|My little taco amidst her birthday balloons|
|Yep, total commercial sellout! It is Keira's birthday, not mine, after all..|
|I didn't realize how huge this My Little Pony balloon was until it was out of it's packaging being blown up with helium. yikes!|
Today was a day of celebration! We celebrated Keira's birthday today even though her birthday is actually the week after next. I based Keira's party around the availability of the face painter. The day was gorgeous, sunny and clear. Great day for a party!
|The decorations I bought while we were at Pearl River Mart in chinatown during our NYC vacation.|
|More of our Pearl River Mart decorations.|
|Keira chose this for her birthday party attire. I thought it was pretty cool.. Plus the wavy hair! This kid is all legs..|
|We had an almost egg-free lunch as one of the girls has an egg allergy. Turned out pretty good!|
|Words can't describe these two together. Too cute. Bff's..|
|School chums & friends!|
|The only time they actually sat for more than 2 minutes besides eating lunch & cake later on.|
|Nancy setting up her face painting table while the girls only half-heartedly stringed their bracelets. They just wanted their faces painted!|
|Okay, waiting is hard. Easier to wait while stuffing their mouths with strawberries, pears and chips. yum!|
|Keira with her Merliah (sigh, yes Barbie) face! There was a little gem stuck to her forehead but she took it off, said it was tickling her. lol.|
|Ooh, mysterious Miss M!|
|The 1 dude at this party, Alex! And he had the Jolly Roger painted on his forearm. Cool...|
|Proudly showing his Jolly Roger.. Aar!|
|Miss E on her way to becoming a Mermaid Princess..|
|Miss B, Keira and Miss A. Beautiful.|
|Miss C! Look how her face painting matches her top!|
|Tattoo session! Plus, Ring Pop candy madness..|
|This photo doesn't do the tattoo justice. They were really sparkly awesome.|
All in all, I think Keira and her friends had a great time. There were some iffy moments like girls scrambling, crying and fighting to sit beside the birthday girl at the lunch table and a little someone who tried to make off with all of Keira's little makeup (until the other girls found out and made her give it all back!).. Apart from that, those girls and the 1 little dude were awesome.
I hope you all enjoyed your weekend too! I can't believe my little girl will soon be turning 6. Time flies..
I am completely beat but this weekend's work was so incredibly worth it!
