A Flower Fairy Birthday Party
It’s hard to believe that Chiquita’s birthday was well over 2 weeks ago and that I still haven’t posted any pictures, other than of her cake!?! What has happened to me? 😉 I just can not keep up with blogging anymore!
Chiquita had wanted a Flower Fairy Birthday Party ever since seeing the pictures from another little girl’s birthday. Even though it was just our family (my mom did stop by for a few minutes) she had a wonderful birthday, complete with some darling Flower Fairy Crowns sent as a gift from Twinkle Toes’ new pen-pal who recently had a Flower Fairy Birthday Party too!!
Here are a few more pictures from her special day:

In preparation for Chiquita’s birthday, the girls flipped through their cookbooks over and over trying to choose “just two” special treats to make during our party. They ended up choosing the “Fairy Garden Cottages” from the Fairies Cookbook and “Magic
Princess Fairy Wands” from the Pink Princess Cookbook.
One of the local coffee drive-thru chains in our area offers free drinks on your birthday, so we loaded up the car and headed to town. Chiquita choose a Strawberry Smoothie, and was SO excited when they handed her her very own HUGE drink!

Thank you, Charlotte, for the tip on cutting notches into the paper plates to make rolling the wands in the sprinkles a little bit easier!
I just loved the looks of concentration on my boys faces!
Didn’t they turn out pretty!?!

… cards from her Grandparents and our neighbors and a Flower Fairy Money Jar (aka: Piggy Bank) made by her siblings (their own idea) since she didn’t have one yet…
… a darling St. Bernadette doll
(The feast of St. Bernadette is a few days before Chiquita’s Birthday.)
… and a set
of Play Silks!
She wasn’t quite sure what to think of that bag of “cloth,” but as soon as I showed her a few of the possibilities we had a whole bunch of very excited children. Even the boys joined the fun!
Prayer of Mothers
Father in heaven, grant me the grace to appreciate the dignity which you have conferred on me. Let me realize that not even the Angels have been blessed with such a privilege—to share in your creative miracle and bring new Saints to heaven. Make me a good mother to all my children after the example of Mary, the Mother of your Son. Through the intercession of Jesus and Mary I ask your continued blessings on my family. Let us all be dedicated to your service on earth and attain the eternal happiness of your kingdom in heaven. Amen.
