"It's my party; I can cry if I want to. . ."

Mia turned four on Thursday and we had a birthday party for her today. Mia would have loved a princess, makeup, and Barbie birthday, but since we had some boys coming we decided on a magical birthday party.

The kids made magic wands and hats, learned magic tricks and performed in a magic show, went on a magic bean hunt, and made magic potion. Did I mention it was magical?

This is a horrible picture especially since I cut off the birthday girl herself. It was rather crazy with the 8 kids that we had, I was lucky to get any-I can't imagine Livy's party with 17 guests!

What is a birthday party without the birthday girl or boy crying? It is almost a given. Mia did shed some tears, but in the end was a very happy camper and had fun with her friends. I think her favorite birthday present were the Barbies she bought with her birthday money. She bought four and now, it's official, Ken, the Barbie is a polygamist.

Oh my gosh! What a good idea. I think I'll have a magic party for my next birthday. I really like the picture of Mia with her 4 fingers. That's cute.

You must have found your camera. I love the pictures you take. Mia is definetly a little magical princess. She sounded pretty happy on the phone, I couldn't stop laughing at the recitation.And..well, hey, I cry at my birthdays!

You are a totally talented teacher. I just got done reading your preschool blog and you look like you provide so much productive fun. Porter definitely doesn't even know what the Olympics are--maybe next year. Happy birthday to Mia!
