Last week we celebrated Princess’s sixth birthday, sixth!! We have done the whole ‘big party’ thing for the past few years, and I’ll even admit to be over-inspired by Pinterest for the past couple, but this year things were a bit different. It was a small event, with four friends invited from school and a small idea, movie night. We bought a new Barbie DVD to watch, along with some matching straws, plates, and boxes and we were away.
The girls came dressed in their pj’s, their bellies already full with dinner; they did of course leave their popcorn, chocolate milk, and cake stomachs’ empty for a night at the movies. There was a bit of movie watching, followed by lots of shrieking, laughing and running, as well as a ripper game of musical statues. After cake, they all settled back down on the couch for a bit of down time before their parents returned for pick up.
It really was a small and understated gathering, but you know what, Princess had the best time with her little friends, and gauging the shrieking and laughter, they seemed to have a good time too. Sometimes celebrations don’t need to be over the top, sometimes the fun gets lost in the detail of it all.
Happy birthday Princess!
