We invited some of Emma's little friends over on Valentine's Day for a princess tea party.
This is my Grandma Sorbel's tea cup, and it sat at Emma's place setting. My Grandma passed away last Valentine's Day, so this was especially sweet to me.
The princesses picked out jewels when they arrived.
Dave wrapped a series of three boxes within each other, and the princesses (and Isaac) each took turns going around in a circle and unwrapping as much as they could while the music played...that didn't last too long. :)
It worked much better to just have a free-for-all--everyone unwrapped at once!
There were light-up wands for everyone inside the smallest box.
Happy Birthday, dear Emma!
Freeze dancing to "princess" music from "The Nutcracker" was a huge hit!
Emma loves opening presents! She squealed as she opened every gift!
Our dear friend, Shamron, came to the party to help with the games and take pictures. Someone snatched the camera away from her so she could be in a photo, too! :) Shamron gave Emma and me adorable matching heart shirts!
Last weekend, we had our family over for dinner to celebrate Emma's birthday.
Emma put her crown right on Pop's head.
We discovered that our little princess really doesn't love being the center of attention. She didn't even want to blow out her candles by herself. Of course, Isaac and Pop were ready to help. :)
We loved celebrating our birthday girl!
