Abby's Princess Tea Party

I've been wanting to have a Princess Tea Party for Abby and her little friends for awhile now. We finally did it today and it was SO MUCH FUN!!!
Here is Abby all dressed up, waiting for her guests to arrive. She absolutely loved dressing up as Cinderella. She would spin around and watch her pretty dress flare out. She tapped her shoes on the floor and jumped up and down with excitement as she waited for her friends to get here.

Abby dancing around in her princess dress. It was so cute to see her so excited and to know that she felt so beautiful.

Cinderella (Abby), Snow White (Riley), and the beautiful Renaissance princess (Isabelle).

Playing "Pin the Tail on the Donkey"

Sleeping Beauty (Kierra)

All the beautiful princesses. All of these girls are 2-years-old and within just a few months of each other. It's so fun to have friends so close by.

Abby liked this game so much, she played it again and again and again after she woke up from her nap this afternoon.

Their prizes for being so good at "Pin the Tail on the Donkey" were their own finger nail polishes. As you can see, they were pretty independent and wanted to do it themselves. Abby chose the blue Cinderella polish and not only painted her nails blue, but she also painted an entire finger blue.

Kierra had pretty yellow nails.

Isabelle had beautiful pink nails.

And Riley had gorgeous hot pink fingernails.

I had never painted Abby's nails before this. She loved it! I'm sure it was the start of something we will be doing quite frequently.

Awaiting their royal food. The mommies stayed and played too, so the princesses waited while they were served by their respected mommy.

The girls really worked up an appetite. We munched on heart shaped pb&j sandwiches, bananas, strawberries, string cheese, chocolate teddy grahams, and yummy chicken salad.

After eating, the little princesses played while the mommies enjoyed good conversation and watching.

The beautiful Renaissance princess, Isabelle.

Abby was so tired nearing the end of her big party. Do you recognize the tired stare? She crashed about an hour after the party ended. I think she would have gone to sleep earlier, but Micah came home from school, and she had a blast showing him all her fun party stuff.

Getting a group picture proved to be very difficult.

Apparently, Princesses also like to play Foosball. :)
All in all, I would say that the party was a smashing success. Abby had a blast and I think her friends did too. They all played together very well and no one got hurt. In my book, those are definitely the success indicators.
This party will definitely be followed up by many more. Next up is Micah's turn. His 5th birthday is in April and he wants a Chuck-E-Cheese party.

Carrie you are amazing! I want to be just like you when I am a mommy. You should write a book so that I can follow it! :)

That is such a fun idea! I bet the girls (and Mommies) just loved it!
