Brylee turned four today!!
Brylee was supposed to have her big party with friends this year. We had been talking about it and planning it. One morning I was double checking what she wanted so that I could get invitations out and she told me she didnt want all her friends she just wanted Grammy and Grampy to come. So that's what we did. It really ended up being a blessing for me, 'cuz we were right in the middle of all that remodeling, and it would have been very hard to have a bunch of extra kids running around.

So we stared off Brylee's big day with a breakfast of French toast with strawberries and whip cream, with a side of bacon.

During breakfast, Brylee got three different birthday phone calls. She was feeling pretty special!

Brylee asked for a cake with a butterfly on it and flowers. So this is what we came up with. (She also picked a lemon cake with sherbet to go alongside. Later she realized that wasn't her favorite combo. One or the other was fine, but not together. Oh well, now she knows for next time.)

In the evening, we had Grammy and Grampy come for pizza and pink lemonade. And then of course presents and cake. Brylee got a new Ken doll form Grammy (for the dollhouse) and some cute clothes. She got some workbooks (she's always begging for homework) clothes, candy, and a dollhouse from us. Liberty gave her some money!

She seemed to like her gifts, but I have to post the video of her opening the dollhouse.

I think the video says it all, but in case you are having a hard time following what is being said, I'll recap. The attice of Brylees dollhouse is on hinges, so we put a basketball up there to disguis the appearance of the dollhouse. When she opened up the gift, she zeroed in on the ball instead of the house. She absolutely loves basketball. She practices dribbling all the time and like to watch it with her dad on tv. So it was pretty funny. She did like the doll house too. She just had to look at it and understand what it was!
