I can’t believe my baby girl is 4! I know this is totally cliché, but seriously – when did that happen??
We had Brynn’s party on her actual birthday, November 19th, and it was a fantastic time (minus her epic tantrum that resulted in a time out; of course, that time out also resulted in her passing out since she was exhausted but had refused to take a nap, so I guess it turned out OK in the end since she got a much needed power nap in!).
As I blogged here, Brynn had a hard time deciding on a theme, but once we settled on My Little Pony, I was a little nervous how it would all turn out.
It ended up being a big success, I think! Everyone seemed to have a great time and this was the first party that I didn’t feel rushed to finish decorating or getting things ready, which was definitely a nice change!
I thought I would share a few pictures from the day. As usual, I did not get a lot of great shots of the birthday girl herself, except for when my sister stepped in to take some pictures of her when she got to blow out the candles on her cake. Note to self: Take more pictures!! Oh well. I definitely got more than I usually do (which tends to be almost none, since I never remember to take pictures of anything it seems).
Sorry in advance for the quality of these pictures – the light was terrible! I really must also add “learn to take pictures with our ‘good’ camera” to the ol’ to-do list, too! 😉
Side note – For those who do not know (as we didn’t until Brynn started getting into My Little Pony), the “cutie marks” are the little designs the ponies have on their sides. Each pony has a different mark, and I used the cuties marks from some of Brynn’s favorite ponies (Twilight Sparkle, Pinkie Pie, Rainbow Dash, Rarity, Applejack, and Fluttersky) for the inspiration for the cookies. 🙂
Side note – In addition to the unicorn headbands, the kids also got their very own My Little Pony to decorate! Hasbro sells them here – they’re the “old” version of the ponies, but I thought this worked better for the boys. We didn’t decorate at them at the party due to time and space constraints, but hopefully everyone enjoyed taking them home to decorate! 🙂
Happy birthday, Brynn Evelyn! Daddy, Asher, and I love you a million bushels (as your namesake, my Grandma Evelyn, would say)!
