A bit of house keeping to take care of here on the blog and a whole lot of backlogged photos to get up. I'm hoping that with school starting up soon things may be a little bit calmer around the our house and I'll have time to get things like laundry, baking and blogging done. Only five more months till I go back to work (eeeeek!)
Dr. Scott when she grows up.

As part of her birthday celebrations Lola invited Beej and Dylan over for a birthday sleep over. Our very first sleep over and it went amazing. I researched having a successful sleep over and here are some of the recommended steps.
Clearly we disregarded all of that advice and had a super fun amazing sleep over. Who knew that three kids in one room would sleep so well . Thanks for joining us Beej and Dylan at our inaugural birthday sleep over party!

For Lola's 4th birthday party she requested a Princess Tea Party and we were more then willing to accommodate her request. She had some very specific requests about what she would like to see at the party.
As requested there was a strawberry princess cake with pink icing and figures that she could play with.
Lots of sweets, because every good tea party has lots of sugar.
She saw this princess cut out in a store and thought that it would be a good idea to have for those guests who didn't show up already dressed as a princess. Lola was the first to test it out.
Most guests obliged.
Then the most amazing thing happened that Lola had never ever thought of requesting; there was a knock on the door and Cinderella entered the room. The kids were captivated instantly. She read them stories.
She brought along a tickle trunk of dresses and costumes for all the kids to dress up in. Lola tried on 3 princes dresses during Cinderella's visit.
Cinderella taught all the kids how to do a royal wave and had Lola lead all the princesses and princes on a parade.
She was pretty much the happiest I have ever seen her.
There were lots of cheering for the prince and princess parade.
Cinderella also taught everyone how to curtsey like a princess. Maddy has clearly had a great deal of practice performing curtsies.
Cinderella even posed for some photos with the guests.
It was an amazing party and Lola had the time of her life. Big thank you to all our friends and family who were able to join for Lola's Princess Birthday Tea Party and for helping us celebrate 4 wonderful years of Lola!
