Birthdays are the Sweetest Things...

Especially if you are turning four, really believe you are a Princess and have other little girlfriends who believe as well!  Yesterday we finally got to celebrate Sophia's fourth birthday.  (Her real birthday was last weekend, but it had to be postponed due to the plague we all had.)  The celebration was planned as a "tea party," which thrilled Sophia.  She has a brother, Benjamin who is five years older.  Since he is the big brother, they tend to play more of the games he wants...war, star wars, video games, etc.  One day Ben had company (Sophia was only 3 at the time) and everyone was busy playing war games (including Sophia).  They were running around with their guns.  Sophia was saying "bang, bang, your dead".  She quickly disposed of every last one of them, dropped her toy gun on the floor and then sweetly announced, "Okay, now we have a tea party!"  Aren't girls great?!  Here's Mom and Dad (after the party), Sophia (as the party begins) and a few of the little Princesses making bracelets and necklaces for their regal gowns.


  1. Oh to be four and wearing a party dress! Lovely to share in the festivities.

  2. She is adorable in her lovely dress. What a marvelous idea to have beading for a party activity. I am sure they all just loved it. When Aubrey brings her parents here for Thanksgiving, I hope to do some beading with her as well as painting! Looks like a fun party and I hope you are all feeling better.

  3. A birthday party with blonde little princesses and your niece, Sophia, the outstanding one. May Sophia have many happy parties and bring much satisfaction to her family!
