The Birthday Party

Saturday finally arrived, the day that I had been preparing for and the day that Bella had been waiting for-her 'fake' birthday.  She was so excited!  Bella and Michelle left for Home Depot and then dance class and the decorating began.  I wanted to have the  house decorated by the time that she got back so we could have a big reveal.  Luckily, I had Durinda there to help me decorate.  I don't know what I would have done without her-she was such a big help!  Thank you Durinda!  We started decorating then had to run to get the balloons and the cupcakes and a few other things and then back to the decorating.  The day was iffy, so we decided to play it safe and set up inside in the event of rain.  That meant the kitchen was to be used for the cupcakes and drinks and the dining room for the sweet shoppe.  It all went well though and when Bella arrived home she walked through the house without saying a word, her mouth agape.  Finally she said 'I just don't know what to say!'.  Then she turned to me and say 'it' and said 'A tiara? Do I see a tiara?'. And then she squelled with delight.   That reaction was worth every bit of time and energy that I put into this party!  Here are a few pics:

Isn't this every kid's dream?

The birthday girl-she wore that tiara all day!
Is that a happy face or what?
