A Birthday {Milestones}

My little girl turned 4 this week.  Monday we had a Princess Party for her and a few friends, and then Tuesday was just cake and presents for us and the grandparents.  

I made a simple banner to hang on our sliding door.  I think I might post a tutorial on how I made it.  Although, you can probably figure it out by looking at the picture.  I spent $0 on this banner and it was pretty cute.

This is my lovely with her cake.

My lovely afraid the candles were going to jump up and bite her.

My lovely blowing her candles out with all her might.
 pretty sure she's not going to like this picture being on the internet when she's 16

 The cookies that somehow got devoured.  It was my first real attempt at making sugar cookies.  
They turned out yummy and I think I will make and ice some with the kids for Christmas.

 Ella opening her gifts on Monday with her friends all in their princess attire.  
She was the Belle of the Ball.  haha

 My cake lady quit making cakes (BOO!)... so, that means I get to make the cake.  It looked okay.  
It did taste VERY good, though.  And, I think that's what matters, right?

And, last but not least, my boho-hippy fairy in all her glory. 

I love that girl... so much!
