{Addy's 6th Birthday: A Royal Ball}

Because of the craziness of the last few weeks, I opted out of planning a party and just paid someone else to do it! I found this adorable little party palace in downtown Puyallup called "A Simple Wish" and Addy invited 7 of her bestest girl friends to attend a "Royal Ball".  It was all things princess and girly and a great way to celebrate turning 6!!!

The afternoon started off making princess crowns.
 And getting their nails painted.
 Then Addy got an up-'do with glitter and all. And everyone picked out their princess dress, gloves, wands, jewelry, scarves, and headbands...a dress-up heaven!

8 Beautiful Princesses!

Then some games while they each posed for pictures.
Story time..
 And then a quick lesson on princess dancing. Each girl got introduced and presented to the crowd (all 3 of us). And had a great time dancing!

 A special Daddy/Daughter dance which Addy has been looking forward to for weeks.  So sweet.

Then a cute little tea party.  Man they had the cutest little dishes and tea sister and I were so envious!

 A big cupcake for a little girl!

Such a fun afternoon, and all I had to do was take pictures and enjoy it with her!  It really was just the perfect party for little girls.  Over the top girly-ness is the best! And they all had a ball!
Happy Birthday to our little Addy!! We are so glad you add some girly flare and personality to our family! We love you!

Happy Birthday Addison! This reminds me, Addy use to always tell me when I call her my princess, that she is not a princess, she is Addy!

And that Daddy daughter dance was so cute! I am so jealous! Can't wait to see all of you guys over christmas!

What a fun party! I love the idea of hiring some one else to throw the party, It looked like such a cute place.

Hiring out. Awesome idea. Seriously, just showing up sounds like heaven after some of our birthday disasters - and we haven't even had that many birthday parties yet in our house! Looks so cute!

This is the cutest thing I have ever seen. Shell, those freaking photos are awesome. I need to move to Seattle, get a new camera, drag my lap top over to your house and you can teach me how to do these cool things!

Miss you, friend!

Why I {Blog}

My little blog is a family journal. I include things on here I want to remember years and years from now. So when I post a zillion is because I want to have it for my posterity. So please forgive the often posted-picture overload.

Currently I am trying to focus on my photography skills...reading, reading, reading, and taking pictures when I can. Then edit, read, read, read some more. I finally feel like I have a basic understanding of exposure...hooray! I updated my blog template so I can display larger photos because...aren't pictures better than anything I have to say anyway?

More about me here.
