June's Alice in Wonderland tea party finally came to pass. I really wanted to make this a special birthday party for June. It's her first year in school so she was dying to invite her new friends over. Plus, I've struggled so much with morning sickness lately that June has had to take on many new jobs and really pull some weight around here. I wanted her to have a special day and show her how much her dad and I love and appreciate the good girl she is.
We had big plans to party outside on the back porch, but we should have known better. Oklahoma weather can never be trusted! So after a week of working like a dog and a morning filled with chaos trying to pull it all together, we celebrated high tea with the un-birthday girl inside.
Nana Deb and Audra painted all of these characters from the movie and shared them with us. Winnie had to have her picture taken with all of them!
June looked even more beautiful than the real Alice in her dainty costume. We got it on clearance after Halloween, so she's been waiting an awfully long time to try it out.
June has made some wonderful friends in her kindergarten class this year. I think they had a great time helping June celebrate turning 6.
Some snacks and decorations . . .
We enjoyed "lime sherbet tea," Eat/Drink me sweets to help us shrink and grow, and heart-shaped pizzas, thanks to Dad's sweet baking skills.
Leave it to Sofie to show up dressed as the Cheshire cat. This girl always knows how to party in style!
Hailey told me that she may be a little girl, but she had a big smile to share. June loves this gal.
We let the kids paint their own tea cups. Here they are hard at work.
Then we braved the ominous clouds for a bit to enjoy a golf game in the back yard. It was our version of Alice in Wonderland croquet.
We finished up with presents, singing and cake.
We sure love our June Bug. Happy birthday little lady! Can't believe you've been making us smile for 6 years!
