Cinderella, Cinderella

Alex and I went to a mommy-daughter luncheon today to celebrate her friend Julia's 3rd birthday. Julia is all about Cinderella so, of course, the theme was Cinderella. Above are the adorable invitations that Julia's mom, Karen, made for the party. She is super talented. I wish I would have taken a picture of the cake as well. It was amazing! (She also made the cake for my sister's baby shower, if you remember that picture.) The little girls dressed up in their little princess dresses and "tap tap" shoes (plastic heels), as Alex calls them. The decorated mirrors with rhinestones (such a cute and easy activity), ate lunch, opened presents, and had cake and ice cream. One of our friends even dressed up as Cinderella for the girls. They thought that was so cool. It was a very nice party and I had a great time doing something special with little Alex.

I can't forget to mention the good mail I got this week. Shawna sent me these fabulous slippers and a very sweet note. Thanks sooo much Shawna! I love them!!

Foot/ankle is bothering me today, but it is okay. Have to wear the blasted boot for another 2 weeks! It could be worse though. Thank goodness it is not the middle of summer. Then I don't think I would have such a good attitude about it. Thanks for asking! :)

My son broke his femur bone a few years ago. He was in a wheelchair for the whole summer. It was a big bummer!

Alex looks so angelic--We spent 2 hours today in a tornado warning and flooding rain. All the students in portables were moved to the school--we had 165 in the library. I thought I would need Cinderella's coach to get home.

Too cute! People are so creative! The cinderella castle backdrop with the Cinderella character-I don't know if I will ever be that good about birthdays for my kids! I hope so! Alex looks adorable! The little girl dressed up as Arial is hilarious-her little undies are showing!

Have a great week!:)
