Sissy's 4th Birthday Party

I know I have been MIA here on my blog for a little while, I always have good intentions of posting updates, but I always want to wait until I have time to upload pics and then by the time the kids go to bed I am too tired or I forget. So I am back, hopefully I can keep up with it this time.

Today our Little Girl turned 4 years old, I can't believe it has been that long already. We had an amazing Tea Party with some of her friends. First when they arrived they got to decorate their own tea party hats, as well as make their own paper fans and get their nails painted.
Here is Sissy all ready to go enjoy some tea.

Some of our Stroller Strides Friends all ready for some tea.

After they were all "dolled up" they went out to the patio to have their Tea. It was so cute to see them all drinking from their little Tea Cups, some of them even putting up their little pinkies, all "lady like." They enjoyed some tea sandwiches, chocolate covered strawberries, fruit, rice crispy cupcakes, cookies, cheese and crackers, popcorn, and olives. They must have been hungry because they devoured the food, their wasn't too much left.
This was the Tea table set up.

Sissy was really enjoying her tea and didn't want to move on to the next activity.

All her friends were playing, but she was still enjoying her tea and olives.

Sissy was finally able to go and play with the other kids.

When they were all finished eating they got to play a couple of games, which included "Miss Manors Says", which is just Simon says but with things likes say Yes ma'am, curtsey, pretend to drink tea with your pinkie up, and walk straight and tall. We also played a game where they had to stand on a chair and drop a piece of silverware into a teapot(although we used a coffee pot, cause the teapots I had were too small) It was kind of funny actually, Sissy went first and she got 3 out of 6 in, but after that only 2 of the girls got only 1 in. We had to have a tie breaker between Kathryn and Sybil, and although we didn't really settle it, Kathryn's mom said to give it to Sybil because Kathryn would not know the difference.

Here is some of the "Miss Manors Says"

Next we sang Happy Birthday and had some Yummy cake that Aunt Charity made. She made the cutest Teapot cake, that was as yummy as it looked. After that Sissy opened her gifts and then they played a little more before we finished it up. The girls each got to leave with a goodie bag that had some more girlie stuff in it and looked like a tea bag.
Here is a picture of the Teapot cake that Aunt Charity made for Sissy.

All the girls enjoyed some delicious cake

Here is one of her new dress up outfits, what a cute Lady Bug!!

Here is her outfit she choose after her party.

I think that all the girls had lots of fun, I know Sissy did. I know we are looking forward to next year, hope it comes slowly though.
