Yesterday was Xoe’s fourth birthday and we had a party for her at Miller Knox Park, in Richmond, California. We kept the party small, there were only three girls invited, and one couldn’t make it.
Xoe and the girl across the street, one of the girls who was invited to the party, made cupcakes for the party. The Theme was Butterflies and the colors were mainly pink.
Here is a video of Xoe blowing out the candles.

After we ate cake, it was time for Xoe to open her presents

Xoe gave each of her guests gift bags to take home. The gift bags were filled with all kinds of goodies; a coloring book, crayons, paints, color wonder kits, a slinky, a Tiara, a whistle, a microphone, note pads, lip gloss, a puzzle, a lighted magic wand, and some other fun stuff that little girls like. Each gift bag had 8 balloons attached to it.
We had a butterfly Pinata, and I took lots of videos, this is a picture taken by Nana with me shooting video of Xoe opening her presents. I am the one wearing green.
Here is some vidoe of the girls hitting the pinata, in this video the pinata has not broken yet.

All in all, it was a great little birthday party, Xoe enjoyed herself and so did her guests. We had cheese and crackers as a snack, and Nana made that platter, and the cheeses were so good. Xoe has been talking about her birthday party all day today and she already is looking forward to her 5th birthday party.
