For Cadence's 7th birthday party, she had a princess party. She's 7 now & I know that she is getting older, & soon there won't be any more "princesses" for parties. So I have to enjoy it while I can. We decorated the house in pinks & purples, with princess plates & cups & a giant castle as a centerpiece for our table. And then we had that Belle cake that Cadence was SO excited for! On our door was a sign that read "Cadence's Castle! Princesses Welcome!" It was perfect!
Cadence has exactly 8 other girls in her class at school, so she decided that she wanted to invite all 8 of them to her party instead of half of the invites be for school friends & the other half for church friends. She really did not want anyone from school feeling left out. What a sweetheart! She is so caring of those around her. She is such a good girl.
Well, being the horrible winter that it's been this year, a lot of the kids in her class got sick & only 2 of them were able to come to her party. I was SO worried that she would be disappointed that more didn't come, but she acted as if it didn't bother her at all & we all had a blast!
Signe & Emily were great & we had lots of fun learning how to become true princesses. We made homemade castles, homemade crowns, beautiful heart charm bracelets, & purses. We learned princess etiquette & manners & we all had a fabulous time!!
The girls all loved singing happy birthday to Cadence. And then we all chowed down on Belle cake & strawberry ice cream. Then we finished by opening presents. Cadence got 3 new littlest pet shop pets from Signe & a big dress up set from Emily. She was thrilled! We all had a ton of fun.
And I had to throw this picture in there because Bladen LOVES Taya & always wants to be with her, but she can't stand it when he touches her. She screams & cries like it hurts, but he still loves to rest his hand on hers or on her lap despite her cries. I thought this was a sweet depiction of that mutual love between them. . . Don't you just love it?
