Welcome to my house. The party started at noon.
At every party I host, I always have a schedule. My niece (she's 16), who was here helping with the princess party, snickered at my schedule. But alas, people, schedules rock.
12-12:30PM When the princesses arrived, they could color, bead, or make flowers (or all three)
At 12:30, we ate pizza.
Then, we played games. (1:00PM)
We played pin the princess in the castle.
And then freeze dance.
At 1:30, we had cake!
I made the cake, can you tell?
I was going to buy a princess castle cake, but she insisted I make a "homemade" cake. And, really, can't get much more homemade than this:
I hope she made a good wish!
At 1:30PM, we opened presents.
I am not going to bore you with pictures of that. (although she did get some totally tripindicular gifts!)
BUT! If you'd like to see a few outfits a friend made for her American Doll, go here and here.
She also made shoes, which I told her I'd photograph and here they are:
Um, awesome, right?
And, last but not least, the party gifts!
I made everyone a tutu. 8 girls rsvp'd. I made 9 - one for everyone, including my daughter. Guess what!!!!! Someone showed up without rsvping. Yep. Biggest pet peeve, ever. THIS IS A PUBLIC SERVICE ANNOUNCEMENT: RSVP = RESERVE YOUR SPOT, PLEASE!!!!! So, I had to give my daughter's tutu to the unannounced guest. Which also means I didn't get any awesome photos of the tutu in action.
2:00PM, guests leave.
Happy Birthday, my sweet, sweet girly girl.
The next day, Sunday, we went to the Lion King at the Orpheum. Woweyzowey!!! I had tears in my eyes, it was so good.
Here is Nala:
Okay, back to knitting. I have 3 things I am working on. :D
