Lily Kate's Mermaid 3rd Birthday Party

Lily Kate turned THREE!
After not seeing her little girlfriends all summer, Lily was ready to party. The entire week leading up to it, all she could talk about was her party.
Once I saw these mermaid skirts, the theme was locked in.  It wasn't too hard to convince Lily Kate that she wanted a mermaid party. Sparkly, check. Costume, check. Girly, check. It fit all of her requirements.
She perfected her mermaid posing before everyone got there.
The spread: fruit, turkey & pb&j sandwiches for the kids, chicken salad for the adults...
...every kind of Goldfish we could find...
...more cake than 4 little girls could ever eat...
...oyster cookies (the pearls are sixlets)...
...marshmallows dipped in blue candy melts, graham cracker crumbs, plus a goldfish...
...jello and gummy octopi...these were the favorite...
One of EVERYTHING, please.
For games we "went fishing", put sea creature stickers on their goody bags, filled containers with sand and made a HUGE mess in Lily's room.  The girls decided it was time to open presents and steathily ripped into everything with the help of one sneaky older brother.
Cora, Lily Kate, Naomi and Maddie had a squealing, girly good time.
I guess I should have seen it coming but 3 years flew so fast. As all kids with older siblings, everyone ELSE thinks she's older...mostly because she talks sooooo much.  But in my mind and in her's when she's in the mood, she is still my baby.  It was a Happy Birthday.
