Ryleigh Turns Four

The Decorations

The Favors
(also used as part of the decor)

Dipped Pretzel Rods

The ones on the left are dipped in caramel, chocolate, & white chocolate, then sprinkled with pink & orange colored sugar. The ones on the right are dipped in caramel, chocolate, sliced almonds & then drizzled with white chocolate. They were reeeeallly yummy & we'll definitely be making them again!

The Cake
This didn't turn out the way I envisioned it in my head, so wasn't overly thrilled with it. But...the birthday girl LOVED it & that's all that mattered!

And finally...The Birthday Girl
who was absolutely pleased as punch with her party, cake & gifts. She thinks she's big stuff now that she's four. The other day she asked to do something & Jeff told her that maybe she could when she was older. (I don't remember what it was, but it was definitely something that she won't be doing until she's A LOT older.) She sighed & said with much exasperation, "But Daddy, I'm four years old!"
