Happy 4th Birthday, Georgia Ann

It just doesn't seem possible that my niece Georgia has turned 4. It has been so much fun watching her grow into the sweet and sassy little girl that she is, but oh how I wish time would slow down. We celebrated her birthday on Sunday, and I just couldn't get over how much she has grown over the past few years. I realize that's how things work, but it's still hard to wrap my head around.

The Holland House: Georgia Ann Turns 4

She has so much personality, and such a mind of her own. In fact, she went through several different birthday themes before deciding that she wanted a Halloween Costume Party. I made the cake for her Tinkerbell party last year, and I was excited to make a cake for her again this year. I'm not sure how I'll top it, but this is what I made (design by

The Holland House: Witch Cake

My sister has tried to coordinate their family Halloween costumes since having Georgia. This year it was all about Ariel and the Little Mermaid theme (driven by Georgia, of course). Holly was Ursula, her husband was King Triton, and little Blair was the flounder fish. They seriously could not have been any cuter!

The rest of my family was also pretty clever. My brother and sis-in-law went as Thing 1 and Thing 2. Hank and I ran a 10 mile race early Sunday morning, and went straight to the party afterwards. So we dressed up as the super original marathon runner and support crew.

My sister outdid herself as always with fun themed food, games and crafts for the kids. My mom also dressed as a witch and created a "feely table" that she used to do for us as kids. She had different containers filled with guts (spaghetti), hearts (peeled whole tomatoes), eyeballs (cipollini onions), fingernails (sunflower seeds) and a brain (a round sponge).

Overall it was a really fun party, and I think Georgia and her friends had a great time. Can't wait to see what's in store for this next year of her life.
