Pinkalicious and the ER

Yesterday we celebrated J's 4th birthday with a super girly, princess pink, ballet dancer birthday party. The only prerequisite was that you had to come in lots of pink and dance til you were dizzy! We began planning several weeks ago and I was so excited to see our resident princess in action. But as the day drew on, I began to feel worse and worse...and just as the party was starting (and guests were arriving) I determined a trip to the ER was unavoidable. I was there the entire day...lovely. P held down the fort in princess-land and made sure all the little ballerinas had a superb time and that the birthday girl was thoroughly spoiled (he even snapped a few pictures in my absence). I had lofty ideas of beautiful pictures to share...but these will have to suffice. I think I'm pretty darn lucky P took any at all...between the cake serving, ballerina corralling, S bouncing, gift unwrapping, and cleaning! We will have a small celebration at home on Wed. for her real birthday. Hopefully I can redeem myself then!

Cupcakes fit for a queen (or ballerina!)

Party goodies

The birthday girl herself!

Taking her role pretty darn seriously...wouldn't want to miss out on an extra wish!

Now to deal with the aftermath of the party and trips to the Dr. to figure out what is going on. Hopefully I will be back to my regular wordy self soon!
