Jillian's 22nd Birthday

Last night, we celebrated Jillian's birthday with a princess party!

Katie Anne picked the idea, and she went over to my parents' house early to help set up some special princess activities.  Our little family even dressed in pink to match the party theme! 
When we got there, not only did we all have princess crowns to wear, but the party started off with a royal craft!  We started with building princess castles out of sugar cubes, icing, and candies.  Everyone loved decorating their houses, and we had a fun time with our first family craft activity. 
After our houses were built, we ate a big Mexican feast. Jillian requested banana pudding for her birthday treat, but she did have a tiny cake for blowing out candles ... and Katie Anne was more than happy to eat the tiny cake for her! 
After dinner and desert, Jillian opened her presents - we gave her 3 shirts for student teaching, and my parents gave her two gift cards to buy more teaching clothes.  Then, we went into the living room to play the Wii, visit, and let all that delicious food settle.  Katie Anne got to watch her movie on my dad's tiny DVD player, and she was absolutely in heaven! 
It was such a fun princess party!

FUN!!! Katie Anne was so much help and I was shocked that she showed everyone how to start the princess house so well. She is a 12 year old trapped in a 2 year old body! She picked a great theme for Jillian. Pretty and pink!
