Im the fancy teacher

Natalie loves to play pretend. I wish I had live feed into this room with us. Natalie has all of her stuffed animals (babies) lined up against the wall and she is taking them up to the front of her class one by one to either say a prayer, sing a song, or give a "talk". She is playing church with her sunbeams. Overheard during one of the prayers was her classic prayer line:
"Us love everything us Love"!
She says this every time she prays. Its awesome. You sum up all of your blessings in one sentence. She is a great teacher. Boots is lined up beside the animals, poor kid is getting strung around with the pretend babies. But he loves it. He is her little puppet and will do what she wants when she wants... until he pulls it all off and starts throwing the babies around the room with his new manly roar. He has to show us all who is the man!
Today there are special babies because the "new kids" in the class are from her birthday party. She had 7 little girls over for a FANCY NANCY party this morning and it was awesome. I have to admit, I think I did an awesome job. The place was all decked out in pink and purple boas, streamers, and balloons. yes, there are TONS of pictures (not very good ones either) because who knows is I will ever go all out like this again. It was so much fun though!
The decorating went into the wee hours of morning, 345 I got to bed. But Justin and Andrea came over to help and we got creative with how to hang the crepe paper high up the wall!
Then the final touches. I made this banner and it took me a long long time, but it was worth it. Love it.
Boas and Crowns in one room waiting to be dressed up in! (soo dark I know.)
Then into the kitchen. little foods with little frilly toothpicks for little frilly girls!
And the party began with coloring pages while everyone arrived.
Then a little Fancy Nancy story time. It is SUPER intimidating with all these little ears, and adults in the room listening to me read!
Then into the kitchen for some etiquette lessons, PINKIES UP LADIES!! We learned how Nancy eats and how to speak french. MERCI!
After lunch we headed back into the other room for makeup, manicures, and bracelet and necklace making.
They all got boas and tiaras and REALLY enjoyed looking at themselves in the mirror!! I love watching little girls see themselves and think they are so pretty!
Group shot? NOT POSSIBLE. It is really hard to get a bunch of girls to smile, let alone look. So we tried pinkies up picture.
Last we headed to the KINGS CROWN for parfaits! That is fancy for Sundaes!! I learned that little 4 year olds LOVE sprinkles!! mmmm, I am still waiting for my turn to go in the kitchen and make mine!
Natalie got some fun gifts, everyone was so thoughtful and sweet to come and bring fun things for Nat. This was one of her favorites, more hair. I think it is awesome that family from all sides give her long hair and think it is funny. She thinks it is real and LOVES to have long hair. Seriously guys, awesome. She loves it.

SOOOO after a really fun few hours with girly girls, the party ended and we are STILL having a blast with everything fancy. I had so much fun today, and I am sooo not 4! I love having little girls!

I have TONS of other blog updates to make (Halloween parties, John and Emmas Visit, etc.) But I am trying to space them all out since I always overload the pictures.

Madison had a blast! She's been showing me all day to hold my pinkie out when I drink. And she spent the afternoon making pictures to hang on the wall for "fancy lessons". VERY well done Jen! Cute, cute party. And yes, your banner is awesome. You should keep it for the next party!

Molly might not have been the best party participant (little turd)...but she had an absolute blast!! She hasn't stopped talking about it...and she has yet to take off the pink boa she originally declined. ;) Such a fun party!! And any time she takes a drink now she says, "Pinkies up!"
