Birthday Weekend (Allison)

I've had some BIG weekends, but this one goes to the "top 5".

Friday was Allison's 5th birthday, so we made treats for her class party. Keeping with the Nutcracker theme we made soldiers for the boys and ballerinas for the girls.

Here are the final results.

At her school, when it's your birthday, you get to be the STAR. She took a bag of things that she liked and were special to her. Then everyone in the class got to ask her a question. It was very cute. She was also the lucky student to take Theodore (the class teddy bear) home for the weekend. You'll see him farther down.

After school, we started making the 48 cupcakes that would feed everyone at her party on Saturday. She loves to help!

She thinks glasses make girls look BEAUTIFUL!!!

Early Saturday morning, Theodore and Allie are ready!

We set up the treats.

Lined up the Nutcrackers.

This was the first group of painters.

It's cupcake time!

We even had a celebrity show up!

Saturday night, Jake and I went to his work Christmas Party. It was a lot of fun. They had it at this Cabaret Comedy House. Lots of singing, laughing and hanging out with friends.

Sunday was "girl" outing. Allie had invited 2 of her girlfriends (and their moms) to The Nutcracker. Unfortunately, Paige was sick. But we have plans for next year!

Show Time

By Sunday evening we were very tired. The irony was as I was getting ready to post this blog, I walked past Allie playing with her new presents. I just had to take a pic.

YEP! She's playing with the box!!!
