Abby's Birthday Party

I am finally getting around to posting some pics from Abby's birthday. I have decided that my kids will get friend party's when they are 5 & 8, and more are just too much. Anyway Abby decided that she wanted a princess themed party. It was a little hard because she also wanted to invite boys. So we decided to have a Princess, Prince, Knight Party. It turned out just okay...not my greatest work. But thanks to Melissa, and Jamie Joy, no young children were harmed during the making of this post.
"The Gang"
Back Row: Oakley, Ally, McKade, Corbin, Abby
Front: Brynlee, Timothy, Mykenna, Kylie, Hayley

The first thing we did was pin the lips on the frog. It was cute. Even if my free hand frog was a little ghetto.

The boys had fun sword fighting...

and smacking around the Black "Sleeping Beauty" Dragon Pinata.

Auntie Ri made Abby this beautiful Jasmine night gown and robe. She worked so hard on it, every detail, even down to the box.

Abby loves it, and played the role of "Princess" very well that day.

Another fun first happened on her birthday. Abby was out riding her bike with her training wheel still on, and they were not even touching the ground. So I decided to take them off. And off she went...didn't even skip a beat. She even got her bike again after we got home from her birthday dinner to make sure she still knew how to ride. I am glad she had such a great birthday. 5 is a really big deal. The morning of her birthday she woke up and was worried that her undies would still fit. After all she was "5" now.

I think your freehand frog rocked!! If I would've done it, it would've looked like a monkey!! I know if was a lot of time and stress, but I'm sure the kids loved it!!

Oh Kristi, I think that you're too hard on yourself. You did an amazing job and the kids loved it...admit it!

Your party was not ghetto!! It was a normal party for a 5 year old. It is how parties should be. Fun games, treats and a little something for the guests. Duck duck duck duck...goose!!!

p.s. Why didn't you choose a better pic of Abby's nightgown. Her princess robe drowns her!!
