all the girls got fairy princess face paint and "henna" (don't you love that anything can become "princess fairy______" with the right intonation? For example we had "princess fairy tattoos, princess fairy cupcakes, princess fairy juice..." we were serious about our theme y'all!

after the story the princesses had to help me search for the missing shoes...(J hid around our house) They did a great job helping the queen recover the shoes and then traded the completed pairs for their goodie bags!

After it was all over I asked Annikah what her favorite part was and she said without hesitation that she loved searching for the shoes with everyone and me acting like a "silly queen." How funny that out of all cakes, candy, gifts, face paint, etc that her favorite part was me acting like a frazzled queen who had lost 12 shoes. pretty sweet though.
Thanks everyone who came and everyone who sent Bday wishes & goodies!

The African Fairy Princess Party (that was pink) was a blast.

Looks like all well that ends well. Evy was so cute in her skirt. Can't believe she's crawling and standing up. The crowns turned out well. Glad the rings and necklaces worked too . Anni looked happy but hot. Did she still have fever?

I've been anxiously awaiting the party post - great reading to start my day! I love that you made an Evy-sized skirt for her, too. DARLING! I'm all about party themes - great job with that. And the hidden shoes was such a good idea after the story!! Sounds like a huge success!! Happy, happy birthday, sweet Annikah!!

hi Roxanne! I got your email on my blog and figured I would just reply to you here. The header on my blog is a picture (jpg) i made and then uploaded. I usually do one each season or so with newish pics... I did it in picasa, but I think any photo program would let you do it. I made a collage, arranged the photos I wanted in the cropped it to be a horizontal longer file, and then uploaded that one to the blog.

hope this helps!
