We had a wonderful birthday weekend with our little one. She had such a great time at her zoo party! I would love to show you all the wonderful decorations I made and how the house looked all decked out for the party, but, truth be told, I didn't take any pictures of all of it. I was soooo busy getting ready for the party, chasing around my girl, and playing hostess, I forgot to grab my camera and shoot some pics. Very bad blogger, I know. Too bad my normal party photographer (a.k.a. my little brother) lives out of town now and couldn't come home for the party:(
I did manage to get a few pictures of the birthday girl in her very special birthday outfit. Here she is right before the party.
We don't usually keep a gorilla ladder in the great room. My husband was changing out a light bulb, and she, of course, wanted to help her Dada.
I am so proud of the way the round and round skirt turned out with the party shoes and the party hat headband. The way she floated around in that little skirt and stomped her feet while dancing around in those shiny shoes made it worth all my hard work. Every single bit of it. I love that girl to pieces!
She loved the zoo theme and thought it was hilarious when everyone sang happy birthday to her while wearing animal masks.
The big hit of the party was her pink Radio Flyer trike she got from her grandparents. Her cousin drove her around while she sat on the back and vice versa. She is so close to being able to ride it herself.
It was a beautiful day outside, so she got to chase her cousins around the front yard and go for a couple golf cart rides too. After all the guests left, she fell asleep right away. So did I. Phew!
Next up? Christmas!!
Easier Than I Thought!
