Anyway, her party was fabulous and all of the moms were so complimentary and helpful and we had such a good time. The weather at the park that day was beautiful and Scarlett had a blast.
First things first, the cupcakes! They turned about pretty great I think. We just laid them out in a row to emphasize the rainbow effect. These adorable cupcakes took a LOT of time...a shocking amount of time, really.
Here's the extra big and extra awesome rainbow cupcake we made for Scarlett. She licked every morsel of frosting off that cupcake, but didn't take a bite of the actual cake part. I ended up throwing the whole thing away. Oh, well, she didn't need the extra sugar anyway.
I bought chicken nuggets and pizza from Dominoes for everyone to eat, but I did throw in these rainbow fruit skewers as well. They were also a hit.
Here is the more attractive of the two food tables all laid out with 15 little kids eying all of those cupcakes, waiting for their chance to dig in!
Here's the gift table and the bubble solution for the kids. Notice the Rainbow Brite picture. That way no one mistook this for any ordinary rainbow party. We had a bubble machine going most of the time, too. Sadly, I didn't get any pictures, but the kids LOVED it. Toddlers and bubbles really do go hand in hand.
Here's the family picture minus Desmond. He gets really fussy when he misses his naps, so I left him at home with a babysitter. Hopefully, he won't be scarred for life because of it. We brought home some huge rainbow mylar balloons and he got hours of entertainment and laughter out of them. So, I figure we're good!
This one is just too cute not to put on the blog.
After her nap and beginning the process of opening all her presents. She got more presents on her birthday than she did on Christmas!
Here she is wearing wings she got for her birthday while looking at pictures of Wes's side of the family that his mom sent her. She'd point at each person and say, "Who dat? Who dat? Who dat, Mommy?" She'd be a huge hit in New Orleans during football season.
Desmond...eying the rainbow balloon thinking, "What in the world...?"
Desmond...laughing at the rainbow balloon thinking, "What is this colorful, amazing, floating sensation?!"
Scarlett also got a bike which makes her so happy. I can't believe how fast she picked it up! She can whiz all over the neighborhood on it. Luckily, she got that Rapunzel doll for her birthday, so she has a barbie doll to ride on her new bike's handlebars.
Well, that about wraps up her birthday events. She is such a bright shining light in our lives. I love her so much and her adorable mannerisms and inquisitive personality. I wish all of our friends and family far away could know her as well as we do and frequently see in person what a sweet and loving girl she is. Hopefully, our family blog gives you some insight.
Happy 3rd Birthday, Scarlett! We love you!
