Party Day. Part Two.

The Birthday Princess.

Mom! It’s Princesses and it’s HUGE!!! Her reaction to each gift was priceless.

Due to the rain, the pinata was inside. I cut the top off and tossed it into the air, the candy flew everywhere. These kids are better than any vacuum.

The kids who would stand still long enough to take a picture.

Taking that deep breath to blow out the candles.

Monkey loved the cake.

I have not yet removed the red eye, please forgive me. I am exhausted and in need of sleep and food.

Here’s what I wrote in her card:

“There once was a king and queen,
Who ruled a kingdom nice and serene
When into their lives a princess arrives
With a sparkling smile and twinkling eyes.
She brings joy to their lives with every day
And they love her in each and every way!
She’s been ruling their lives for 4 fun filled years,
And they look forward to more laughter and tears!”

Tomorrow my darling, my princess, my angel, my firstborn will be 4.
Oh my holy hell!
I have loved every tumultuous minute, and look forward with hope, anticipation and anxiety… to what life has in store for us.
