Third Birthday = Pinkalacious

My terrible two year old became a feisty three year old today. Here she is modeling her birthday outfit made by Momma!

We based the party on one of her favorite books called Pinkalicous by Victoria Kann. The story is about a little girl who eats too many pink cupcakes and develops pinkitis. The doctor tells her to cure this condition she will have to eat green. It is a darling book, there is also a purpalicous and goldalicous story as well by the author.

We enjoyed bouncing in the backyard.

A friend helped read the story to the kids while I got the food set up. (Mom you can see my garden space to the left...I promise I'll take a picture at some point...maybe when it is more mature.) And the bubble machine was a big hit as well.

We colored some pinkalicous coloring pages from the author's site. The expression on my daughter's face was more her demeanor for most of the party. She had several meltdowns and blow ups!!! Lord help me when she is a teenager.

We had a pinkeriffic spread with strawberry applesauce and cupcakes, pink lemonade and some animal crackers and goldfish. And some green grapes and green veggies to make sure we didn't turn pink from the pink goodies.

The cupcakes were the hit of the day!

Many dress up outfits were received by her highness!

Brother was a good sport about all the pink.

One tired girl at the end of the party having a snuggle with Daddy. I was able to get pinkalicious crowns from Burger King several weeks ago as a party favor for everyone, which was really fun to add to the theme of the party. Shhh, don't tell Daddy...he's anti fast-food...but this gal was having a whopper jr. craving! And it's a good thing, aren't those crowns super cute?
Happy Third Birthday Miss Pinkalicious!
