Skylar's 5th Birthday Party

A couple weeks ago I hosted a Princess' & Knights 5th Birthday Party for Skylar.  Last year we didn't do much on her birthday so I wanted to make this party something special for her.  We kept the party very small and invited just a handful of her friends from preschool and held it during the week.  I went with a simple gold, white and black color scheme.  I had tutu's and crowns for all the princess', knight armor for all the boys, and several goodies.

On a funny side note about Madden at the party.  Madden decided that Sissy's birthday party was going to be the day he didn't wear diapers anymore.  I didn't want to force him since it took weeks to convince him to even try a pull-up.  So we had 8, 5 year olds kids to entertain, 8 parents to socialize with, and had Madden's peeing all over the floor.  I was a bit stressed with it when it was all happening, but its pretty funny now that its all over with.

We set up a craft station in the garage.  The girls got wands to decorate and the boys had mini swords.  Jake also put together a castle out of several cardboard boxes we had been saving for weeks.  The kids painted, bedazzled, and played in the castle.  

I found a random face painter online and she turned out to be AMAZING.  The kids face paint turned out so cool and different.  When she went to leave the kids begged for more, so she added arm tats as well.

We actually got the kids to settled down for a bit and eat some lunch.  The kids loved sipping apple juice out of their fancy glasses and straws.

We were able to wrap up the whole party before the rainstorm hit, but not before the birthday girl took her brother for a ride in the rain.
