Birthday Girl

Addy was born on June 13, 2004 - a Sunday. We knew she would have plenty of "Friday the 13th" birthdays to come, and this was the first one. No worries, though...nothing scary about our sweetest little girl. Addy had an enchanting princess party to celebrate her 4th birthday. We started out with some Disney princess coloring pages while waiting for everyone to arrive. Mixed in some ball dancing here and there.
Then we moved to the "Castle Reading Corner" for the story of "Cinderella." Look at 'em all enthralled. I was actually quite amazed that they all stayed with me for the duration of the story.

Next was "Ariel's Hidden Treasure Game." Ariel had visited earlier and left a bunch of sand and sea items in our sand pit, so the kids had some fun digging them up.

We came in and decorated tiaras and crowns (for the one prince attending) with all kinds of fun stickers, glittery things, markers, etc.

What princess party is complete without a (leaning tower of...) castle cake? Don't know if you can tell from the picture, but this was quite a lopsided looking thing. Good thing it was covered with frosting and candy...

And, of course, we had to "slay the dragon" at the end!

We love our little princess to pieces! She's the sweetest thing around!
