Fancy Nancy Birthday Party!

Thanks to the help of my Mom and Audra, Adam
and I were able to pull off Adalynn's birthday
party with her friends. It was complete with Dress ups,
Pass the Purse game, Dress up Relay Races,
Fancy Craft, Dancing, Parfaits, and a Pinata!
However I must say that there is a tie between
my two favorite parts of the event.

My Mom deserves an award for her animated reading of "Fancy Nancy". She began by telling each one of the girls that they were "beeutiful!" by name and when she asked the girls who they thought she thought was the most "beeutiful", they all happily exclaimed Adalynn! She joyfully replied "No, Me of course!" And with that she won them over as they proceeded to happily sit for several minutes and listen to her tell the story of a little girl who loves everything fancy. It was very silly and very fun. Thanks Mom!

The Cute Butlers, who showed up to help serve parfaits and assist where they could. However for the "help", I will say that I found them hiding out upstairs more than once watching football. I am still giving them an award just for showing up. They are both good sports.
