Katie's 4th Birthday - Friday

The big day arrived. Much was planned.

First stop to the pool. Only the second time Katie has ever been swimming in a pool so she was so excited. High as a kite. She had the best time with her friend Ella - probably the highlight of all the activities she did. Much of the excitement was associated with wearing a "bra"!!!
It's hard work turning four!

It was then home to do baking - something I hate, something Katie loved. We made fairy wand biscuits to take to creche - she loved rolling out the dough, putting in the stick and putting on sprinkles. Then onto the cup cakes with the very important job of the patty pans and sprinkling with pink fairy dust.

Then off to teddy creche for birthday/Christmas party. The face painting was out in force again and Katie and her creche buddy Christall could not resist matching Barbie Fairytopia faces. Finally onto dinner....you could not forget the peas could you. Well they were there!
Smiles all round. A happy girl and a very tired Mum!
