A Great Day to be a Princess

Okay, is it just me or is anyone feeling the Christmas Crunch already? I have not posted in ages, and it's not for lack of stuff to say. I am just swamped lately; there is not enough time in the day! However, I did take time to be a princess yesterday. Or more accurately, hang out with the sweetest princesses I know.

As many of you know, I have the cutest nieces ever invented. They came to town yesterday for a very special tea party. The tea party was at the palace (my house), of course. The princesses arrived in their travel apparel and were promptly bestowed with the appropriate tiaras, scarves, and other assorted bling. Oh, and don't forget the ever-important flashing microphone. Not sure what that has to do with being a princess, but it sure made them happy!

After bestowing these cuties with the appropriate couture, we commenced with tea. Or more appropriately, Kool-Aid, pizza and cookies. With a princess tea set, of course.

Little Maddie was still warming up to the older girls. Eventually she couldn't get enough of them, though.

Following tea, our top-notch hair stylist prepared each princess for a night on the town. She comes highly recommended, I might add.

At this point the temporary palace was rapidly sinking into mass chaos. Of epic proportions.

The princesses were assembled and photos were taken.

Eventually we managed to herd the beautiful princesses into their awaiting chariots and whisked them off to a night of royalty. We emerged at the arena formerly known as the Delta Center, and located our seats...at which point the little princesses were then introduced to the Disney Princesses on Ice. I wish I could have captured the look on each girl's face as the show started...it was magical. Even little Maddie could not take her eyes off the beautiful show, and remained transfixed the entire time. It was absolutely priceless; I had the time of my life. I cannot wait for the next princess adventure!!
