Princess Birthday Party

We recently celebrated Ava's third birthday by having a princess birthday party.

In attendance were several young princesses including Princess Abbey...

... and Princess Annissa.

And several older princesses including princesses Betsy, Lauren...

... and Madeline.

The festivities began with several games followed by opening presents (with Oliver supervising).

We then gathered in the kitchen for sandwiches and cookies.

There were tiara-shaped sugar cookies which the children frosted and decorated.

Seth was intent on getting the frosting on his cookie just right.

Next Ava blew out the candles on her Disney princess cake...

...and obliged her parents with a smile for the camera.

Before we knew it the party had come to an end so Ava handed out the party favors to her cousin Sophie and other guests.

Later that night Ava opened presents from her parents and little brother.

Her favorite gift seemed to be these Disney princess pajamas.

She wanted to try them on right away, which proved to be the perfect segue to bedtime.

Happy Birthday Ava! We love you!
