Little mice.last year's party, though probably just because J&L are even more into it now)
Back to these two.
Then I decided to paint mouse noses on them with my eyeliner- what's wrong with me??? I draw the line at pageants though folks, we just have fun playing silly dress ups at home.
The girls have fun with it too, otherwise it wouldn't work and you'd only see bawling pictures. I'm so glad they still indulge me though, I just can't get enough of them.
But- they were pretty cute and if you bought 35 mouse ears at disneyland it'd cost about $550, it cost me about $25 and hopefully some of the party guests can use them when they take a trip to disneyland. (or when they occasionally feel like wearing them in the comfort of their own home). Not all the men took theirs home...weird.
I began gathering everything from around our house that was red, black or yellow. I liked the idea of a sort of carnival theme with minnie mouse so we had little carnival games- the nose one I already mentioned, shooting contests, pin the nose on the minnie, and a coloring contest.
I put Brad in charge of the shooting contests and they were a lot of fun.
Opening Presents was a hit.
Our special present to the girls was this princess castle- I've been SO excited about it, all of the princesses introduce themselves, say a couple phrases, and sing a song from their movie! It's adorable. I hope they play with it a lot because I'm kind of in love with it. We're all smitten with it. If you have a little girl and like disney movies it's a must have!
The little centers of attention, loving every minute of it.
They were even gracious enough to say thank you to a couple of people.
Blowing out candles like it's nobody's business.
The cutest party girls that ever were. That's what it's all about. They didn't want their ears during most of the party and since it was their birthday after all, I didn't push it. :)
It was such a fun day.
I almost forgot to take a picture of our family, but just before the last guest left we snapped a couple.
And the after party party. (just kidding, the girls crashed and the room wasn't nearly that clean) This was the after photo shoot party. :)
Happy Second birthday June and Lyla! Best two years I've had. Ever.
