The birthday party has come and gone and we are still standing.
Okay, pictures! Nana gave Little Kid this Anna dress to wear to her party but I could not get her down the stairs in it. She said that it was too scratchy. Sigh. Whoever designs a dress up outfit out of soft fabric would make a mint.
Once again, we could not have pulled this party off without the grandmothers. Gramma helped with setup and parent greeting while I ran around like a chicken with my head cut off and Nana set up the cupcakes (both The Engineer and I are nursing colds and did not want to infect any food or drink).
Snowflake cupcakes -
It was so much fun to hear the kids come in and shout, "Olaf!"
Her little sister was one tired girl - her birthday party was directly before Little Kids and they each went to both!
They were spellbound - mostly.
Check out Big Kid's Olaf shirt - that was an iron on that the Nana ironed for us, because I surely would have set it on fire.
We served cupcakes and Reeses Pieces ice cream trees. I thought that they looked...wintery?
The highlight of the party (other than Olaf) was the castle piñata. We had never done one with strings before and did not know what we were doing. We thought that each kid would come up and pull a string - yeah, that does not really work. Thankfully, our friend Kathryn clued us in that all of the kids are supposed to pull a string simultaneously. Ohhh.
Tomorrow: The Details, or how I spent four days making Olaf treat bags:
Happy birthday, sweet girl. I hope that your day was everything you wanted it to be!
