This is the picture that we used for her birthday invitation. Princess was the basic theme for the party. The crown fits a little too well...hmmm....
Nathaniel helped set the table with plates, forks, napkins and even helped bring the drinks to the table.
It was a "brunch" and Janice presented a real feast! We enjoyed a Cheddar and Bacon Quiche and a (turkey) Ham and Swiss Quiche. Janice also served her signature dish, a layered French Toast Casserole with a caramelized praline topping. On the side we had yogurt and fresh cut pineapple and strawberries. To top everything off Sylvie made hot cappuccinos, what a treat! Certainly an entree fit for a Princess!!!
Joelle left the opening of her presents to the boys. She was content with simply receiving the unwrapped gifts and playing with them. Seems fitting for a princess. :)
Janice made two amazing cakes one for everyone and one just for Joelle. It tasted even better than it looks!
The boys helped us add the candles to the cakes and even blew them out for Joelle.
Ben and Nathaniel pulled up a chair and wanted to make sure Joelle's every need was being met. Ben even went so far as to blow out her birthday candle and feed her some cake.
Ben fed himself some cake too.
This was an attempt at a cake coated kiss which Joelle narrowly avoided.
Cake is so good!
A true princess has her "cake eating outfit" and her "after cake eating outfit". This is a wonderful dress as the number 1 applique actually comes off and can be replaced by a star or a heart.
We had many birthday wishes come over the phone and Joelle loved everyone of them.
At the end of a busy day it is time for a nap. What a wonderful day. Thank you everyone that played a part in our celebration.
