Four years old...

Delaney turns four today. We had a party for her Saturday, at a park in the rain. It was supposed to clear up by afternoon, but it never did and I was disinclined to move a party with 16 children into my house. So they played with wet behinds from sliding down the slides. But they didn't care. There was cake! And ice cream! And goody bags! And kids! Woo hoo!

Unfortunately, there was not alcohol. Unless you count the Bailey's I slipped into my coffee.

Delaney had requested a Hello-Kitty-Princess-Doctor cake:
When we were cutting it, I asked her what part she wanted.
"The Hello Kitty part."
Nick wanted the pills. I hope that is not a precursor of things to come.

She was satisfied with an ear and the bow.

Sam and his noisemaker. That didn't work because it was full of slobber.

Fortunately, cake is one thing that does not require teeth to be eaten.

Mom and Sam!

This morning I filled her room with pink balloons and streamers, decorated the house and made her pink, heart shaped pancakes for breakfast. I told her she could have (just about) anything she wanted for dinner. She thought long and hard.
"Macaroni and cheese."

You know, the gourmet orange kind in the box? Fancy.

Happy Birthday baby girl!

Happy Bday Delaney!!! 4 Years old, you big girl!

Awesome cake.

I like that she wanted it kept feminine ala Hello Kitty, but that didn't mean Hello Kitty can't be a doctor.

I just love your cakes! And the birthday meal? My son started naming things like macaroni and cheese too, but I steered him to his next favorite-spaghetti, without the sauce of course. LOL!
