Sarah has a map to her birthday party...She wanted to invite the whole town.
With the 2 youngest girls' birthdays 11 days apart, I decided to celebrate them together this time. We spent the early part of the day at Focus on the Family's play area, and then had a nice dinner and presents at home. Sarah requested Chinese Chicken Salad and Macaroni and Cheese.
Lots of Dollar Store color for these girls!
(So sorry for the bad photos...It's a long story.)
Before all the fun, we had one of those days. A number of things went off track, and the cake got dropped on the floor by a well-meaning sister. Frosting was everywhere and there were some girls in tears. But we quickly went to plan B, smoothed out what frosting was left, threw on some flower sprinkles and let Nat and Sarah arrange Teddy Grahams on top. It turned out looking more like a teddy bear pow-wow, but you know, it's really hard to ruin chocolate.

Ready for Presents!
They got 'just what they wanted' and were just so happy to have some new things to play with. I remember years ago when we had the 3 boys, just aching for a daughter to throw a party for, and now we have 4 of them!
Each girl got a princess costume, complete with beautiful dresses, crowns, and 'swords' (that's what you call a wand when you have 6 brothers).
