We had a small gathering of family at Nana and Poppa's house to celebrate Emma's 4th birthday. The party was a Strawberry Shortcake themed party because about a month ago Brandie took the girls to Toys R Us and Emma saw a Strawberry Shortcake dress and wanted it, and kept telling us she wanted to wear it to her birthday party. Because of her persistence, we decided to ask if she wanted that as a theme and she said yes!
The entire month leading up to her party, she was also insistent that she have cupcakes, not a birthday cake. We decided to make them ourselves, which Brandie decorated awesomely. However, 4 days before the party Emma decided she needed a cake to blow out her candle on, so we got her a small cake as well; anything for the birthday girl!
Overall a great time was had by all. We got to see family we don't get to visit too often, Emma had a blast opening all of her gifts, and we had a lot of fun celebrating with our bright, funny, and precious four year old!
