Our little 5 year olds

A bit late but better then never.  Our little girls turned 5 almost 3 weeks ago.  We were busy getting their party together.  Traditionally we have had parties where the kids invite a few friends.  We play some games and have a pinata.  I don’t think the girls really enjoy this type of party so I asked them if they would like a different type this year….a tea party.  They jumped up and down with joy.  Quinn quickly added in that she wanted a fancy tea party, the kind where you have real dishes not kid plastic dishes.  Okay Quinn, got it.

Ted and I kind of went all out for this one.  We started the morning with some fancy hair.  I of coarse can not do this so we got the help of my sister-in-law’s sister.    IMG_5079

While we were gone, Ted and the boys went all out and decorated the house with candles, rose petals, lace, tool (think wedding decor), pink and purple flowers, butterflies, beads, etc.  By the time we were on our way home, the boys were ready to escort the girls in on a path of petals to the craft table where Jenna, Quinn and a few girls made flower crowns.  The boys were kept busy helping wrap flowers on the crowns, escorting the girls around the house, serving them food, refilling their plates.  IMG_5094Luke was very hesitate and did not want to participate but half way through the party he did admit he was having lots of fun making the girls feel special.  Don’t worry they got to eat some food too. IMG_5097Not sure how to top this party next year but I am sure the girls will have a say in it.  Here are the girls interviews which I actually did on their Birthday.
