Happy 4th Birthday Maggie Leu!!

Oh, it was well celebrated!!!

That morning Joel & I ventured over to the Crayonbox where we served up homemade blueberry pancakes for her entire class. Maggie was smiling ear-to-ear during the entire breakfast, either because she had her Mommy & Daddy there (I would like to think), or it was because everyone got to share in her love for SYRUP & WHIPPED CREAM on pancakes.

I picked her up from school later that day & we had afternoon tea at Lovejoy's tearoom just down the street. She insanely just loves having tea. From setting up the table to putting ALL the sugar & milk in the tea - it's just something she is way into right now. And I find she truely relaxes during our tea moments.

So we ran with the tea theme & had 11 little friends over for a birthday TEA PARTY!

THE cake. We talked a lot about what Maggie wanted on her cake all the days leading up to her birthday. And she wanted about a hundred different things ranging from a princess to a cat to her family...and when told it wouldn't all fit, her reply was 'just make it all really tiny mommy.' So as to not squash her expectations I had her draw out what she wanted on her cake and that's EXACTLY what I put on it. A Maggie Leu creation....

My nutty Maggie...

Maggie turned to her Nana the other day and said, 'Nana, you have big cracks in your face.' I held my breathe but was glad to find that everyone in the room found the humor in it...whew.
