Of course we had tasty treats... Liz brought cream puffs with raspberry jam... YUM!!!and what happens to MY pretty princess when she hosts a pah-ty at her castle and doesn't take a good rest....she needs "a bink, a bear" and some Baby Einstein to chill out :)
There was fruit, quiche, scones....
pretty princess party dresses
Lots of play, sharing, learning and making new friends
Did I mention tiaras?
Please note the Royal Highness's on their "throne" which doubles as my window sill.
And in true Liz and Country Mouse fashion... OUR version of a princess party would NOT be complete without a little balance.... so Liz brought the book "Does the Princess wear hiking boots?" :) OF COURSE SHE DOES!
ah yes... and there were cupcakes....
and there was one small pretty princess who only likes the ICING off the cupcakes :) it just totally cracked me up that NONE of the cake was touched and it just looked like J.T. forgot to ice one of them.
Story time with J.T.
and checking to see if the "glass slippers" fit...
Ah... the guests :) Glory came to live vicariously through those of us in the "thick" of it right now and to offer some perspective to we young moms that we have to soak up EVERY second because before we know it... our pretty princesses are going to be seniors in high school getting ready to leave for college just like hers...
My hostess in crime and her neighbor-friends :)
Gorgeous Lil' who brought all her friends personalized tiaras and butterfly wands :) (that her DADDY picked out for her to bring. SO FUN!)
I couldn't decide between the two. I loved them both so I put them both up :) Seriously.... how was it that this girl wasn't supposed to LIVE just a year ago?
God is good to have spared her life so that she could bring her youngest pretty princess to the party :) Poor H.O. looks surprised but I WARNED her I was snapping the pic :)
The little prince who completes these girls was getting his handsome rest in his "carriage" in my driveway :)
Yes I DID wake up early to watch the royal wedding LIVE, yes I DID love her dress and yes I DID get all geeked up in the hype and teach my daughter when the pretty girl in the white dress came on TV that she was indeed "a pretty princess" :) Once in a lifetime.... once in a lifetime.
