“I like nonsense, it wakes up the brain cells. Fantasy is a necessary ingredient in living, It's a way of looking at life through the wrong end of a telescope. Which is what I do, And that enables you to laugh at life's realities.”
Dr. Seuss

Happy Birthday my big 5 year old!

My sweet little Livia turned five! She decided on another princess party, for the third year in a row...yes she is definatley a princess!!! This year we made it a Sleeping Beauty party! The cake was a blast to make and super easy (last year I made a castle...it took me three hours, ouch!)!!! I had fun shopping for new decorations this year too and found this cool castle background! Livia loved helping make the invitations! We took Burger King crowns and spray painted them pink and added glitter! I put all of the information on the inside of the crown! She loved handing them out to her friends! There is a picture of one on Tads head a few pictures down!

All of her adorable princess friends showed up looking beautiful! (Livia changed her mind last minute and wore her dance costume instead of her sleeping beauty costume, mind of her own!) They colored their placemats and made sparkling necklaces...had to have the bling!!! Trey even got in on the action...one day he is going to love these parties!!! I tried to talk him into being Prince Phillip, but he just wouldn't go for it!

Next we went downstairs for games! I made a spinning wheel and attached it to a popsicle stick. I was the evil witch and chased the girls around. If they pricked their fingers, they had to fall to the ground and pretend to be asleep. Then Prince Phillip (Tad) came around and gave them kisses (sprinkled Hershey Kisses) to wake them up! Then we played Sleep Dance. I played music and when I paused it they had to freeze sleep where they stood!

Then it was pinata time!!! And of course cake and ice cream! We had such a fun day! Thanks to the Grandma's and Cousin Lily for coming up! Livia asked if she could do the same thing for her "real" birthday party (on Sunday the 5th). I think one princess party a weekend is plenty...she would do this everyday if she could!!! Happy Birthday Livia...we love you our little Princess!
