Libby's 4th Birthday Party!!!

Last year we didn't do a real birthday party for Libby. And the year before that she shared a birthday part with her sweet friend, Maliah. So this year, after all the hype about Gracie it was time to give Libby a big party. We decided to have a Mickey Mouse Clubhouse Party at our house - upstairs in the playroom. While the structured games like pin the tail on Mickey and Find Pluto's Doggie bones didn't quite go as planned and we ended up outside to set the active ones free, it ended up a great party. Libby dressed up like Mickey Mouse for the party and as everyone arrived she gave each of them their own Mickey ears. The little mice were served mac and cheese for lunch and then Mickey Mouse cake for dessert. Libby received some awesome gifts - many are so perfect for travel and since we have a big trip coming up I am one excited momma that our friends were so creative and thoughtful in their giving. Libby received everything from hotwheels cars and race tracks to Barbies and craft necessities. She continues to love the soccer goal my parents bought for her birthday and is IN LOVE with all the cars and tracks that Grammy, Papa Boots, and Wendy and Robbie (and Brooke) sent her. In fact, a couple of days later Libby got in trouble and the only discipline that worked was taking the cars and race tracks away for 2 days. She is missing those cars something fierce. Tomorrow she will get them back! Whew!

I can't believe Libby is 4. She is growing up incredibly fast and she is a FANTASTIC big sister. She loves on Gracie all the time and celebrates Gracie's milestones without any jealousy. She plays with Gracie and watches over her. She's such a big help to me - which is GREAT since Gracie is crawling now. I need the extra eyes and ears!

Here are the party photos:

Best Friends!
