Allie's 3rd birthday party was today and almost all of her friends from school were able to come as well as many of her friends from outside school. It was a packed house but a lot of fun.
She got a Thomas the Train table from her dear friend Erik (Ri-ak, as she calls him) and all the kids hovered over it during the party. It was clearly a huge hit.
We had two activities for the kids. The first was a cupcake decorating station where the kids got to load cupcakes with frosting and sprinkles. Allie and all the kids piled around the table shoveling cupcakes in as fast as they could but somehow managed not to smear frosting all over everything. I was impressed.
When it was finally time for us to sing "Happy Birthday", everyone was cupcaked out and Allie got a little bashful. And then Jonathan laughed and blew out all the candles. A quick re-light was in order and Allie rose to the occasion.
