Greyleigh's 4th birthday: a royal gathering of princesses

This is about what Greyleigh looked like last week on her birthday and supposed birthday party. :(

We rescheduled her party for today and let her rest, but it was sure hard to see our little firecracker so sick and lethargic on her special day---for the second year in a row!

Needless to say, we were beyond happy to celebrate her today with her favorite little friends!  What a great little group of girls she is beginning to surround herself with--and their mom's are pretty great too :)

We went full on princesses this year as she is still heavily gulping the princess Koolaid.  It's not my favorite flavor, but we do what we can for those we love, right?  Let's just say, I won't be devastated when the princess phase is laid to rest.  Although, seeing her all decked out in her princess attire is pretty adorable.  Good think we'll be meeting all of the princesses at Christmas!

Everett even got on board serving as the royal tea waiter.  He was pretty stoked to get all dressed up and serve the ladies their tea--he took it very seriously.  Umm, and the best big brother award goes to...

A good whack of a pinata, some make and take jewels, some cake and presents and now we are done with birthday parties for a year! Phew!

Here's some highlights from Greyleigh's special day.

Everett's 7th Birthday Party-Football Combine Style

So I wonder who thought it was a great idea to plan a wild boy's birthday party after a long week of daddy being out of town and mama at workshop week.  Was that us?  Perhaps, we planned it during THE craziest week ever, but crazy or not, this boy and his tribe know how to have fun.  Curtis planned a Football Combine themed party for Everett.  Does anyone even know what that is? I definitely didn't, but essentially I think it's a round of drills to weed out players suitable for drafting.  We had each friend come in their favorite sports Jersey and fashioned them in some eye black.  Oh yeah, and Curt and I made sure to take the part seriously by dressing as referee's---since Curt has about 50 uniforms.  We took their full stats: Name, age, weight and height before we executed the drills which were both humorous and adorable.   Little kids doing push up contests--hilarity. I love how some kids are super intense and others could care less about how they do.  It was a pretty great mix.  We ended the challenge with possibly the most crucial drill of all-- the touch down dance. I think after seeing their moves I have a few new ones I could pull out at any given time.  I'm not sure that I've ever been so tired after a birthday party, but my heart is full.

I have a SEVEN year old!  Who is in charge of letting this happen?  I need to talk to their manager and request less fleeting childhoods.

Now to clean up....I think I have an arsenal of cheese balls and nerf gun bullets around the house waiting to be scooped up.

Little boys are the best.
