The Party - cont'd

We arrived at the party room early to take some pictures before everyone else arrived.
Proud Mommy with her little Princess.
Hugs from Daddy
Snuggle with Buppa
Just plain cute with Amma
Mommy working hard in the kitchen stopped for a pic with Amma
Soon the main attraction arrive...a real live Princess.  Yes, Sleeping Beauty, in person, arrived to spend some time with all the little girls at the party.   As you can see, she also brought along her special party totes full of surprises for the girls.
This Princess didn't pay any attention to our cameras, she focused in on the girls only, and let the other activities happening around them in the room, go on without a blink from her. 
Danica was enthralled with Sleeping Beauty.  Here she is getting a Happy Birthday hug from her favorite Princess.
The Princess included all the little girls in her talks, but she mainly spoke directly to Danica. She gave Dani all sorts of extra attention as it was her BD celebration.
Sleeping Beauty soon got into her bag of treats, and the girls waited in excited anticipation to see what she had hidden there.
No words needed here. 

The first thing to come out of the magic bag, was a book.  Before the story began, Sleeping Beauty asked each  little girl what their favorite book was.   Here she is asking Danica.  Danica thought for a moment and then said "Right now my favorite book is the dictionary.  I enjoy reading about the meaning of all sorts of different words."  I bet that is the first time Sleeping Beauty ever got that answer to this question at a party for 7 year olds.

All the other little girls had a chance to answer the question too.
Some little girls wandered over to the snack table from time to time...
But most of the time they sat paying close attention to the Princess.

After stories and other activities each little girl could choose a princess dress of their very own to wear for a while.
Then it was time for a break to get a snack and wander around for a bit.
Next came the princess make-up. 
The smile when Danica saw herself in the magic mirror tells it all.  She was over the moon pleased.
We left after this point in the party, and it went on for another hour or more.  Sorry we don't have any pictures of the music play, or Danica getting her special Princess tiara and certificate proclaiming her an official Princess.  The fun just never stopped for these little girls.  Mommy was a bit knackered when she got home though.
