Once upon a time, in the faraway kingdom of San Diego, there lived a delightful little girl who was about to turn three. Now this little girl liked the Disney princesses very much. So much in fact, that whenever she could, she would play with princess dolls, read princess books, and wear princess underpants, among other princessy pursuits. So in celebration of the little girl's third birthday, her parents decided to throw her a big princess party. This was in part to make the little girl happy, but also in part to help get princesses out of her system once and for all.
In preparation for the big day, the little girl sent out . . . . . . invitations to a good number of her closest, most darling little friends. Unbeknownst to the little girl, her parents also sent an invitation to a surprise royal guest. Then it was time to order the decorations, including . . . . . . a princess banner or two, a princess centerpiece,
princess blowouts, and lots of spangly princess danglers.
Next, it was time to fill the . . . . . . goody bags with some . . . . . . lip gloss necklaces, big, fake, jewel rings, and
oodles of stickers. There were boy-appropriate goodies too, but let's stick with the theme here, shall we.
Finally, the day of the party arrived. And what a day it was. Sunny, clear, and unseasonably warm. Perfect for an outside party. The guests began arriving at 12:00 sharp and were greeted with . . .. . . a welcoming sign created by the little girl's Grammie.
Shortly thereafter, . . .. . . the lovely Cinderella herself arrived and gave the birthday girl a big hug.
All of the little girl's friends were very surprised and excited to meet Cinderella.
After assisting the little princesses with their glittery transformations, Cinderella and her Fairy Godmother taught all of the royal guests some amazing dance moves to get them ready for the ball.First, there was the Chicken Dance.Followed by the Macarena, the Running Man,
the Roger Rabbit.
and finally, everyone's favorite, the Hokey Pokey.
By this time, everyone was very hungry. So it was time to partake of the . . .
. . . royal feast!
Using princess plates, andprincess napkins, of course.
But the activities were far from over. After the royal feast, it was time to play with . . .. . . a parachute,
blow some bubbles,
and march in a princess parade.There were some fine princess waves, indeed. The grand finale was a private reading from Cinderella's autobiography, entitled simply, Cinderella. All such fun!
But the highlight of the day was the arrival of the little girl's Uncle Neal (her Grampie's brother) who flew all the way to Southern California from the very faraway kingdom of Tennessee just to meet the little girl and her brother for the first time and to join in the festivities. The lowlight, of course, was that the little girl's mommy did not bake the cake.
But because her grandparents, great-grandparents, Uncle Neal, friends, and friends' parents were in attendance (and because she felt the love from distant friends and relatives),the little birthday girl was beside herself with joy!
Yes, all in all, the little girl had a most wonderful time at her princess birthday party,and was most appreciative.
And they all lived happily ever after.
