We made sidewalk chalk paint for Pen and her cousins to play with.

I'm guessing this cuteness  is the work of Celeste.

Miss Thing

She loved her day.

We had a fun day yesterday. Pen and Vi celebrated their 1st and 4th birthdays with their family. Grandma and Great grandma, uncles Charles and Tom, Aunt Linda and Uncle Kenny, And cousins Jess, Celeste and Deagan all came over. We were very happy that it was a bit cooler than it has been lately, and that the rain never really got to be more than a drizzle, and then the sun came out!

We had a bunch of food and icy cold drinks and two kinds of cupcakes made into a 4 and a 1 shape and decorated with fairies. Penelope had so much fun playing with her cousins and we loved having everyone over. The girls both recieved a bunch of great gifts, but I think the thing that pleased Penelope the most was the beautiful fairy dress that her cousin, Celeste, passed on to her. She is wearing it in all of the pictures, and it took much convincing to get her to take it off before bed last night. I was tickled to have a super cute dress we gave to Celeste years ago be passed on to Penelope. And both girls got so many darling new outfits from everyone.The girls were both so crazy after their party that it took me forever to get them to sleep. It was a really nice day!
