The 3rd big bash

I decided to do Sofie's birthday party tonight, because Katie & Jack came in a day earlier than expected. I figured I'd much rather do it now, that after an exhausting vacation!
We had so much fun. With 10 little kids, it was pretty much mayhem. But we did have them calm enough for a magical craft. Because it was an "Little Mermaid" party, Aunt Katie led them in decorating wands and crowns. Here are a couple of the princesses at work. Princesses Julia & Isabella.
Then we had a yummy dinner of Calzones and Caesar Salad - Delicious! Sofie opened her presents, lots of fun things that just happen to correspond so well with our trip this week!
A couple of satisfied partygoers: Princess Jolie and Prince James.
And Princess Sofia finally got to blow out the royal candles.
The enchanted evening ended with the fish pond. Each royal participant caught a treasure trove of surprises in their party bag.'Til next year Princess Sofia. Thanks cousins and aunts and uncles for coming. It was magical!
