Lauren's 12 Dancing Princesses birthday party was so much fun! All the little girls looked so beautiful in their princess costumes. They went on a scavenger hunt to find things like crowns, jewels, bags of gold, and a shield. They got their faces painted. They whacked a pinata that was shaped like a ballet slipper.
They loved the two Barbie cakes. They were the kind that have an actual Barbie in them and the cake is the dress. We gave Lauren a pink Minnie Mouse shirt and I got Danya a matching one so that the two of them can be twinkies at church sometimes. Lauren's mom read the book The Princess and the Kiss to the girls. It's a fairy tale that teaches the concept of purity. Her mom also hand made the goody bags. She is a seamstress and the purses were amazing; silk inside with lace on the outside and a drawstring.
Lauren's whole family is just awesome. I really hope we become friends with them. It was funny how much her dad reminded me of Daniel. Her youngest brother is about 13 months old, and he and Kevin played together throughout the party.
