Ali was invited to a Fairy Princess Birthday party on Saturday. The honored Princess was Abby, who was turning four. Ali was thrilled at the prospect of a party full of princesses, so we prepared the present in princess fashion and set off for Princess Paradise:
We were immediately rushed upstairs to the Princess Preparation Palace before we got attacked by the Pirates. The birthday girl and Head Honcho Princess herself shut and locked the door and then took over and immediately stripped Ali down and replaced her peasant clothes with rightful (though not exactly perfectly fitting) attire for a princess:
Speaking of Abby, her hair was magically done just as a birthday Princesses’ hair should be:
I’ve GOT to get my Mom to give me French-Braiding lessons. Although I might do better to find a teacher who doesn’t have to use all ten of their toes, both sides of their mouth and their chin create said look.
There were many princesses creating a room full of giggling and squealing girls. Mia made sure to acquire a proper steed for a princess to ride on,
And AJ was a Ballerina Princess.
Yes, it was a room full of princesses of every kind.
Poor David. He gets Brave Daddy of the Year Award.
And then, what really goes better with Chocolate-Covered-Princesses than to play in the sand for a bit?
After everyone was properly dipped and battered, it was time to head to the Piñata. The excited children were called forth and lined up,
And then we all turned and watched with horror in as several huge branches from a tree randomly started cracking, breaking, and falling onto the cars in slow motion:
After all, what’s a party without vehicular damage?
The children all waited with impatience and the women looked on with concern.
Unfortunately, it was quickly learned that Princesses have a tendency to swing like girls:
Nothing was going to be breaking any time soon.
(It is a Law of the Universe that Piñatas always last longer than adults would prefer and much shorter than kids would choose.)
(I bet you thought we were just imagining the Pirates after us earlier, didn’t you?)
After the Pirates and Princesses gathered their future sugar comas,
We decided that they most definitely needed cake to maximize their blood to sugar ratio.
And so, after Chocolate Wands, Piñata Candy and Cupcakes, our brood of Princesses sat, covered from head to Princess Dress in Chocolate, sucking on their candy, completely zoned out to the world around them:
And THAT is the true sign of Princess Party Perfection.
