea!
I also made a bag, which is where I was finally able to use some of my previously hoarded Heather Ross princess and the pea fabric. So cute!
Today, we had the big Strawberry Shortcake party with 7 little friends. We really berried it up!
We had strawberry shortcakes, strawberry milk, strawberry lemonade, strawberry jelly beans.
That's the pinata we made. It took forever. But it was a big hit. BIG HIT! Groan!
I even made strawberry play dough, played strawberry music, and had strawberry air freshener. It was totally over the top and so fun.
We played a couple strawberry-themed games, but mostly the girls were having a great time playing with all my old Strawberry Shortcake toys. Which, luckily, my parents saved, so I don't have obsess over anything on ebay. Thank goodness.
Happy Birthday Bella!
