Princess and the Boy

The day started out with a brilliant storm.

One by one the princesses arrived. We held Karaia's friend birthday on Dec. 1st.
We ended up having 11 girls. Crazy. Yes. Fun. Absolutely!

Of course I w
as wise enough to call in reinforcements. My mother-in-law Candace and my sister-in-law Dancia graciously helped out. I couldn't have done it without them. Thank you!

My other sister-in-law thought the party started an hour earlier and ended up vacuuming and cleaning my bathroom. If that isn't love I don't know what is. Thank you, Emily!

The party started out with the decorating of princess hats. Which really is a must have for all princess parties. Then we moved on to what I thought was going to be a very fun game involving Vaseline and cotton balls. I forgot however that the age of 5 is the age of the beginning of vanity and none of the little girls would willing apply Vaseline on the ends of their noses just for a games sake. So we swapped the Vaseline for spoons and they had a wonderful time.

Next the cake. I decided to make a castle cake this year. It was created out of 4 cakes. We still have about one whole cake left. The girls loved it though. Especially Karaia which is all that matters.
After cake came the presents. Karaia got some lovely gifts and has really enjoyed the new entertainment. As well as her mom.

Beckham had a hard time because it was a girl party and he was not invited. I tried to remind him that Karaia did not get invited to his either. THEN when all the presents were f
or her and none for him, it was just about a melt down. He kept telling Karaia she was supposed to share. such hard lessons when you are 3.

Karaia officially turns 5 Dec. 18th. I can't believe I have been a mother for 5 years and
in the same breath I can't believe it's ONLY been 5 years. I wouldn't trade it for the world, but I would accept a child free vacation should anyone be in the market to get rid of one.

Emily, wow that cake is amazing!!! I can't believe you made that! I bet your daughter loved it, and the picture of the snow. I have almost forgot what snow looks like, just kidding, it's just that it's still in the 80's down here in the Lone Star State.
