Maggie's 5th Birthday Princess Party

Getting ready to help.
Such a big girl helping do her cupcakes. She frosted two, and then decided she'd rather add the pink glitter sprinkles.
Licking the frosting off the beater. It's more fun than helping get the cupcakes ready!
The Princess Cake. I used Maggie's Sleeping Beauty Doll for the doll part. It was made out of strawberry and lemon cakes. Yum! Also, between the cupcakes and this big cake, I ended up making 4 batches of buttercream frosting. And yes! We cut into and ate the princess cake at the party. Delicious!
So girly. I let the girls use my china for their lunch and dessert!
The princess's place setting. So girly!
Here we are! Maggie chose to be Snow White for her party. And it was so fun that everyone came in their dress-up clothes.

We started out the party with coloring princess pictures and decorating crowns with princess stickers.
After the girls were done coloring their princess pictures and decorating their crowns, we had a Princess Parade. Each girl got to take their turn coming down the stairs and join the procession marching around the dining room table. They took it very seriously and it was so darn cute!!!

Enjoying cheese pizza, grapes, carrots & dip for lunch! They all did so well - no spills or accidents and everyone loved their lunch.
Smiling while everyone sang "Happy Birthday".
Blowing out her candle.
Watching part of Beauty and the Beast. All the little girls loved it!
The party went off without a hitch!!! They all played nicely even thought they didn't all know each other (church friends, neighborhood friend, MDO friends).

And a big thanks to Gramma Amron for all her help getting things ready and keeping things flowing. I was so not motivated to do the party this year being so pregnant and just getting over a really bad cold, but it was the most painless party I've ever thrown for Maggie.

So very thankful for my little princess girl. She is such an amazing blessing in our life!

:( We missed seeing Maggie at her party this year. Savannah really enjoyed looking at these pictures. She asked me if we can go and see Maggie. Makes me sad that we are so far away now but we love you guys!
