Also, I confess. I totally copied my friend's tea party idea. Actually, that's not quite true: I know it is not possible for me to pull off a tea party such as my friend threw for her daughter. But I thought it was a cute idea. So I did a way-scaled down tea party, and even that I could not have pulled off without Peter and Sheri to help me decorate and put it all together. Whew, so glad they were here. Sheri even asked a couple of times..."Uh, what would you have done if we hadn't been here?" Freaked out, that's what. So thanks!
And it turned out just fine. Adorable, in fact. I borrowed tea cups from a couple of friends and made cupcakes that actually turned out cute if not spectacular. (I don't need spectacular, I just need pretty good!) Sheri got all the girls in dress ups with fancy hair. My dear friend Myca went nuts making tutus for the little girls as a party gift and the four cousins did a LOT of twirling on the grass. They were a hit. Bundle was the perfect birthday girl and we really had a nice afternoon celebrating her wonderful three years.
