Amelia wanted a special lunch with Daddy and Ella at Old McDonald's. Amelia insisted on wearing polka dot tights and rockstar shoes! Back at home the girls helped me set up the table for a tea party with real teapot, cups, and saucers. Phillip slept through her entire birthday party. Amelia invited over three friends to join in the fun. We danced to Princess music. Then had a tea party with pink lemonade, tea cakes, and strawberry rolls. The girls talked about princesses and dinosaurs with a smattering of dragons. Right at 2:20 the sun came out. Blessed day! I sent the girls outside to blow bubbles and chase each other with party blowers. Justin came home just in time to help with the pinata. Ella sure packs a strong hit, she ended up breaking open the pinata. The other girls were pretty sissy hitters. Justin lined up the girls with their bags opened and shook the pinata over the bags. Next we had cake and ice cream. Stella said the Cinderella cake looked awesome. I was glad Cinderella looked more like the Fairy Godmother, she needed to gain some weight. Thanks to frosting for that effect! This year Amelia only opened six gifts, three from friends and three from family. It was perfect!
Once the girls left Justin brought out her big gift from us...a bike! She was speechless! It took her a couple tries to get the pedaling down, after 30 minutes we followed her as she rode around the block. I was so proud of her...no fits or tantrums until bedtime. She shared her toys and played so nicely with all her friends. She even let Phillip play with her new toys without complaint. That is pretty amazing. Happy Birthday little one. We sure love you.
