Me: And I'm writing 'from Kate' on all of them so they'll know who it's from.
Kate: No, Mama, not Kate...Katelicious!
Me: I don't think I'll EVER be comfortable with adding -licious to the end of your name, sweet pea. Let's stick with Kate, shall we?
She had loads of fun at her party and used the skating rink for running sprint races just as much as she did skating. The party came complete with clowns, a magic show, face-painting, food, and cupcakes (which clearly falls under the category of food but sometimes I feel they deserve a special mention all their own).

After the magic show, the clowns hung around to paint the kids' faces.
I learned a very important lesson yesterday at the party: Never, ever try to cramp a clown's artist style. I told the kind (and what I thought was open to suggestions) clown that Kate wanted two simple yet sparkly hearts, one on each cheek. She looked at me and said, "Okay", but she must of been thinking, "Sure lady, whatever." Because then Kate walked away with this:
She wasn't a clown, she was an artist, and my daughter's face was her canvas. I actually ended up loving the finished product. Super cute!

Last night was the nursery department's Valentine party at church. They made heart-shaped pizzas!
