Sunday was Ava's birthday party! My little pixie was was ready for her big day. It's not easy coming up with "Tinkerbell" themed food, so I googled the idea and came up with "Magic Wand cookies." The kids LOVED the cookies.
Sugar cookies cut into stars, flowers and hearts. Take them out of the oven and immediately insert lollipop sticks (medium length). When they harden, perfect little wands. :) Decorate with frosting.

Here's my little pixie in her Tinkerbell shirt. And a cute little headband we slipped on.

First gift to make an impression on Ava - karaoke microphoneThe kids loved to jump all over our nephew Brent. He's 13 and still really great with the young ones. Thankfully, he hasn't turned into a surly teenager. I think Lisa's little boy Andrew was trying to put a hex on him in this shot.

Tinkerbell cake! All over her face.

By the end of the evening Ava was just beat. Yes, I really did take the picture upside down.
One final one of Alexa. This girl loves the camera.
The party was fun and the weather turned out to be great. We were all WHIPPED by the end of the evening. Both Alexa and Ava were asking to go to bed!
Thanks for looking!
