A fairytale birthday

Valentines Day what? Not at our house. February 14, 2009 was Princess party day. The day where 10 children 5 and under descended upon our home in a pink explosion! SO FUN.

As a special surprise for the birthday girl Mommy Princess made an appearance.

Much to Mommy Princess' utter chagrin Olivia opened each gift with a loud, "Is this ALL I get?" Did mommy princess ever wish there was an evil witch to cast a spell upon all party goers that resulted in instant deafness. Since no such witch could be found, Mommy declared we are going to get rich friends next year!

The great thing about a birthday party on Valentine's Day? Heart shaped pizza!!!

My biggest regret of the party? Not getting a photo of all the kids together. Everyone came dressed as a princess or a super hero. We had 4 princesses, one incredible hulk, one spider man, one batman and a police officer.

Have I ever mentioned my love for cake? These cakes are from my favorite bakery in Dayton... The Cake Shop. Beautiful and delicious.

In fact, I went a little overboard in the cake department. There was a gorgeous cake that was a Princess castle. But we would have had to put a second mortgage on the house to buy it, so this was my compromise. Isn't that Cinderella cake something (and the green tongue even somethin-er?!) Note the police officer over O's shoulder. No funny business allowed!

Olivia, um, you can have seconds. No need to lick the plate! (Is that all I get???)

She is her mother's daughter!
Thanks to all who came to the party...I don't care what anyone says, I thought you were all very generous :)
