Bayleigh's third birthday party was Saturday night and except for the guest of honor being under the weather, it was a magical night.
After seeing Tangled in the theater, she declared she wanted lanterns like that for her birthday. We didn't release thousands of lanterns in her honor, but we did suspend a few dozen throughout the back yard.
In addition to the lanterns the yard twinkled with lights from votives in mason jars.
We kept the food simple, take out pizza. Instead of a cake, I tried my hand at making cake pops.
Not difficult at all, but very time consuming. I can't say I'm eager to do it again any time soon, but they were a big hit.
The main event of the event of the evening was the movie.
We watched Tangled under the stars.
Thanks to the incredible know how of my uncle Jack and his access to the fancy equipment through his work, the movie was projected onto the back of Bayleigh's playhouse. We borrowed a movie theater popcorn machine and Uncle Casey churned out the popcorn.
On a less happy note, yesterday Bayleigh's puppy, Willie was injured. His jaw is broken and will have to be wired shut so that it can properly heal. He will have to be fed through a feeding tube. His surgery will take place Wednesday. We'd appreciate any prayers you could send up for this sweet little guy and hopefully he will be up and running again very soon.
