Fairy Party

Gee, we're still playing catch up on here. This is from Marlee's birthday party WEEKS ago. We had a fairy party. Everything FAIRY! (I admit, I think I went a bit over board) But the girls all looked so cute dressed up, and they had a lot of fun. They got to make their own fairy wands, and had a blast pretending to change Nathan into a cat. I don't know why they chose him to be a cat, but they thought it was hilarious!!!
We played spin the bottle, and freeze dance. That was the favorite game! And then they spent a lot of time just running around. When throwing a party, remember that kids like to just run free. Last time we planned a party, every minute was planned, and by the end I felt tired trying to keep to my schedule. This time we did more of "going with the flow", and everyone had a lot of fun.
Marlee's got a cute little gang of girls to hang out with. All but one of them are in her school class. Everyday they scream and hug when they greet each other while lining up for class. It was a fun party, I think Marlee had a good time, and felt special. That's what we wanted just some Marlee time. My mom was great and took all 3 boys so it could just be her. Thanks Mom!!
This pic is from her actual birthday morning. Love the candles? We had forgotten to get candles, so Nathan improvised and used matches in her blueberry (her fav) muffins. Fun.
I can't believe my little girl is 6. I remember being 6, I don't feel like I should have a child that's an age I can vividly remember. But we love her!! She's so fun, and helpful. A very good, smart, and entertaining little girl. We're lucky to have her in our family. We love you Marlee!!
