Happy Birthday Zoe!

Zoe is a big four-year-old now. We had her birthday party last weekend since her actual birthday was the day before Thanksgiving. This was her first birthday where we invited some of her friends from school. We have always had other kids at birthday parties – cousins and our friends’ kids – but this was the first party with *her* friends.

Since it was the weekend before Thanksgiving, I was sure that some kids would not be able to make it. I thought we would have 14 or 15 kids. I miscalculated. We had 21! Luckily for me, it was not at our house. Unluckily, however, since we were charged per kid, it was a bit more expensive than I had planned. Oh well. She had a blast.

It was a themed “Once Upon a Time” party. The girls could dress up like princesses and the boys could be knights or kings. They had face painting, a treasure hunt, learned to bow and curtsey, and also did the Hokey Pokey, played Ring Around the Rosey, etc.

Here’s the birthday girl. Notice how she’s already got her fork in hand ready to eat as she blows out the candles. She takes her cake very seriously.
