It's Party Time!

One of the lessons I learned this week was that with small children, you should really have their birthday party either before, or, on the child's actual birthday. Unfortunately, daddy had his county golf tournament last Saturday, and thus, making it impossible for us to have her party before her birthday. So, we opted for yesterday, and sweet little Aubrey thought she was turning 5! Ha! You know, because she turned 4 on Tuesday! Once all the grandparents, aunts, uncle, and cousins got here though, all systems were a go. I must say, Aubrey hit the mother load as everyone was so generous. She got lots of cute fall and winter clothes, a princess jump rope, a fish game, a Curious George book, and most importantly...PRINCESS CLOTHES! My parents got her a beautiful Sleeping Beauty dress (movie also) and crown. Brandon's parents got her a treasure chest full of different dress up outfits (Brandon's least favorite would be the wedding dress:).

The theme of the day was from the Disney movie, Mulan. Our sweet neighbor, Tina, has a daughter (Sierra) who is one of Brandon's students. When Sierrea was Aubrey's age, she was really into Mulan. Her grandmother made a Mulan costume for Halloween, and sweet Tina, let us borrow the outfit for the party.

Mushu the dragon (voice done by Eddie Murphy) was the inspiration for the cake. Although he didn't turn out quite like I'd hoped, Aubrey told me, "You did a good job on my cake mom." That's all that's important, right? :)

We had a great day of playing with the new princess clothes, watching Sleeping Beauty, playing outside and capping off the day with "B pizza" recommended by grandma Susan. (She called it "B pizza" because she couldn't remember the name of the restaurant, but knew it started with a "B".":) Sorry grandma, I just had to mention that:)

Oh, yeah, did I also mention that yesterday was Aunt Sarah's birthday? Happy birthday Aunt Sarah! We love you!
You know it was a great party when the girls slept in until 9am this morning. Wooowho! Party!
