Getting Ready

Getting ready for a party is a Big Deal, even when you’re four…

Auntie Sarah's Gift

Right down to the smallest details.

The Niko Version

For others, getting ready means putting on a hat and waiting next to the presents.

And were there ever presents!

A new addition to the Kitchen Collection…


And a castle, with knights and horses – even a dragon!

Cake time!

Then came cake-time. How many four-year-olds ask for carrot cake for their birthdays?

(Sadly, the Little Man had gotten himself so spun-up by this point that he had to go upstairs…he’ll get his cake later.)

Angel and Daddy play with the castle

After that, there was plenty of time for New Adventures…Angel’s Daddy had as much fun as she did.

  1. Looks like a great party! My granddaughter is 3-1/2 and she also loves to paint her fingernails (and toes) and get dressed up and do her hair. All girl and after raising 2 boys, I LOVE it!
    Happy Birthday, to Angel!!

    • HA! I have 2 grown girls and a boy…and the girls were most likely to paint their nails black when they were teens – no Girly-Girls here! It’s a good thing Sarah outgrew that – Angel needs someone to help her pick colors πŸ™‚

  2. She’s looking so grown up now! Okay, maybe not grown up, but certainly less toddler-ish. Love the fingernails. That’s a great color on Angel. My youngest son is a fan of carrot cake and he started asking for it as his birthday cake at a young age, too. He still asks for it. πŸ™‚

    • She DOES look grown up…her hair is the most obvious – from fine baby-hair to thick and glossy little girl hair almost overnight…
      In the category of Foods Kids Don’t Usually Eat, she’s a champ…ate all my marinated tomatoes at dinner! πŸ™‚

  3. That Angel! How did she know her nails would match the trim on her castle? You threw a wonderful party, Marie. You know, my birthday is in January … a Friday … πŸ™‚

  4. How wonderful for her, I hope she settles sooner for you than she has other times. It is great to see that her father was there for her, in years to come, I suspect that will mean a lot to her. You do a fantastic job, I hope you celebrated too.
