Someone Had a Birthday!

And she celebrated Fancy Nancy style with a tea party for all her friends!
She was a little excited. :)

Luckily for me, she didn't remember she had been to a Fancy Nancy party when her sister turned four so my recycled ideas and games were still a hit with her.  She might have been a little plumper then:

There was a "Get Fancy" room where the girls (and one adorable boy) embellished purses,

and got decked out in tiaras, boas, and sparkly bracelets. (I don't even feel too guilty that some items were left over from Isabelle's party a few years ago.)

The tea party room...

...and the treat table.  Magic fairy wands, tea sandwiches, strawberry ladybugs, cupcakes, and sparkling princess punch.  We were all ready for the guests to arrive!

Time to get crafty!

They played Pin the Tiara on Fancy Nancy - Maddy may have cheated, but I guess the birthday girl is allowed.

Everyone else played by the rules - with less success.

It got very quiet at tea time as each little princess stuffed themselves with a LOT of sugar.  I even sprinkled decorative sugar on top of the raspberry tea sandwiches.  I'm so sorry for what I did to their poor parents.  In my defense, my girls have inhaled plenty of sugar at other birthday parties so, what goes around comes around?

Madeleine had a fantastic time with her friends - what a great day!

And what a tolerant cat!

Do birthdays seem to go on for a week at your house, or is it just ours?  Maddy's real birthday was a couple days later so she took pumpkin cupcakes with cream cheese frosting to school.  How much do I looove cute holiday decorations?!

That night the birthday girl chose dinner out at our favorite Mexican restaurant near our house.  

She happily told everyone she saw that it was her special day as she wanted a guarantee that this magical moment would happen just like it did last year:  Sombrero Time!

Happy birthday to our sweet and sassy, bold and in charge, loving little girl.  You're the spunkiest little four-year-old we know!
