Motherhood. Lawyer-dom. And maybe a few nice recipes.

Anatomy Of A Mustache Bash.

For those of you keeping track, Avery’s actual birthday was a few weeks ago.  Yet, we just had her party this weekend.  We had a party planned and ready to go when the stomach bug tragically struck our AJS.  She has been not-so-patiently waiting for her party ever since and has been refusing to acknowledge that she turned four.  Apparently, she could not shut the door on three until she had cake and danced with her friends.

This weekend, the long-awaited party happened.  You might have been expecting something more princess-y, but our pretty princess had a mustache-themed party in honor of her favorite band, Spaghetti Eddie, who was on-site for the big day.  She did, however, request a princess cake (request, denied).  I was a little worried that, after all the build-up, the party might not meet a certain tiny girl’s expectations.  Fortunately, the party delivered, and then some.  She was so excited when her friends started to arrive that all she could do was run around and militantly chant “supercalifragilisticexpialidocious” (we’ve been obsessively watching Mary Poppins lately).  The band struck up some tunes shortly after, and she danced the night away, followed by the long-anticipated cake.   

One of my favorite things about Avery is her ability to embrace the moment, and embrace the moment she did.  It was rather painful for me, too, when we had to cancel Avery’s party, but seeing the huge smile plastered on her face as she was surrounded by her favorite people completely erased all memories of party attempt #1.  Welcome to the big 0-4, Avery Jane.  You make our lives sparklier, pinker and happily more chaotic.  We can’t wait to see the adventures you will take us on this year!
