Remee's Garden Party

I think it's pretty obvious by now that I love to throw a party.  My little ones birthday parties especially!  With past years I've thrown big BBQs for Remee where the family all comes out and we bask in the setting sun.  This year, I thought keeping it a bit smaller might be more fun for her.  She would just be able to play with her friends without having to dodge all of us annoying adults trying to constantly give her kisses and hugs.
Remee really wanted to play outside with her friends for her birthday, hence the garden theme, so I went along with it.  We had a picnic set up with all of Remee's favorite things to eat.  Each of the little girls got a flower crown, which sadly they were only thrilled about for 2 minutes before it ended up on the ground. And they also got a bug catching bucket to find snails, lady bugs, worms, and whatever else they could dig for in the dirt. 
When it came time to paint their flower pots, all the kids were on board.  I found some cute little aprons from the dollar store to help keep their outfits clean and each little girl had a place at the table with their name by a flower pot.  I'll be the first to admit the there was more paint on their hands than on their pots.  It's all about having fun though right? 
Remee opened presents and jumped for joy with each one. 
I can't believe that my little lady is 4!  The years have past by too fast, and I really love watching her grow up.  She's our little sassy pants, and we love her to bits!
