Watermelon Birthday!

 She originally wanted a Barbie birthday, 
but she is not into Barbie (yet) so
Since she loves watermelon,
we thought a watermelon birthday would be perfect for her!
 First, we needed proper clothes for a watermelon birthday!
Tie Dye it is!
 I love tie dying...
 My inspiration was found here
but, I didn't want to spend a lot of money
 so we made them ourselves!
(the boys only did the green)
 Then, we (I) decorated the house...
 with watermelons, of course.
 These abstract watermelons may or may not have been done
 around 1 in the morning.
 Love how everyone surrounds the birthday kiddo!!
 Time for breakfast!
Watermelon waffles anyone?
Idea found here
(I just made my regular recipe and added food coloring and choco chips)
 She's sporting our old Tae Kwon Do gear here...she's 4, what can I say?

 Even Daddy was sporting tie dye!
 Sims is showing off his camo tie dye!
 Onto the cake!
The watermelon cake!!
Recipe found here
It was delicious!
 Of course there was watermelon at every meal!

 There may be a little spit all over this cake
(note to self:  Teach Sweetie Pie how to blow)
 Yummy and purty!
 Craft time!
(actually we made these the next day)
 Cute, huh?
My own idea!
 Toes painted like watermelon, by big sister!
My sweet, sweet watermelon girl!
