Tomorrow morning is going to be the best morning ever.
Analeigh, my (almost) four year old little girl, is obsessed with birthdays. Mainly her own and she begins planning then next one before the last one has even passed. We have had blue and pink and zebra first birthday party, monsters inc second party and last year a care bears third party! As she neared four, I wanted something smaller, something that involved less busy work of creating decor and favors.. (let’s be honest, I am only four years in and I am already giving up party planning… poor Ana.. lol)
We went to a skating party and she wanted that. We went to a swimming party and she wanted that. We went to a party at a cheer gym and she wanted that. I came to the conclusion that homegirl likes everything. She even very enthusiastically agreed to have another church party. So long as there is a cake she is happy. So she mentions to me randomly that she would like to have her party at Chuck E. Cheese. (How does my three year old know about Chuck E. Cheese? I thought, but apparently there is a commercial on Nick) so when we decided that Tim and I would be taking an opportunity to go on a cruise in April (setting sail on her birthday) that we would move the party up a few weeks and let it be a complete surprise.
As in, she has no clue what tomorrow holds. NO CLUE. and we are not telling her where we are going until we get in the car.
We have invited a small group of her little friends and I cannot wait to see her face when they are all there! A tried and true surprise party of the most exciting kind! CHUCK E. STINKING CHEESE!
And the best news, it was cheaper than any of the parties I have ever thrown! AND I didn’t have to do ANYTHING but order the reservation online!! WINNNNNNING.
I hope I can sleep tonight! Photos to come…
but in the meanwhile, here is a shot my girl let me take today during a photoshoot in the studio. The little girl that was here asked to have curls like Ana today, and her mama replied “Baby, those curls came from Jesus!” haha! so true.
Enjoy your weekend, I know that we will!
