Maycie turned five on Dec 4th. Five is an important birthday because it means when asked how old you are you can hold up an entire hand. Princesses are pretty important around these parts so it was appropriate that we had a princess party. Below is the castle cake that I enjoyed creating.
We invited lots of fun girls who all arrived at the party in there best princess attire. We at pizza, made gingerbread castles (I neglected to get pictures of those).
Here is the Happy Birthday cake time. When Maycie gets excited she shakes and her hands go up to her face as shown in the picture. What five year old wouldn't love a castle cake on their birthday.
Here the girls are working very intently on their princess crowns. Maycie received lots of fun gifts. And everyone went home with fun party favors that they had to find by playing hot and cold. All and all it was a fun day. I have to admit, though it was fun it was a lot of work, a bit more than I had anticipated. That likely won't keep me from doing it again next year however.
