Mariah's Princess Birthday Party

Since Mariah's birthday is the day after Independence day we usually have her party either late or early. This year most of her friends were gone all summer visiting family. We waited for all of them to get back and had her party the beginning of September. She is crazy about princesses right now. One day she asked me if she really was a real princess. I told her that she is a daughter of Heavenly Father and that He is the king, so she really is a real princess. She loved that. Anyway we had a lot of fun putting together her princess party.
We used our dryer box to try to make a pink castle for them to play in. They had a blast with it.
Mariah wanted a castle cake. I am so glad that I had a friend who knew what she was doing and helped me with it! Thank you Cami!

I don't have pictures of all of the games we played right now, hopefully I can gather some up. We played Pretty Pretty Princess/Handsome Prince. Mariah helped me make crowns, necklaces/medals, bracelets/capes, rings/shields, and wands/swords. I printed pictures and taped them to the floor and they danced around to princess music then when the music stopped they got whatever they landed on until they had everything. This was probably their favorite game.
I had drawn a picture of a frog prince/princess, the kids took turns "kissing" the frog by putting paper lips on the frog while blindfolded. The first girl who did it put the lips right on the frog's mouth. Good job Dana!
