Clara's Birthday Party

On Saturday we finally had Clara's official birthday party. She wanted a pink butterfly princess party. She was very excited for it. I did the best that I could! We waited so that her friend Hailee could be there. You know how these princesses can be about having their princess friends from neighboring kingdoms attend their galas. Or whatever.
The Fairy Godmother
My dear friend, Erin, agreed to be the fairy godmother. She found a pink sparkly dress at D.I., wrote a story incorporating the names of all of the princesses, and led the princess parade. It was wonderful.
Princess Hailee and Princess Clara arrive!
Clara changed her outfit three times during the party. This is nothing unusual. She usually changes 10 times a day. We started off with the girls creating princess pictures on princess plates. The kind where you do the black rubbing and then color it in. Then we blew out the candles and had cake and ice cream. Then came the story and princess parade, and finally the opening of the presents. It was not a long party, but we packed it in!

Looks like a perfect pink princess party. I see an American Girl doll trip in Clara's future...

You look fabulous!

I am so sorry we didn't make it. I meant to text, then call and ... well, Friday-Sunday got away from me. Woodstock has had a bad cold/cough that i've been valiantly trying to prevent from becoming anything worse (or infecting anyone else). She's nearly better now (hoorah), but was CRABBY Friday/Saturday. I figured a crabby/germy toddler was more than you needed. :)

The party looks like it was so much fun!
