{How about a Cuppa of Tea with a few Princesses}

Someone said to me recently, "Miss Cindy, your family sure does party a lot". LOL! So very true and we love every minute of it!

My granddaughter Kyleigh will be celebrating her 5th birthday May 16 so we decided to do her party a little early and a Grand Party it was! 

Non other than a Princess Tea Party for our Princess Ky. 


When my daughter told me that she wanted to do Ky a Princess Tea Party my heart took about 3 leaps.....Oh yes I do love me a sweet tea party!

Every little Princess immediately found their name tag and sat down to their very own crown, wand and prissy fan.


 

These little girls was princesses indeed. 
 

Each little girl was a different princess. Don't you just love the colors of their dresses? 

The older girls at the party served the young princesses and as you can see they even fanned them to keep them cool. (That's the life now isn't it?)



Princess food was enjoyed as they had Aurora's Forest fruit, Ariel's Waves, Sleeping Beauty Pillows, Princess Peanut Butter and Jelly Sandwiches, Princess Turkey Sandwiches, Princess Pink Punch with Princess Pink Popcorn,Cookies and Cupcakes.


These young Princesses was ready for Princess Pink Punch in their teacups.



They gracefully enjoyed their cuppa of tea punch.


This sweet girl loved her little prissy fan.


After a fine Princess Lunch it was time to do makeup and nails.


My oldest two grandgirls had the honor of putting on their makeup and painting their nails.

Oh my! These little Princesses eagerly waited their turn.









This sweet Princess LOVED her nails.
 

A Princess can't go wrong when she has freshly painted nails, a hunk of a ring on her finger and lipstick in hand...right?



This Princess needed just a little more lipstick.




And this little Princess loved what she saw!
 

The little Princesses loved seeing themselves in the mirror with their fine jewels, makeup and nails.


After the nails dried it was time to play pin the lips on the frog.
 



This frog has lips now! (and several, lol)


Now it was time for Cupcakes and singing Happy Birthday to Princess Kyleigh.


They gathered around Kyleigh and sang. I just love the smile on Ky's face. 
 

She was surely a Happy little Princess.





Time for presents. YIPPEE!
 



She even got a Princess doll that looked just like her!


The Princesses found our newest baby Princess and had to have their picture made with her.


But this little Princess slept through the party!
 

Each Princess had her own princess bag and needless to say it was filled with lots of goodies to take home.
They couldn't wait to get their bags filled. 
 

Each Princess also carried home a sweet little flower.


Just one more hug before leaving.


Not sure they want the party to end.
 


This Princess had so much fun that she just had to twirl!
 

And Princess Ky had a wonderful Princess Tea Party Birthday celebration.


 Just think! Our Lord Jesus knew each of these little princesses before conception and His Word tells us He has a plan for their lives. Jeremiah 29:11 says,
 "For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future". 
These little girls are indeed our future generation of women. It's my prayer that God will use them in a great and mighty way to show Himself to a lost world. 

Thanks so much for tagging along with me for my granddaughter's Princess Tea Birthday Celebration.

Hugs and blessings, Cindy

{Thrifting and Partying}




Done a little thrifting after getting a bunch of sugars off this sweet girl.....


I only went to a couple of places but did find a few things I liked.

Isn't she just lovely? 

  What was REALLY lovely was the price! I got this sweet thing for $1.99. 

Ooh...I grabbed this little cabbage teapot up faster than you could blink! I spotted it at a distance and darn near ran over two old women and one man to get to it! And....for $2.99 it became mine!


 Cute purse for $3. 


 Yes, I'm a sucker for baskets and any kind especially one this size and well made for $2.


And talk about partying...We just had a little family birthday party for my oldest grand that turned 12!



Every grand gets to pick what they want for their birthday luncheon and my girl wanted Nana's sausage and potato soup and turkey and ham subs! Now you can't go wrong with soup and sandwiches!

  




Subway has nothing on me!!!


 Birthday girl was happy! 
YEP...that would be my grandson in the background wanting to blow her candles out!!!! LOL!


And sweet new grandgirl could care less about a party right now! 
 

A surprise came in the mail for me and needless to say it made my day!

Isn't the card just beautiful. No doubt hand made. 
 

Love, love, love this cute little pocket card.



But nothing compared to a hand written note from my blogging sister in Christ, Debbie Kay.
 


Pop over and visit Debbie Kay when you get a chance. She is the sweetest soul and has a heart that encourages.

 And just so you will know. We carried this sweet girl for her 2 week check up and she had gained 1 lb. The doctors only hope that within 2 weeks that newborns are back to their birth weight. Well this sweet girl went over the top! Mommy is feeding her good!




Speaking of encouragement. Have you been encouraged lately by another person? Or, have you yourself encouraged someone?

It doesn't take much to encourage another. Sometimes it can simply be a hug or a pat on the back. Other times just a simple phone call will do or an email. But I can tell you that a sweet little card with a hand written note such as what my friend Debbie Kay sent to me speaks volumes. Number one she took her time to do it! TIME is something we all struggle to have but TIME is one of the greatest gifts that we can give to another. Even if it's only to take the time to write a note to another. 

I want to challenge you today to find someone that you can encourage this week. Whether it be a hug, baked goody, card, email or etc. If you've ever been encouraged by another then you know how it feels! 

Happy Day to you all.

Hugs and blessings, Cindy
