Enchanted Dress-Up Tea Party

We had Avery and Abby's combined birthday party this past Saturday. We have always had a combined party for them since their birthdays are close together. They share many of the same friends, and so it just makes sense. This year we did it at Simply Puzzled, a darling gift shop and party room in Sherman. They had several dress-up clothes to choose from as well as boas, necklaces, and crowns. Everybody got to get their make-up done, too. The children answered a questionnaire that asked things like: What do you want to be when you grow up? What is your favorite color? Who is your favorite movie character? What is your favorite Disney movie? Then they had a fashion show on a cute stage. As they stood (or pranced around) on stage, a lady read all their information for the audience. They had tea (juice) and cookies in beautiful tea cups and saucers followed by yummy cake. After the sugar high, we let them have their own dance party on the stage.

It is hard to believe our girls are 5 and 3. Time flies! What a blessing from God these two cutie pies have been in our lives.

All fru -frued up!

Sisters Paislee and Preslee, our friends since birth.

Our other dear friends, Sadie and Sybil.

Cousin Mylen's favorite time of the party - tea and cookies.
(Not long after the party had begun, Mylen asked Aaron when it would be time to leave. Ha! He wasn't to sure about all the girlie stuff going on.)

Maybe some day I can make a cake like this.

5 candles on one side for Avery and 3 candles on the other side for Abby.

Abby spitting, I mean blowing out her candles.

"Of course, I am going to try to stick this whole rose of icing in my mouth. What is wrong with that?"

Avery trying to be polite, waiting for the others to get their cake.

Time to open presents on stage.

More pictures of the glamorous girls .
