A Party for a Princess

Dahlia had her birthday party yesterday (even though her birthday is tomorrow....). When I asked her what kind of cake she wanted, she declared "Pink!" so we went with that. I threw in some Princesses & before we knew it, we had a very pink princess party! Just up her alley (sidenote: no matter how hard you try to 'shield' your kids from things like the DISNEY PRINCESSES...they will love them anyway. Hmph! Might as well go with the flow...)

We had a small party this year with Grandparents only. 5 of the 6 Grandparents were in attendance (Roger wasn't feeling well & it was bitterly cold).

We had pizza & veggies, cake & ice cream. She was wired from the moment she woke up & loved telling each guest who each & every princess was (on plates, napkins, etc).

And the presents! She had so much fun - a Princess tunnel & "desk" with pictures to color; a new suitcase loaded with a Hello Kitty robe, undies & other assorted goodies; a Dora trunk filled with dress up clothes and from us a new trike & a winter Hello Kitty nightgown (she insists on wearing the 'summer' Hello Kitty nightgown even in these frigid temperatures!).

Needless to say, she had a wonderful time. It is so much fun watching her as she gets older & how she enjoys things on a completely different level now. I think Christmas will really be a blast this year!

Happy Birthday Dahlia!

Pink is definitely the theme for 3 year olds - maddy wanted this as well! Your cupcakes are beautiful! You're the best.
(Maddy chose a cake at the grocery store the food coloring stains her face so badly I cannot remove it....scary)

Christmas will definitely be fun this year!
