Miss Madison's 4th Birthday Party

My sweet baby girl turned 4 last week.


If you've followed me for a while then you know my Mom usually makes something for each child, for her 2nd birthday it was Owl Pillows, and for her 3rd it was Crowns. This year was no different, she made each child a monogrammed apron, an icing bag, and a little statue of themselves.





We did cupcake decorating with all the kids.


She even bought cute wooden spoons and forks with a chevron design on them, you know we had to fit it in somewhere.


My Mom even made her a chair!



Every year we get a giant bounce house, Miss M loves it and would stay up all night playing in it if we let her. As it was she didn't take a nap and passed out playing with her new My Little Ponies on the couch :)


I found this drink on Pinterest and I might start drinking it daily, it's so freaking good. Sarasota Lemonade: Mosacto, Sprite, pink lemonade concentrate, and raspberries.

I also learned long ago that it's too stressful to cook so I order subway platters and pizza, but I did make this fruit salad and it was delish!



My Mom made the cake and it took all day and was pretty stressful so next year I'm making her order one. She loves for everything to be homemade, it makes it special for Madison but it's a hella lotta work.


I have to say it was probably the most delicious cake I've had, we will not be able to keep it in the house much longer I was already sneaking bites yesterday!


I wore the Kenzie tank dress from Kiki La Rue, love love love.
Miss M is wearing Naartjie Kids, I absolutely adore their clothing.
Oliver was there too, but I think he was busy playing ping pong and drinking beer so he never made it in any of the pictures. Oops.


I can't believe my baby is four! I've been telling her she's a big girl now so Mommy can't carry her when she is tired and she has to go pee pee by herself now. So far it's not working :)


She just tells me "I'm still 3".
Oh honey, we all wish we could stay young....

Love,
SkinnyMeg

  18. my youngest is going to be 4 in october. I am feeling you on trying to make them walk and go potty on their own. its so hard. My oldes was so much easier and is still more independent then my younger. My youngest is going to preschool in the fall and I am affraid its not going to happen because she hates being away from me, even when I go to work and she goes to the babysiter. its hard being a mom!

  39. Your mom is amazingly crafty and should have her own DIY website, everyone would be pinning her creations! I especially am in lovvvvve with the owl pillows .... I'd like to order one of everyone in the picture! Please ;) Miss M is lucky to have a mom and grandma that lovingly spoil her, she'll remember these birthdays always, I know I still remember all mine, so does my mom, but I don't think we both share the same feelings lol

  49. So your mom is basically amazing. I can't believe she made little statues of all the kids, that is so cute! It looks like Madison had a great birthday and she is just so adorable. Emmeline is already talking about her birthday and it is still a month away. I have a feeling it is going to be a long month. :)
