Princess Molly Turns 4!

Well, I haven't posted for 1.5+ years, but I have had many family members request pictures of Molly's party and birthday this past weekend, and I thought this might be the easiest way to share so many.

 When you ask her how old she will be/is…she holds up both 
hands with 4 - and everyone exclaims, "EIGHT?!"

This was the first  year she had a party with little friends!
~A Princess Molly party~ 
I tried to fill the party with things and activities that Molly loves…
pink, purple, princesses, wands, wings, crowns, sparkle, twirly dresses, 
crafts, stories, games, friends, and fun!
 The invitations
The wand and balloon signaling the party entrance.
 We had the party at our church.
 Aaron helped me make a castle (and the green wand that was outside)
 - traced on wood, cut, painted, and details are in silver (hard to see).
Cake, princess water, fruit
 Cupcake "cake"
 Wands, tiaras, and wings
 Craft station in the back
 The birthday princess!

 Princess Halston

 Princess crafts
 Craft Time!

~Halston and Molly's version of the first princess craft~
 These little spoon/cupcake liner princesses are so cute!
I love how they all turned out!
 Story Time!

 I wrote a fairytale about Princess Molly's 4th birthday.  My cousin's daughter, Sarah (age 11), drew darling illustrations so that we could have a personalized story time at Molly's party.

Game Time!
 Pin the jewel on the crown!

 Cupcake Time!

 Darling little princesses!
 And then…home to nap; supper with BaBa/MaMa, Uncle Gins (Nicholas), and Aunt Brooke; Build-A-Bear for a Hello Kitty from BaBa/MaMA; more cupcakes with the family at our house; fell into bed!  Busy Busy Fun Fun, and it wasn't even her real birthday yet!

And then…The birthday - 4/6/14
Mommy took muffins and a birthday banner to Sunday School
Look at her rainbow fingernails - she had matching toe nails, too!
Opening gifts at home!
Phew!  A fun, special weekend celebrating our little princess.
She brings such joy and sparkle to our lives.
