Fancy Nancy Party

Anna loves Fancy Nancy...but Anna's mom loves Fancy Nancy even more! When we were deciding what to do for her 4th birthday party, Fancy Nancy was a shoe-in.

Seriously, if you have not read the Fancy Nancy books, you are missing out! Even if you don't have a little girl, you should check them out. They are way too cute!

So I thought I would share a few pictures from our soiree. The best part was making our house fancy. It was positively dripping with feathers, garlands, glitter, jewelry, flowers, and pink and purple everything! Luckily my mom was in town for the party and she helped me decorate, but somehow she managed to aviod being in a single picture!

Here is the table. Fancy, isn't it?

And here is the cake. I'm pretty happy with how it turned out.

Our first game was "Fancy or Plain" where I held up an ordinary object and a fancy object, and they had to pick the fancy one. They were VERY good at this! In this picture you can also see me in all my fanciness!

For playing the game so well they all get boas.

This is the only picture with all of the girls in their boas. They thought they were a little itchy. They sure look pretty though!

Our next game was freeze dance.

After that game they got shades.

Noah wasn't really into the freeze dance (the girly party freaked him out a little) but he was really sweet with Adeline and let her wear his shades.

Then we tried to walk with books on our heads. Fancy princesses can do this, but we discovered it is very hard to do with tiaras and fancy hair do's. Speaking of fancy hair do's...Carly's mom, Alissa, did Anna's hair for the party. She thought she was the queen of the world when she left for her hair appointment. It looked beautiful (and very fancy). Thanks Alissa!

Then we got bracelets.

I think putting on makeup was their favorite part. We did eye shadow, blush, and body glitter. Thanks, Bethany for helping with the makeup. (She's the one in the top hat!)

On to the Fancy Nancy Pull string pinata that was filled with rings and mini tiaras.

Here is Anna showing off her rings (or is she throwing gang signs?)

Snack break!

Opening presents...Bryn gave her this great Fancy Nancy game!

They're adorable...but the sun is in their eyes.

Here is the whole crew. Could they be any cuter?!?!

This is the Anna I know and love. Can you tell that her mom has killed herself to throw her the best Fancy Nancy party a 4 year old could ask for?

Finally smiling.

The kids did a great job drinking from the fancy goblets. I think they liked having a base they could wrap their little hands around. This is Allison.

Thinking hard about that wish!

Anna and Abby playing with the new toys.

Luke was hilarious! He left his shades and coat on the ENTIRE party. The girly party didn't bother him a bit!
