Molly’s friend Mattie Gail turned 4 earlier this month so you know what that called for, don’t you? Yep! A birthday party! Molly was beyond excited to share Mattie Gail’s special day with her.
And, oh what a party it was! A ladybug party to be exact. There were crafts, and games, and crafts, and food, and crafts, and cake, and more crafts! There was no down time at this party, now way! Something exciting to do every step of the way. Just take a look…
After everyone had a turn with the spots, the kids played a ladybug version of musical chairs…Musical Leaves. Molly was the last one standing and won the game.
She was a bit confused though. Every kid got a prize when they were “out.” Molly really wanted a prize but her competitive spirit wouldn’t let her give up just to get the goodies. She was rewarded at the end, have no fear. She got a princess puzzle. Oh my, the joy!
Despite a few behavior issues, Molly had a great time at Mattie's party. Kudos to Tressa, Mattie’s mom. She put on a party that was as cute as a bug. A ladybug, that is!
As it happened, today was my birthday. That meant a double celebration. Tony and Molly got my favorite cake from the Chinese Bakery: Mocha Cappuccino. Lucky for Molly, this is not her favorite. She was content with a tiny dish of reduced sugar ice cream. We were all happy about that! We only needed to experience the sugar uglies once today.
Molly really thought that I needed a Mulan doll from the Disney store for my birthday. Luckily her Dad persuaded her that this would be a better gift.Be still my heart. I am in techie heaven! It’s a laser printer, scanner, fax and copier. And it’s all mine! The rest of the minions in the house can use the old printer, because this one is MINE.
But this right here was my best present of the day.Of course the one I got from my hubby was equally as good, but there was no one around to take a picture of it. Just use your imagination. But keep it clean…this is a family blog.
Thanks Molly and Tony for making this Older than 4 birthday so special. I love you!
