A couple of friends that we invited to her party weren't going to be able to come, so we were able to meet them a few days before her birthday at the McDonalds Playland for some fun play time. They even brought her a gift. So sweet!

After gifts, we ended the evening with the Birthday Cake ice cream she picked out at the store.
So, all of that was on Friday, her actual birthday. Then on Saturday, we had her Pinkalicious party.
(If you're not familiar with this book, the short version of it is that Pinkalicious eats too many pink cupcakes and turns entirely pink. The doctor diagnoses her with "Pinkititis" and tells her the only cure is to eat green food to return to normal.)
I hung balloons outside the house and put a sign on the door so our guests would start to feel Pinkalicious as soon as they saw our house.
I set up the food table in the living room.
Everything was pink of course! And I made a banner with her name for the front of the table.
Here's the cake Halie and I made. It was strawberry, so it was even pink on the inside, too!
We even had pink popcorn!
On the coffee table, I set up the book, pink M&M's, and one of Halie's Pinkalicious toys with a Happy Birthday note on it. And her Pinkalicious doll had to be in there somewhere too, of course.

We started off the party by reading the book so that everyone was familiar with it. The girls munched on the pink M&M's while I read.
I had a little photo-op area set up in the kitchen with all of Halie's Pinkalicious dress up stuff, and we hung a tablecloth for the background.
They made a huge mess and had TONS of fun!
The finished creations.
Then it was present opening time!
The girls had fun helping her open her big gift from Mommy and Daddy.
A crib and highchair for her baby dolls. (Nana and Papaw DeLamarter ordered her a toy baby monitor to go with it. I know she'll be SO excited when that gets here!)
Then they headed outside for some play time in the yard.
When the party came to an end, I passed out these favors to each of the girls and told them to be sure and eat their green food so they wouldn't turn pink from all that pink food they ate.
