We are two events into the great birthday triathlon. The girls' birthdays are less than three weeks apart, and this year we had a joint friend birthday party in between. Natasha celebrated her 4th birthday while her Nana and Pop were visiting, and then she also had a celebration at preschool. Yesterday we had the girls' big princess party, and Zoia's 3rd birthday is next week. I have made (and eaten) a lot of cake. I was down 28 pounds since Gabriel's birth as of last week, but I am afraid to get on the scale this week ...
|Princesses Cinderella and Tiana in the party room. |
Their dresses were their birthday gifts sewn by Mama.
|We made the dresses this summer as a craft, then used |
them as party decor.
|Rice Krispy Treat wands. Each kid got one and then we |
played a freeze dance game to Bibbidi Bobbidi Boo.
|Vanilla cake dyed with berry juices, and vanilla buttercream.|
|The fierce dragon who ravaged the castle and stole the treasure.|
|Somehow he looks more Angry Bird than dragon.|
|The kids still enjoyed hurling fireballs at his head to slay him |
and reclaim the treasure (gummi bears and bejeweled rings).
|Zoia was so excited to blow out the candles.|
|Preparing to decapitate a princess.|
|Immediately after cake, Z retired to the armchair with her|
favorite book and stayed there for the rest of the party.
