Happy Birthday, JoJo Bean

I know that I have been MIA, and I have loved it. Don’t get me wrong, I have missed you all, but I needed the break. I had so much jam packed into December that something had to give, for my sanities sake. Unfortunately blogging was that thing. But I’m back today for a very special reason. In 4 hours one of the most important days of the year will be over. My babygirl Johanna was born on January 12,2011 at 8:24pm and my world changed instantly. She is now 4 years old and I have no clue where the time as gone. Even as her birthday came I saw her personality become a little more mature. There’s pride in her voice when she says she’s 4 years old. It’s totally a big deal for her and I love it. But I’ve created a little bit of a monster…

This summer Hannie said “ooo, I know what I want for my birthday. A my little pony party!”. So since summer I have been gathering items to make that wish come true. But I knew that I would be exhausted so I figured we needed some kind of activity to go with that. Why not an indoor pool party? She loves the water, so it was the perfect fit!

Here are some of the photos from our pony party. The setup was taken before we were done setting up so please forgive the lack of signs to tell you what everything is. Also, please forgive me for there not being a real pony at the party. Johanna wasn’t understanding why that wasn’t possible…:

The Invitation. I had so much fun making this invite. It was colorful, and anything but boring inside, including a little treat for the guests.

And you can’t see the signs I made from this angle but there was Spikes Chips and Dip, Rainbow Dash Fruit, and Princess Celestia Veggie Platter.

The treats table! I will place the photos of the labels at the bottom if you would like to download them.
