We turned our little Katy four today! I say it that way because we actually “turn” her four a wee bit early, in October of each year. Being born four days before Christmas just isn’t fun for any kid so we have hers a little early and she doesn’t have to share her day with a single Christmas tree!
This was her first big party, up until now its been family gatherings. I believe there were fifteen or sixteen kids there, trying to count kids on a playground can be rather difficult so I’m making an estimate! Katy had a wonderful time and we all agreed that this was likely the smoothest party we have ever thrown!
We served pulled pork bbq sandwiches with my sauce for the adults along with a german potato salad I made this morning. The kids got a menu of Katy’s favorites: Pb&j’s, grapes, carrots, and cheese puffs. The cake went over really well with only my son and his cousin balking at having to eat a “girl” cake!
Let me just say, for the record, that I was tired when I made this cake! The inside is purple, per Princess Katy’s request! The hairbow she is wearing is one I actually made last night thanks to the instructions of Beth at her Make a Hairbow site! I had never made a hairbow before and was pretty darn surprised at how nice my first effort looked!
