Princess, times 8

We survived the Princess Party!!!!! The bummer of it all….the camera was broken, so no photos!!

There were 8 princesses in my house, a Batman, a Power Ranger, and to non-costumed boy, in addition to three babies. For three hours. It turned out so well.

The girls were of course all very excited to be able to wear their princess costumes. Grace got the Cinderella Bride costume and the light-up glass slippers for the occasion. It was my joy to have a girly-girl party just for her. She’s shared her birthday party with Ryley since the beginning. This was her first party of her own. We had champagne glasses full of sparkling cider, pink and purple and blue decorations everywhere, sparkly confetti on the table, and a “Kiss the Prince” game complete with lipstick for the girls to play. The topper was the princess cake with all the Disney Princesses on it, and balloons EVERYWHERE!!!! The game was really funny. The girls LOVED getting lipstick put on them, but they are starting to realize what boys are, so getting them to kiss the paper prince was another story! I really wish the camera had been working. It was one of those priceless moments!

All the gift-givers went along with the princess theme. We now have enough princess stuff to last a long while: princess costumes and accessories (yep, a boa in the bunch!), princess chair, princess camera, tiaras, earrings, princess monopoly, princess books……..I’m still cleaning feathers and confetti off of my kitchen floor!

Gracie was so happy, and loved her party. She was definitely NOT SHY at this party! But boy am I glad the birthday parties are over for awhile…I’M DONE! My body finally gave in and I spent all day in my room yesterday, sicker than I’ve been in a long time. A little better today, but not quite all there yet. Now I have to start thinking about next year! UGH!

  9. Thanks, ladies!! It was a fun time. It is awesome for me to have a girly girl to do all this stuff with/for. I didn’t get all this when I was a kid, so I’m living vicariously through my daughter!!! Is that bad? Nope? GREAT! Let the girly girl life rock on!
