Yesterday was Ava's ballerina birthday party. It went really well and we had a lot of fun! She invited girls from her preschool class and her Sunday school class and we ended up with 10 little ballerinas. We had a Barbie ballerina movie on as they arrived and they also had some ballerina coloring pages to color. After everyone got here we had them put on their tutus and tiaras and Miss Morgan (Ava's dance teacher) gave a little ballet lesson. The girls were so cute! Most of them were really into it, but there were a couple who preferred to just watch.
After the lesson they had lunch. I made four kinds of tea sandwiches: peanut butter and jelly, cucumber and cream cheese, nutella and banana, and ham, swiss cheese & apple. We also had fruit and chips. They were all so well behaved at the table! After lunch we had cake and ice cream, then moved into the living room to open presents. Ava got lots of nice gifts and was very excited to open her presents!
Each little girl got to take a balloon, a ballerina cookie and her tutu and tiara home with her. Once the party was over Ava took a 3 hour nap and I was exhausted! I never had a girly birthday party before. It was so much fun to decorate the house with pink and sparkles and see all the frilly outfits. Having a girl is so much fun!
