Alex's 6th Birthday: Diva Glam Birthday Jam

Alex's 6th birthday party was on Saturday, February 19th. It was all girl and over the top pink, glittery, make-up fun!  We invited a small handful of friends and decided to have the party at our home this year.  GASP!  I've avoided house parties for 6 years.  With Disney around the corner, we decided to save some cash and have a little party at the house.  DeDe came in town a bit early to help me prep for the day...and so that means that a "little house party" turned into a diva glam birthday jam :)  Thanks DeDe!

All 7 girls showed up in their favorite princess outfits.  We had a make-up station, nail polish station and a hair station. As a gift to Alex, our sitter (Miss Gabby) offered to do all of the girls hair.  She did a fantastic job.  The girls loved getting all dolled up and the mom's loved watching, taking pictures and helping!

After the girls got decked out, we had a brief but mostly unsuccessful attempt at Princess Karaoke.  Of course, Alex had to entertain the crowd with one song.  It was too funny.  I know I've mentioned this a thousand times - but she really does have a great voice!

After the karaoke mishap (I am kidding - the girls were shy and I ended up on the mic), the girls made a craft and then ate cupcakes and danced.  The mom's had a great time visiting and the girls were in heaven.  I love how well the decorations turned out too.  Carson and Daddy busted on the scene towards the end of the party which was too cute.

Honestly, it was just a fun, easy, laid back day.  Ahh, I love those kinds of days.  Our sweet YaYa had to work and was very missed (sniff, sniff).  Alex and YaYa got to share a special day just to themselves though, so it's all good.

The memories made will last least for this proud Momma!
