Four Year Olds

I was going to title this post "Little Girls" but the post is about my daughter's four year birthday party and she had two of her four year old boy cousins in attendance.

First let me say there is NOTHING cuter on this planet than a four year old. Period. They are absolutely adorable. Some people have said there is no such thing as an ugly baby but I have seen some pretty ugly babies. But four year olds are precious. They have an easy smile and winning ways. They can be easily bribed out of a sour mood. They find everything interesting.

Since I have a four year old daughter I *had* to have a Disney Princesses Party theme. Purple and Pink ruled the house. I bought little purple and pink crowns for the feminine partiers. However one of the boys donned a crown and smiled proudly as we snapped a picture of the quartet of princesses. The older boys rolled with laughter.

My daughter waited patiently for us to finish singing Happy Birthday. She tried to blow out the candles but when she blows she extends her bottom lip out and winds up blowing her bangs out of the way. After the third attempt mommy helped her out! LOL.

She began opening her presents and everyone wanted to help her. Especially her cousin Graham. He started ripping packages apart until his mom grabbed him. Hilarious. The big moment was when she opened the Wedding Barbie to oooh's and aaaahhh's from the pre-school crowd. Then she opened the Wedding Ken to a stunned silence. She whispered "The Handsome Prince!" with a little voice filled with awe and wonder and the crowd responded with a long drawnout ahhhhh. It was absolutely precious.
