I no longer be three, come celebrate with me...

My youngest daughter
Mary Morgen's 4th birthday celebration...
Her birthday is December 21st,
so it is hard to have birthday celebrations
with much of a theme other than Christmas.
However, I always try to deviate a little bit from Christmas
so that it actually feels like a real birthday party.
This year I just did pink and blue.
No theme, just a color scheme.
We had a sweet shop
that also doubled as the take-home favors.
"Mogie" as she is so lovingly called,
standing by all the goodies to gobble up.
We took picture of Mogie
with each of her guests in an empty frame.
I am going to use these for the thank you notes.
some of the guests creating...
big sister getting her face painted.
mirrored letters my oldest daughter
put on the floor for the bean bag toss game.
Mogie getting ready to play the bean bag toss game.
I made cones out of scrap book paper
for the kids to fill up at the "Sweet Shoppe"
Mogie on her special day,
in her special crown, made by
my special friend.
the pom-pom balls
that hung from the dining chandelier
the tall towering cupcakes....
a glitter sign that reads
"Mogie and ME"
the invitation...
the beverages served were
pink french lemonade and blue bottled water
the gumball guessing game...
more of the sweet shoppe...
I did not get a picture,
but at the end of the party
when the guests were leaving,
we ties little notes to their wrists
like a bracelet that read:
"How sweet it is
to celebrate this birthday with you." the calm of the table before the storm of creating!
Mogie getting her face painted!
blowing out the candles...
Happy Birthday little one!
