Three going on 13

In whirlwind fashion - even for me - we held Eve's birthday party on Saturday. My profound thanks to my wonderful family, we all came on about one day's notice - in costume, no less! Eve loves to dress up, so I asked everyone to come wearing a hat in her honor. On that note, I present to you:

A Viking and a Mongolian baseball player:

A Scottish grandpa and a trucker:

Indiana Jones:

A Japanese cowgirl:

A sunflower, a beekeeper, and a gardener:

And two gorgeous girlies:

$2 worth of party favors kept the kids (mostly) happy:

Even if it was a little windy for Iris's taste:

(She really didn't mind too much):

Eve wasn't a big fan of the breeze ("dis cwof, it keeps bwowing in my face!")

But she did give her seal of approval to all the wonderful presents:

Including basically a whole new wardrobe, which she promptly wanted to wear:

All at the same time (I've just now gotten the swimsuit off her this afternoon, over 24 hours later. Yes, she slept in it. Pick your battles, I'm telling you):

She also got a couple of classic little girl toys, in the way of an "angel" Cabbage Patch baby and a My Little Pony (character merchandising isn't nearly so offensive when it's something I remember fondly from my own childhood, somehow):

In short, it was a riotous success. We missed those of you who could not be there very much, and love you all the same. Happy birthday Evie!

So glad you had fun. I LOVE the hat idea! I might have to steal it one day for my girlie.

Great party Rachel. A big success. Such fun.

Cute idea w/ the hats! And, yes, it's true. Character merchandise loses lots of it's nausiating quality when it's nostalgic :) Happy birthday!

That was a good time. I'm happy she liked the swim suit so much! Very fun.

Her birthday party is cute. I love that she wanted to sleep in her swimsuit. I was the same way. Now I just wear my swimsuit around the house hoping it will call the sun to me, so I can go sun bathing.

Happy birthday Evie! She is so cute. Your blogs/pictures always make Arizona look like the greatest place to live.

Happy birthday EVE! Yea, I love the Iris pics too! They are all so cute and growing so fast! Love the hats on everyone.
