Don't Stop the Party

I have officially survived a 4th birthday for 4 girls that, appropriately, lasted 4 days. Our celebration began Thursday. My daughters took cupcakes to school and their teacher made each of them a "birthday crown."
The fun continued into Friday (their actual birthday) when we surprised them with a V-Tech Smile. All four of them have been eyeing Hubby's Playstation, so I thought it was best to buy an age appropriate and somewhat educational video game system. Hubby thinks it's funny that I had trouble playing the "difficult" level, which is meant for six year olds. We also saw Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs. Unfortunately to see the 3D or IMAX version we would have blown more than $50, so we settled for the non 3D version. It's a pretty funny movie. Appropriate for children, but a few jokes thrown in for adults. We also had more cupcakes.
Saturday was the day of the big party. The weather was perfect and (I think) everyone had fun. We played games, we ate cupcakes, we ran around until we were all exhausted. What more could you ask for from a party for preschoolers?
Sunday was a day to relax. We played some of their new videogames and watched a movie. Oh, and we had cupcakes! Yes, my daughters are on sugar overload.
Today I'm trying to get back to the normal routine. Roo didn't want to get dressed. Sue Sue didn't want to eat breakfast. Heck, I didn't want to take them out in the pouring rain to go to school... but I did... because today is another little girl's birthday and they're having cupcakes at preschool!

Ryla had a blast at the party! I'm sorry I couldn't make it. She told me all about it when she got home. She keeps asking if she is going to another birthday party this weekend. She is so funny!

I think having cupcakes every day threw them off. They keep asking if it's their birthday again today!

It would have been nice to have a few more attendees, but it was a blast, so I'm not concerned.

I don't know how you did it. Congrats to you all for your success!

We both had little ones turn 4 this past week! My son turned 4 on 9.13. Can't imagine how much work and how much FUN goes into a birthday celebration for 4 little ladies! Thanks for sharing, now I am craving cupcakes!

Today is the first day in awhile that we won't be eating cupcakes... and it seems odd.

4 shots for 4 kids in one day? ugh!

It wasn't pretty.
