Natalie’s 4th Birthday Party

by Mollie

This post is going to be heavy on the pictures, because they really do speak for themselves. We celebrated Natalie’s real birthday on March 1, but couldn’t schedule her party with friends until March 11. This is very confusing for a 4 year old! She very anxiously awaited the day of her party.

Andy took the kids to run errands in the morning so I could finish the cake…

6 layers of chocolate cake, with toasted marshmallow in between, and chocolate malt frosting on the outside.  I always have a stash of recipes I want to make on special occasions, and this is the one Natalie chose.

Natalie has been blessed with so many sweet friends (who also have awesome mommies… bonus!).

I think it took Ben a full 24 hours to come down from his sugar/party high! He was pretty wound up!

After the party, with the Curtis kids… these 4 spend a LOT of time together and always play so nicely!

I think you can tell by Natalie’s face that her party was a success!

    All these pictures are almost as good as being there! Thank you. Yes, Natalie has lots of very nice looking little friends, and I can tell they were all having a good time. Especially Natalie! Everyone was so attentive when Mollie was lighting the candles – fun to see. The boy pictures are nice too. :0)

    How fun I got to be there with these pictures! What a beautiful time you made for Natalie, Mollie. Her “little friends” look so sweet with her.And that was one KILLER chocolate cake. It’s a good thing March Madness only comes around one month a year! See you at the party this weekend!!!
