The Last Birthday Post ( I think)

Today we had Cadence's actual Birthday party for this year. She's a very girly-girl at this stage in her life so we went with that to give her a super girly party. It was a tea party for girls only where we all got to dress up and be princesses. The girls had a great time. The weather was beautiful - overall a great day for a princess party.

I still laugh about the fact that I have somehow raised this very girly girl. I really don't know how it happened but I'm learning to love dress up, make up, the perfect hair bow and shoes to an outfit, etc. Probably mostly because this little girl has completely stolen our hearts and anything that she loves we love, just because it brings her so much joy and regardless of what it is.

The decorations. I attempted a tea cup icing was a little runny :(

The dress-up box we picked our accessories from and the tea table
All the girls picking out the perfect accessory for their outfit :)

We had lipstick, eye shadow, and fingernail polish to add the perfect touch!

The girls table having tea or lemonade and snacks

Kay Kay got Cadence a new Belle dress and then her actual party dress was covered up and she HAD to be Belle the rest of the time!

Sooo Sweet! Of course cadence is a girlie girl! It's the beauty on the inside of you that pours out of her! Looks like the girls had a blast! Hey, great job on both cakes, the tea cup and the crown.

Just wondering...with all the dressup stuff cadence often do you find the boys running around in heels and a scarf or tutu:) Ha!
