Get ready for the onslaught of photos..........
Remember that Doll House I keep referring to? The one I spent so much time making prettier for her? Well, turns out, all it needed was some fancy princess castle furniture from Auntie Alex to make it fun to play with.
This doll was the gift that Steve and I bought for her. It took a lot for me to break down and get it for her. She kept pointing it out to Grandma in the toy store and said it was what she really wanted for her birthday. Niamh has so many dolls and stuffed animals that she loves for about 2 hours and then go in a pile in the round red tub in the play room. I figured I might as well get her the toy she asked for and won't play with, rather then get her the toy she didn't ask for and won't play with. I know you are dying to know if she plays with it? What do you think?
On to celebration #2 at Grandma's and Grandpa's house.....
Makeup, obviously a grandparent gift.
Makeup, obviously a gift that Finn enjoys as much as Niamh. He applied this himself.
Pumpkin Pie! Her favorite dessert!
And the Finale, her party with her friends at Paint The Town at U Village, followed by lunch at Pallino Pastaria. A venue I would definitely repeat.
Niamh has a fun group of friends she has met in kindergarten. Though the #2 person on her list of invites was her teacher (suck up), we thought it best to let teachers have rest from their students on the weekends.
Yes, that is Jaya with the Buckaroo hat on. I'm telling you, that girl's style is tough to match.
Not shy for the camera. These girls are all personality.
I was only a little surprised that Finn chose a purple monkey as his art piece.
During lunch, this Sweetie told me she could only eat a little bit of cake because she is getting a cavity...so she only ate the frosting. Love her restraint and discipline.
My favorite shot from all the parties!
Happy 6th birthday, Niamh....again. Guess what, Girlie, December is someone else's birthday month. I'm not talking about that baby in the hay. I'm talking about ME, your Mama. I think I'm ready for you to start referring to ME as "Birthday Girl."
