Hannah's 4th Birthday Party!

Hannah had a princess/knight themed party this year. She'd been looking forward to this day for many months! She invited all her friends from preschool last year to attend. We played some fun games, and below is a video of part of the game, Princess, Knight, DRAGON! (a form of duck, duck, goose!) Thanks to all the friends and family who came on Saturday and made her feel like a true princess!

Her favorite part - opening the presents!

I almost didn't make her cake, because it seemed pretty intimidating. She insisted on a barbie princess cake, even when I tried to convince her cup cakes were better! I went ahead and made the cake, and it turned out to be really easy. The hard part was cooking the rounded cake - it took nearly 2 hours in the oven!! Putting the cake together with barbie inside was easy - that took 10 minutes! Hannah helped decorate the barbie princess with the hearts and I did the little pink frosting dots and tadah!! A cake fit for a princess!
