Selah's 4th Birthday Party

We had Selah's fourth birthday party right before Christmas at Chuck E. Cheese. This is a (very belated) post that is mostly for my sake because I like to have a digital record of my girls' parties and the blog is just the best place for it!

Having a birthday right at Christmas is just the worst because no matter what, it's going to be drowned out by Christmas festivities. But I was determined to give Selah an awesome party this year, close to the time of her actual birthday, whether very many people were able to attend or not. And surprisingly, many were! It was our first Chuck E. Cheese party and it was definitely a success.


Parties here are a little chaotic and crazy but still so much fun. My girls were old enough this time that I didn't have to hold their hands, walk them to every game, and coach them through how to play it. I could just kind of let them go. They ran wild and rode rides and racked up tickets.

 
 

Isn't this the sweetest? :) Speaking of tickets... the birthday girl got to take a turn in the renowned "Ticket Blaster," and she invited her sister to go in with her. It was so funny to watch. Selah loved it but Eden was terrified! Which is pretty much the story of their lives.


I made a giant strawberry cake for the party (Selah's favorite), and it was so sweet watching her sit front and center as everyone sang to her and gave her all the attention. I know birthday parties aren't the most important thing in the world, but it sure is fun to make my girls feel special.

 
 

Since the party was Selah's "big present," I just got her a Shopkins body wash set and blanket for her gift. She must have thanked me 100 times for that blanket. "You knew I would like that blanket, didn't ya Mama?" she kept saying.

So there we are. My baby is four. Christmas has passed. And a new year is upon us. I hope you had a wonderfully blessed holiday season, and I look forward to spending 2016 here with you on the blog. My family is always first, so I'm never able to post quite as often as I would like. Nevertheless, thank you for being faithful to read when I do. Happy New Year!

  1. This is so sweet! What a special day for a special little girl :)

    What's funny is I remember going to Chuck E. Cheese for my 8th or 9th birthday party and going in that same "Ticket Blaster". It's been around forever!!
