Though she is not quite 4, we celebrated MaryCollis' birthday yesterday. She wanted an Ariel party, so an Ariel party she had... but we went with a more under the sea theme. There were roughly a million people in attendance, and we had a blast!
Favors included seashells with hair ties inside, nail polish, and combs (dinglehoppers) for the girls; pirate bubbles, and "argggghhhh" bracelets for the boys.

Digging for treasure
peanut butter and jellyfish sandwiches
We had fun swimming with our friends and eating yummy food, then we opened presents with K-Love and LaLa. MC was all about the karaoke machine that looked like a Princess Sophia purse. You can sing to her music, or you can hook up your iPod and sing to your own music. Super cool. Thanks, Brody!

Playing on her brand new Samsung Tablet (courtesy of Gamma)
Of course her favorite gift was her Samsung Tablet from Gamma. She is PUMPED to have her own "iPad." She doesn't know I set the timer to only let her play between bath time and bed time. :)
Making her birthday poster for school
After we all had great naps, Auntie Jane and LaLa helped us make MC's birthday sign for school. They do a little geography/history/science lesson on how it takes you 365 days to turn a year older and it takes the Earth the same amount of time to orbit the sun. It's really cute.
Creating headbands from the kit Peyton gave us
So we had a wild Saturday night making her poster, then Sunday LaLa and I whipped out the headband kit Peyton gave MC. We made so many cute little headbands. MC will be pumped when she gets home from AWANA! It was a great party, and I can't wait to celebrate again this weekend!
