Our Queen of Hearts is FIVE!

It's mad to think it, but our girl has just turned five!
 Lorelei wanted an Alice in Wonderland party... then a Tinkerbell party... a Tangled party... a Toy Story 3 party... we stuck with the first one! Lorelei wanted to invite all her friends, but decided this year on having her preschool class partake in the festivities.
 Lorelei traced and painted Tweedle-Dee and Tweedle-Dum. She's so artistic (Mommy helped only a little bit).
 That wily Cheshire Cat--he can't figure out which way to go...
 Mommy and Daddy thought their Queen of Hearts deserved a throne.
 And with the help of some cards, Mommy arranged some rose bushes for the queen's table.
 Who's been painting my roses red? WHO'S BEEN PAINTING MY ROSES RED??!
 Hanged men.
 The kids' beverages.
 White Rabbits hopping down their rabbit holes.
 Look at our Queen of Hearts, so tall for her age! She's so beautiful! Mommy made her royal robes.
 The relay game--Painting the Roses Red.
 On your marks, get set, GO!!!

 The kids enjoyed some time in Lorelei's Wonderland.
 Next, it was the Mad Caucus Race (a variation on Musical Chairs).
 As each person got called out, Cousin Lindsy painted their cheeks.
 Time to sing Happy Birthday!

  The Queen of Hearts, the Cheshire Cat, Gryffy, and the Mad Hatter.
  Our flamingo pinata really did lose its head. The Mad Hatter tore it to bits and the kids went wild for peppermint patties.

 Grammy's helping Lorelei open gifts.
 And before her friends leave, Lorelei entertains them on the royal playgrounds.
 Finally, a kiss for the White Rabbit, and it's back up the rabbit hole!
Happy Birthday, Lorelei Belle! Mommy and Daddy got really choked up (both in full-on tears) watching the slideshow of pictures from your baby years until now at your party. You are growing into such a lovely person and we just love you to pieces!
