Lucy got to have a party this year - remember, we are on the every 4-year plan for friend-parties. It was a fairy party and she invited 4 friends - Lila age 4, Ellie age 4, Jenna age 3, and Sarah age 10. :) Sarah is our sweet and loved-by-all-my-kids neighbor. She was camping with her family at their cabin and even drove down for it - for Lucy's sake. What a gal!
The girls came and we face-painted their cheeks. They got to choose what type of fairy to be:
Then it was time for dessert. We made these little "fairy teacups" and the girls loved them. The cups were filled with frosting and the girls could dip their strawberries in it - or use their knives to spread it - or not eat the strawberries at all, like Lucy.
Then we made pixie-dust necklaces (which are adorable) and Lucy opened her gifts. All of which she loved.
The girls played, the boys went to pick up our sailboat (more on that a little later), and I cleaned. Then we got ready for our ward party, a 1950's Sock Hop.
The sock hop was super fun - the kids LOVED it. Miles got to DJ it with his record player and 1950s record songs. That was fun. The girls loved dancing, doing the twist, jump roping, hula hooping, etc., etc. Emmy is the cutest hula-hooper in the world! I really need to get it on video. In her poodle skirt. To die for (if your her parents :). The gym was amazingly decorated! It was really awesome.
We left just a bit early to come back for more birthday festivities. (The kids couldn't eat any sweets at the sock hop. We're mean.)
Whooowheeee, what a day! What a FUN day celebrating a FUN girl that is LOVED beyond measure.
