This Saturday was busy for the little girl.  She took a snooze on the way back from Ana's house,

Homeward bound with a sleepy little girl.

snacked on a festive cookie on a quick Target run when we got back in Nashville

Tis the season for festive cookies.

and trimmed her little tree once we settled home.

My Little Pony Party | Lexi's Fourth Birthday

I haven't done an official post over at my photography blog yet, but I wanted to go ahead and share photos from Lexi's party here.  :)

First of all, I couldn't have pulled off this party without the help of Emily over at Smarty Parties.  She was totally the brains of the whole operation! You should really check out her blog to see some of the other fantastic parties she has done.

Lexi wanted to have a My Little Pony party this year, and we decided to have a rainbow color palette with pony accents.  I really love how everything came together.
