Fairy Tale Party

It was Mikayla's birthday, I can't believe how fast the years have gone by. Mikayla is such a joy to have she is so loving, giving are caring. She shares my love of creating and enjoys dancing and music. I am enjoying see her grow up into a beautiful girl both inside and out and am so proud of her.

Her birthday is extra special for me as we nearly lost her as a baby. I had a few complications while I was pregnant and she ended up being induced early. If she had not been born on that day she probable would have died, my placenta was breaking up. After we had her we were told there was a chance that she could have developmental problems as they were not sure how much oxygen she had been getting. After lots of prayers she was born healthy and happy she surprised the doctors by being very advanced as a baby and she is now an intelligent healthy 6 year old. (I just got her first report card and am very proud). We gave her the name Shanae as a middle name as it means God is gracious. He heard our prayers.

This week and we threw her a fairytale birthday party.

See the big balloon it was suppose to be the table center piece but when I opened the bag it was sooooo big. So I hung it up here. Don't you just love old houses they have great places to hang things.

This is what I made just before the party to replace the table setting balloon:) Mikayla got a bag of feathers with some books for her birthday so I used them and tied 3 balloons to the bowl.

I covered the table with fairy dust (sprinkles).

These are the party bags Mikayla and I made. We put a sticker on top of the boxes, princess for the girls and toy story and cars for the boys.

A girl in our Church does face painting so I hired her to do face painting.

Mikayla was a mermaid, the back of her dress has a tail and when she lies down she can put her feet in the tail.
Shantelle as a princess
and Aiden was a grown monster in Yoda outfit.

Everyone dressed up. We had such fun lots of games and fun.

My friends moved last week and I was able to grab this it is quite old. I can't wait to do it up. I am hoping our wedding picture will fit in it.

Hey Bek! I agree about the old houses being wonderful! Ours is almost 100 years old and we're gradually doing it up. We have 12 foot ceilings that I just love - until we have to change a light bulb! Tee! Hee! Hee! Looks like the party was heaps of fun - how come grown up parties are so rarely dress up when it is so much fun to do!! Ah, to be a kid again! Let me know when you're free to hook up for coffee! Bear Hugs! KRIS (Tag Along Teddies)
