My big girl is turning four in a few weeks.  FOUR!  Seriously, where has the time gone? She has become such a little lady.  My Aubrey has always had a mind of her own and been very independent. Lately she seems to be spreading those wings even farther.  I guess she likes keeping her mommy on her toes!

Picking a birthday theme for her this year was super easy and super difficult all at the same time.  I really like for my girl’s parties to represent their little person at that age.

My Aubrey, well…she’s a princess.  No doubt.  And she knows it! Lately, being a huge Doc McStuffins fan, she has insisted that she wants to be a doctor when she grows up.  Every mother’s dream, right?  Two days ago, she turns to me and says…

Aubrey: “Mommy, I don’t want to be a doctor anymore.”

Me: “Okay, why not?”

Aubrey: “Cuz, I want to be something else.”

Me: “What?”

Aubrey: “Belle…at Disneyland.”

Honestly….I can totally see it, too.  She’d be a killer Belle.

For her birthday this year, we knew it HAD to be a princess party.  She and I haggled back and forth for awhile about which princess, and for a few months we were all set to have a Pink and Purple Rapunzel Party.  Then in true Princess fashion, my little miss decided that she NEEDED all her princesses to be in her party.  That’s right…not want, but NEED!  How could I argue with that?  I can’t…so now her Rapunzel party will be an all out Royal Princess party extravaganza with ALL her princesses. I guess it’s a good thing I love them all too:)

For her birthday invitations, I wanted to get some sweet and unique princess photos done.  My super awesome, super sweet photographer and friend, Rachel, came to the rescue and took the perfect little pics…

Here are a couple of my favorites:Reading Princessbelle5Princesses do Laundry too:)

Wish me luck as I embark on a crazy princess party journey into Fairy Tale Land!!
