My sweet, smart, beautiful girl turned four years old yesterday. We celebrated with a Fairy party, like she has been requesting for months. It took a little bit of mommy magic to pull off a birthday party after a such a crazy week at school, but I managed. I even managed to make her a homemade birthday cake, like I have done every year for her birthday ...although it did look a little cake wreck-y. I am a perfectionist with my cakes, and this one started off with a HUGE crack down the middle and looking like poo. I only had frosting from the tub, and it was too soft and everything was a little drippy. But, I pulled it together!
We swam, we ate pizza, we had a pinata, and we ate cake. The kids put on homemade fairy wings and ran around with wands. It was perfect and I am so happy I was able to make her feel totally special for one whole day.
The fairy wings (I bought plain white paper wings at Michael's for $2.99 for a 6 pack) doubled as decorations, too!
