A Princess Party

Anna Lee's cousin, Brynlee, had the cutest birthday party I have ever been to last weekend. (I can't believe she is already turning 5!) The party was at a little tea room, and the little girls got to dress up like princesses and have a real tea party (china and all). I was a little worried how Anna Lee would do...but she "princessed" it up right along with all of the 5 and 6 year olds. At first she was a little hesitant, but she eventually figured it all out and joined right in. Here are a few of the pictures we caught of the girls. It was so fun to watch all of them!

To begin, the girls all got to go to a room filled with pink princess dresses and pick out one to wear. Anna Lee was very specific about the dress she wanted. She picked an off-the-shoulder dress that was pink with lace and pearls. After they changed clothes, the girls got a "make-over" of sorts. They all waited in line to get their make-up done and their fingernails painted. We could not believe it, but Anna Lee patiently waited right along with all of the other girls until it was her turn. She sat as still as a rock while the lady in charge painted her fingernails, and then followed all of her directions (closing her eyes, opening her mouth, etc.) while the lady put on her eyeshadow and lipstick. It was too funny!

All dolled up

Brynlee was crowned "princess of the party." She was loving it!

She then crowned each of the girls "princess," and they each got a crown. Anna Lee was the only one who didn't want to wear her crown. Perhaps it was hurting her head...all of the other girls had full heads of hair to soften the combs. (Hopefully she will someday too!)

Just checking out what all of the other girls were doing.
She was working very hard to do what they were all doing...

That included drinking with her pinky held out.

All of the girls had a princess parade at the end, and then had a photo shoot as a group. Anna Lee looked so little with all of them...but acted so big. What a fun, fun day!
