but first, another "Quote by Naomi"
The Day before her birthday
Me: Naomi, tomorrow you get to blow out your birthday candles and make a wish!
What do you wish for?
Naomi: Mmm... I wish you a MERRY CHRISTMAS!
Me (laughing): Um... thanks but it's not Christmas ...what else do you wish for?
Naomi: Mmmmm....I wish for a baby brother!
I asked our cousin Tommy to help out with taking pictures on the day of - phew! - so I felt free to enjoy watching Naomi and Noelle play and hang out with our friends. Here are a few photos of our party prep and some snapshots of the details.
Party hats, a special request from the birthday girl...
I am officially in love with all things made of flags!
Sign made by Stella Lee, Craftmaster PhD. Stella helped me make all the crafts and set everything up - thank you soooo much!!
Naomi was over the moon about her party and didn't even nap before coming - the girl just couldn't sleep! (Party was held at My Gym, same place as JJ's party last year.)
Thirsty after all the playing!

Fairy costume for the birthday girl~ they let her pick it out and I'm not surprised that she came out wearing all pink!
A special big thank you to Tim for watching the girls while mommy ran errands, to Stella for burning the midnight oil with me to craft away, to Tommy and Julie for taking pictures for us and helping clean up, to Bass and Diana for picking up food and always helping out with our girls, and to my in-laws who gifted Naomi with this party.
And of course, thank you to all our friends and family who have made Naomi's four years so amazingly wonderful - we miss all our family in Seattle and wish they could've joined us but thankful for all our new friends and family down here in CA - we are blessed.
For those of you planning parties, all the party decorations were inspired by the talented creatives out in blog world...check these blogs out for some eye candy!
