miss z's 3rd birthday

Sunday, November 6, 2011

Miss Zoë turned 3 in September...I can't believe it's November and I'm just posting these now. Time is flying by, my babes are now four, three & one! The theme for the party was Hello Kitty - she was a favourite of mine when I was a little girl and now she's a hit again. Damn that cat stands the test of time.
Zoë's party followed in the footsteps of Beckett and Poppy's parties - hey when something works you do it again and again! My friend Denise rocked the cake and food - come on, that Hello Kitty cake is the best! Sonia from Sweet Sugary Things came through big time with the cookies and Mika captured it all on film.
At the last minute I decided to hire a face painter....amazing! Of course every kid at the party got their face painted - except for Zoë....when push came to shove, she wasn't into it. Kristal from Faceaballoonza is great - a true artist!
If I had the energy I'd have a party every month...I love gathering with family & friends. But the reality is that it's exhausting, on every level. The prep, the party and the (ugh) clean-up wipes me out.
My mom made everyone white "Hello Kitty" ears...so sweet. Even Stanley got into the spirit.
Why is it that we're always attracted to the icing? When I was a kid I prayed for the corner piece of the cake, or better yet - a piece with a flower. Remember flowers made of icing? Heaven. Happy to see my girl is right on track with her love of icing.
Zoë's not quite into sharing that cupcake quite yet though.....xx
