Happy Birthday Danika!!!

What a big girl you've become! November 2nd was Danika's birthday. Her requests for her party were simple. . . dress up and make necklaces. Sounds simple, but since boys were coming, I had to get a little creative. So we had a Princess and SuperHero party. All the kids looked fabulous. Danika chose to be Belle and thanks to after Halloween sales, I was Snow White. Anytime to dress up is a fun time for me! After seeing Colton's birthday cake, Danika requested a "big take with wots of pincesses". I found a cake similar to this at a local bakery, but they wanted $125 for it! I thought for sure I could figure it out. I think it turned out pretty fabulous and a lot cheaper! Pink cake with pink frosting - what else could she want!
We did a few fun activites.
First when everyone was arriving, the princesses and superheroes colored big pictures of Ariel and the Incredibles. Then, we made necklaces! My great friend, Laurie, make shrinky-dink princesses and superman medalions and we added sparkly and foam beads. The kids had a great time with the help of talented mommies! If you look in some of the other pics you can see the finished products.
Freeze Dance is always a big hit. Thanks Carrie for putting together a cd with fun dance music.

Danika opened presents in her new princess throne. It makes music everytime she sits down so of course everyone tried it out!
Those are the highlights! We had a great time and Dani is already planning her next party!
