Princess Brynderella

On Saturday night, we had Bryn's big princess birthday party. We had never had a birthday party for her before. When she turned 1, we were about to move to our new house. When she turned 2, I was hugely pregnant with Shay. So we figured that when she turned 3, it was high time for a party. We had over about 10 of her little friends. Here's one of my favorite shots of a group of them on the couch.... although, admittedly, it would have been far better if I had snapped the shot about 30 seconds sooner, when they were all sitting together adorably.

The theme of the party, of course, was princesses. What else would it be for Bryn, really? :) Yes, this is the point where all of those of you who knew me when I was pregnant with Bryn and said things about how my child would never wear pink, can all sit around and laugh.

We had such festive games as "pin the crown on the princess." The kids also colored pictures, made their own crowns with sticky foamies, and decorated their own cookies (with parental assistance). Bryn's "best friend" (this is what she calls him) Chris was the one and only brave boy at the party, and he was wearing one of the little girls' princess high heels by the end of the night. Overall, a very fun evening!

Chris has been putting his crown on and traipsing around the house telling me he's a princess ever since. I keep saying, Prince, Prince! He had a great time. It was a great party. You're a braver man than I.
