zoë's 4th birthday party

Thursday, January 3, 2013

I thought this was the perfect time for a "princess party" - Zoë's 4th birthday. I went with pink - and a surprise visit from Cinderella. With three birthdays in a row it's hard to make them totally different, it's a little intense scrambling to get it all done but once it is, I have a year to rest up!
This party had many things similar to Beckett & Poppy's parties...my friend Mika took the photos for me, Sonia from Sweet Sugary Things made the cookies & my friend Denise made the cake - how perfect are those roses?! I follow Sheila from Pink Ribbon Bakery on Instagram, she makes amazing cupcakes (and cakes) & delivered the most delicious, beautiful cupcakes for Zoë's party.
Months ago, as I was walking out of swim lessons with the kids I picked up a card from Princess Dreams Vancouver and tucked it away in my desk. That card came in handy when I decided to splurge & have Cinderella show up at the house for an hour to read the kids a story, sing & entertain them. Cinderella had 12 kids eating out of the palm of her white gloved hand. It was amazing to watch the magic.
Like her parents, Zoë loves a party so it was a thrill to throw this one for her. With three parties in a row our kids are becoming quite skilled at celebrating, not a bad skill to have.
Beckett was the only boy at the party, that was okay with him. He thought Cinderella was fun & he enjoyed getting a little sparkly eye shadow with everyone else. The girls love his dinosaurs & he loves their princesses. Perfect.

happy 2nd anniversary

Today Mike & I celebrated two years anchoring CTV News at Six. I love this job.
