We got to celebrate our little friend Elena's third birthday at a Princess-Batman party last weekend. It was great fun and Lily was able to try on the birthday girl's dress up clothes. This cowgirl outfit was a hold over from Halloween, which apparently WalMart drastically reduces immediately following the holiday. Who knew? Lots of language opportunities with costumes!
The picture captures Lily's excitement perfectly for the outfit and the party. Lily continues to talk non-stop especially when it is something she wants to do such asking the birthday girl's uncle to move so she could have his chair (he very generously changed seats), asking the birthday girl's Great Grandparents for the icing roses off their cake (they were all over this request) and singing the Kindermusik goodbye song as we left the party.
Before we arrived, I was telling Lily that we would eat cake and ice cream at the party, but first she had to take a nap. She responded, "Then I will dream about cake and ice cream." Too fun!
