On Friday, it was time to get ready for Brooklyn's big princess party. I know we're crazy, but we invited four little girls to the party and sleepover. We wanted Brooklyn's day to be memorable, and memorable it definitely was!

Her twin cousins, Giselle and Bella, and best friends, Aubrey and Mary Hudson, arrived at 5:00 p.m., ready for the tea party dinner to begin!
After dinner, the girls decorated their princess crowns with jewels.
They all got dressed and accessorized for their fashion/dance show.
(They wanted me to be the announcer. It was hilarious to watch.)
...and then Brooklyn got embarrassed so we moved on to something else. Presents!
They all fell asleep by 10 p.m. and woke up around 6:30 a.m. We had Krispy Kreme donuts for breakfast and got our craft on by making bead bracelets and tattoos.
Then, I surprised the girls. They got dressed and ready to go, while Scot and I packed the van and loaded all the booster seats, drinks and sack lunches. And, we girls drove downtown to see the Cinderella puppet show at the library at 10:30.
(We're quite the crew, eh?)
The girls loved it!
We ate our brown bag lunches in the library courtyard and, one by one (or two by one), I dropped everyone off. The girls all said they didn't want the sleepover to end, so I'd say it was a big success!
Such a fun and memorable way to celebrate a little girl's first five years of life.
