On Friday night we had a zany little family party for Annabeth. First we ate Mexican food and then we came back to our house for dessert. The Cinderella cake from Randall's was our honored guest. It was pretty small and we are a cake-loving family, so I got three cupcakes to go along with it. The icing did not fare well on the ride home and they looked tie-dyed. Cinderella almost plunged to the ground two times, but the Lord was very merciful and she survived.
You know those blogs that have really dreamy and beautiful party pictures? This is not one of those blogs. We try to do cute stuff, but we are not as awesome and professional as those people.
We are, however, enthusiastic. And we will make fools of ourselves to delight our wee ones. Exhibit A:
Bibby in a Rapunzel dress that was
Melissa also wore a princess dress, but she threatened to disown me if I published a picture of her in it. I'm not going to test her.
This is when we were singing to Annabeth. She sang along to herself.
She had a near-meltdown when the cake was cut, but homegirl triumphed over her emotions. She is three now, you know.
Mom got Annabeth this cute little ironing board.
She also got her this mask. I don't really know what to say about it.
These princess gloves were a gift from Aunt Melissa.
Dad reminded me of an Aztec something or other with this thing on his head.
And this is the classic "Dad falls asleep at the party" picture.
Cinderelly had kind of a rough night.
Me and Sis.
Today is my sister-in-law Lindsay's birthday. We wish so much that we could celebrate with her in Missouri. We love you, Lindsay Ellen! You are an amazing sister, aunt, and friend.
