For her birthday party, we did a "girly" train theme (pink and navy) at Happy Playland!
She was over-the-moon about her party. I swear that she literally jumped up and down for 2 hours, excitedly greeting all her friends and shouting "It's my birthday!!" One of the cutest things she did was take each of her friends and bring them around to meet her grandparents and aunts. Love!
The see-saw was a big hit (and consequently a big source of fighting!)
Uncle Matt loves to rile up the Williams girls!
We were so glad our sweet families could come to the party too!
After about an hour of playing, I figured all the kids would be worn out and ready for food, but I had to reluctantly drag them to eat! Guess I was completely off to be worried that Happy Playland might be too familiar for Olivia since we go there so much!!
And, speaking of food, I worked really hard to make these cute little "train" cars for all the food. But then I forgot to take pictures of them. So here is a blurry pic, just for the memory book!
After breakfast (kolaches, donut holes, chocolate chip muffins and fruit), we literally had to beg Olivia to let us sing to her because she wanted to play more. She obliged us long enough to do the Birthday song and then she ran back to play -- she did not even taste one bite of her cupcake. (And it was her loss because they were delicious!).
It was also great to have 2 of my closest childhood friends, Lisa and Kate, at the party with their little girls who are now friends with Olivia.
After the party, the family came back over to watch Olivia open presents -- by this point, she had been awake for 7 hours and was about spent. She started flat our refusing to smile for any pictures and her little eyes were very tired! But, thankfully she rallied and opened up some great presents from her sweet family!
Tutu also got her this Halloween spider -- I'm not sure she knows quite what to think of it! ;)
Yazzie and Naz got her lots of Princess games. (Note: This week we have done a lot of princess playing -- she would much rather play 'babies' than the actual game unfortunately. Most times we make it through about 2 minutes of Princess Candy Land before she announces that one of the Princesses is crying and doesn't want to play anymore. Then she will "rock" the princess like its a baby, put it back in the box and tell us to be quiet because it is "princess nap time.")
One of my parents' sweet family friends got her these 2 beautiful dresses that she immediately had to try on!
And Mimi & Grandpa got her some Frozen characters, a "toddler" camera and a beautiful bracelet.
We ended the party with a tackle hug for Aunt Naz and a nap!
