Livi wanted a princess party solely so she could borrow Amber's red dress and wear it. And there were to be no boys this year. We did a really low-key party as it was 2 days after school let out and I hadn't had time to recuperate yet. But I think it turned out cute. We played "magic wands" with some sticks and balloons. Then we had lunch and cake and opened presents. And then I had Livi tell the story of the Princess and the Pea which she'd learned at school and we played "Find the Pea under the Pillow." She loved it. Her only disappointment was not getting a rose like Alyssa.
