The pink princess party was last week but due to 2 of our computers being completely toasted in one week I have been unable to post pictures (as an aside technology breaking is particularly irritating and annoying when one lives in a place that it is not so easy to replace said busted item and one needs said item for work and communication with one’s family…sigh…). Back to the party…It was a fun and low key small-ish party which I am sure will vary greatly from the party we will throw for our neighbors and friends after Ramadan! Anni dressed up in her princess gown complete with crown and wand, we had sweets, ton of decor (thanks Bibi), presents, crown and royal bracelet making, a princess dancing parade, and we were joined by some friends here to celebrate Anni’s big day. Here is a taste of Princess Annikah’s Pink Party…..

pink cupcakes per Miss A’s request….Anni was involved in tasting for quality

” check out my pink cupcakes!”

    Sounds like the perfect party for a pink princess! How funny that all of the little mzungu (or is it wazungu??)princesses are blonde! I hope she likes her Cinderella Barbie and her Cinderella shirt! Now she can act out all of her fav stories with all those new little dolls from her Bibis.

    Just got a call from Grandpa, and his stress test came back “Great!” So he doesn't have to have anything else done. Thought you would want to know. He said to thank you for the prayers.

    Where is that pesky dragon, all of the swords to go with the crowns, and every great crown has a coat of armor as supporting cast! Anni already has two great hero's in you and Jason, so she doesn't need any thing else!
