A Fairy Princess Birthday

 You know I go a little crazy for birthdays.  We try no to do a big party until the kids turn 5, but we still made a bit of a big deal for the family dinner for L's 4th birthday.  She is becoming quite the little lady so we had a very girly fairy princess theme.  Sadly she had a high fever (I think this happened when she was 2 as well, poor thing) but still we had fun.

One thing to remember about fairies is that they are very tiny.  
So we had a tiny bunting banner in the entryway.

 We had marsh mellow fairy wands, pink of course.

 We had lots of tiny food.  There were mini hotdogs, sliders (mini hamburgers), mini spinach dip bread bowls, mini pepperoni pizza muffins, mini mac 'n' cheese muffins, mini cupcake pops.  And our course pink fairy juice.

I made costumes for the girls.  Tutus, wings, ribbon crowns and stick wands.  They were super cute, but only got worn very briefly, oh well.

My boys were not excited about being fairies, so they were elves.  They insisted elves have bows and arrows.  So a few sticks from the yard, construction paper, string and burlap scraps created bows, arrows and quivers that satisfied the brothers.

 Sweetness trying hard to blow out her candles...

 Then the next day we had a little fairy play date with 2 preschool friends.  Same basic fairy stuff and a lot of time spent on the swings and the play house in the backyard.

Today she said, "Uh, Mom, I think I can do that myself.  I am 4 now."
Yes you are big girl.
