Fairy Birthday Party LO

(click the image to see it larger)

journaling: We celebrated Brenna’s 5th birthday with a fairy party. Fairy cake, ice cream, Flutter Fluff (aka cotton candy), candy corn, and sparkling raspberry lemonade kept everyone’s stomach’s full. We made fairy necklaces and rings, and colored fairy pages before opening gifts. Brenna received lots of Barbie Island Princess things- a costume and accessories as well as the big Magical Castle Vanity. She jumped up and down with surprise and joy when she saw the vanity! Hannah gave her a My Little Pony Unicorn, and the Rodeffers gave her a My Little Ponly story collection. Beth & Carissa gave her some Barbies and a Tinkerbelle costume, and Bryce gave her a Dora video game.

No, I didn't make the cake myself this time. I was lazy and bought it at the grocery store bakery. Brenna had one friend from church able to come, and of course Grandmama was here too. It was a nice, relaxing party. Brenna had one very small meltdown during the cake part- I lit the candles and the next thing I knew she had blown them out. Before we could sing or I could get a picture. She didn't like being told that she was supposed to wait. I lit the candles again and she grudgingly waited while we sang, then Daddy had to help her blow them out a second time. A few bites of cake and ice cream and she was happy again, thank goodness.

The biggest hit of the present haul was definitely the Magical Castle Vanity. Brenna was fascinated. Sarah was fascinated. It doesn't take a genius to see the conflict in those two statements LOL Sarah wanted to play too and Brenna didn't want to share, at least not with her little sister. So, we listened to Sarah fuss and cry for most of Saturday evening. thankfully, things have calmed down a little now. As long as Sarah could have the rose necklace and rings she was content today. Just don't try to take those away from her, or your ears will be sorry! Sarah needs a big jewelry box of costume jewelry, I think.

I've got pictures of the Magic Castle Vanity in action, but those are going to have to wait until tomorrow as it is late and the big kids go back to school in the morning so I had better get myself to bed.
