A Busy Weekend

Miss M turned 4 on Saturday. I cannot believe it has been 4 years already. Too bad she acts like she is 12. I guess that is what happens when you try to keep up with an older brother.
Here are the start of her birthday photos. I have been busy editing lots of pics and trying to put together a video. I will post more when they are done.
M wanted a "princess" party. I am not a fan of cartoon character parties, so I went for more of an elegant party (fit for a princess). We used real plates and cups with different ribbons on each handle.
I got these gorgeous flowers at the farmer's market that morning for .10 cents a stem. I hung them from the trees above the tables with tulle.

I made up some felt crowns and had stickers for the girls to decorate with.
                                                                Every princess need a crown.

There was hopscotch.

And cute girly dresses.

Of course even cuter girls.

I think every one's favorite part of the party was digging all the treasures out of the sand.
I don't know who had more fun the kid at the party or me planning it. I am such a sucker for a party.

After M's party, we had my brother Vinnie's official graduation party at my parents house.
Here are a few pics from that.

No party is complete without live music. I don't know what we are going to do when my brother Donnie moves to California. We will miss his great voice. (don't worry Donnie, that's not the only thing we will miss)

Everyone obviously had a good time. That's my brother Vinnie, third from the left, next to him is my cousin Jesse, then my brother Donnie and my cousin John on the far right. Vinnie, Jesse and John all graduated college this year. It was a celebration for all three.

Happy Celebrating!!
