Addison turned 4 years old today! She has been talking for months about her "Fancy Nancy" birthday party...and the countdown was finally over! If you don't have the 'Fancy Nancy' books, they are a must-have for any girly girl! Nancy is an over-the-top girl who loves everything fancy (i.e. gaudy! and every girls' dream!). Addison celebrated her big day with 5 'glamour girls' and 1 'handsome' boy.
Addy was so excited to get dressed up all fancy! We are talking bows, glitter, ribbons, necklaces, bracelets, make-up, curls, crown, shoes, sunglasses...the works....just like Fancy Nancy. We had a fancy lunch of sandwiches and cheese cut out in heart shapes and lemonade in real glasses. I finally put to use all those fancy platters and crystal that are tucked away. We decorated hats that Addy later remarked were "so posh". After a quick game, presents and cake...the fun-filled hour was over. She made my day when she exclaimed "this is the best birthday ever!"
Later that night the whole family dressed up fancy to go to dinner (just like in the book). She got a lot of attention at Applebee's ... and some ladies next to us actually recognized her from the book! And I didn't even mind wearing a feather boa around :-)
Thanks to all her fun friends who came to celebrate. And thanks to all the family who called to wish our fancy girl happy birthday! Girls are so fun...we are so glad she brings some glamour to our otherwise 'plain' family. I think I had just as much fun as her planning a girly girls party!! Happy 4th birthday Addy! We can't believe 4 years has gone by so quickly! We can't imagine our little family without you!
