Elsa Tea Party – Part 2

…if you missed Part One it is linked HERE.

Finally it was time for the stars of the show to come out – eeek!! So excited! The song “For the First Time in Forever” started playing, and Anna came out first in her green coronation gown.

The princesses were lip synching to the soundtrack, and did an amazing job. They were so animated. The girls couldn’t keep their eyes off.

Then it was time for Elsa…the Queen everyone was waiting to see. Of course, she came out singing her hit song, “Let it Go.” All the little girls were singing along!

BIG SURPRISE…when she started the chorus, she lifted her arms up, and it started SNOWING!!! It was priceless.

They kept singing various songs and were greeting each table full of amazed little princesses.

Next was another surprise (and possible my favorite part). Olaf came out! The soundtrack played “Do You Want to Build a Snowman?” and Elsa made it snow again.

Jules kept telling me all about it!

Next it was time for the actual tea. The princesses were so helpful in taking care of all the little ladies. They even took some on potty breaks! I mean seriously, what little girl doesn’t want to go pee with Ariel!?!?

The girls were served tea (disguised as something – couldn’t tell) and a sugar cookie. The little ones were given sippy cups.

Next they were given a cupcake with white icing. The princesses came around handing them “Olaf parts” so they could make their cupcake into the lovable snowman. At this point, the parents could come next to the tables, so Nana got come!

Jules’ cupcake had no chance. She was not patient enough to make poor Olaf.

The princesses still had a surprise in store! In order to get the tables cleaned up, all the little girls were allowed to go in the middle of the room (by Elsa, Anna, & Olaf) and sing their favorites…while it snowed. It was absolutely precious.

Someone picked Jules up to get a little closer…poor baby was getting lost in there!

When the girls got back to their tables, their Easter baskets were waiting in their seats. Each princess came around with Easter treats to fill their baskets.

Last but not least, everyone had a chance to take a picture with the entire princess staff…and Olaf. definitely a photo-op you could not pass up!

Huge thank you to La Tea Da for putting together such an amazing experience for little girls. Hopefully they can do this again next year!

Elsa Tea Party – Part 1

As mentioned in my Easter Morning post, the girls received tickets to Queen Elsa’s Easter Tea Party. A local company, La Tea Da, provides a venue were girls can have tea parties with princesses. This year, they created an Easter special with Queen Elsa, Princess Anna, Olaf, & all the Disney princesses.

I was expecting it to be nice, but I was not expecting the amazing things to come…

First, the girls needed to get dressed in princess attire…
We went straight to the dress up box and picked out dresses they already owned. Kennedy became Cinderella (thanks Addison), and Jules became Sophia the First (thanks Paige).

The place was decorated beautifully as usual. La Tea Da does a fabulous job of making little girls feel like they are in a true fairytale.

Before walking into the venue, Minnie Mouse came outside to greet all the girls waiting. Jules immediately ran up to Minnie Mouse and held her arms up! Minnie Mouse picked up Jules for a big hug. This was Jules’ favorite part of the entire day – she kept asking for Minnie Mouse until we went to bed that night. I told Seth she wasn’t too young for Disney!

After we checked in, we took pictures on La Tea Da’s infamous Cinderella’s Carriage.

All the princesses were so nice and stayed true to their characters.

The next two rooms were full of princesses – every Disney princess you could think of was there! They were handing out Easter baskets and helping the girls decorate them with stickers.

Jules was probably the youngest one there, but she surely knew what was going on. Thanks to her big sis, she knows all those princesses by name. Their little faces were pricesless…wish I could bottle up moments like this!

Of course this was only the beginning! The real magic was about to happen, as we had to walk two doors down to “Arendelle.”

Arendelle was set up beautifully. There was a huge glittering ice castle, fabric hanging from the ceiling, & icicle chandeliers. It was gorgeous. Round tables were set up for each little girl to sit.

The only drawback to this entire experience was that parents had to watch from the side. There was a roped off area for parents to stand and take pictures. I was worried since Jules has major anxiety in new places (when I’m not with her).

For once, Jules’ anxiety worked in my favor. She was crying for momma (remember she was the youngest there), so they let me sit at the table with her! SCORE! So I was able to get good pictures up close, and my mom had the zoom lens in the parent section – we were all set for Elsa!

At their round tables were plastic cups and REAL porcelain plates. Those had to be picked up quickly from my two. We don’t “do” breakable really well.

The creator of this event really thought of everything. They brought out a special princess booster seat for little ones who couldn’t see over the table.

The girls were so excited – it was adorable.

All was set for the stars of the show to come out! (see part 2)

Easter Eve & Easter Day

Good Friday is always spent at my brother’s house. The weather was perfect, and the kids had a blast. They rode riding toys, jumped on the trampoline, & dyed eggs.

They they found a field of clovers and dove right in!

Holy Saturday is always spent with my mom’s side of the family at my Mom & Dad’s house.

Even though they see each other often, these cousins sure do have fun always – we were missing Jaden & Hailey this year!

My Julesy Wulsey…full of chocolate ;)

Easter Sunday was spent at my in-law’s house. The girls ate chocolate bunnies for lunch…I literally had to take Jules’ away – she would have eaten that entire thing!

Luke (cousin) and Kennedy walking down the street – how sweet! These two will be in the same class until they graduate..can’t wait to show them these pictures when they are older.

More best buddies….Jules & Paige. They were in the hospital together, and will (soon) be living across the street from each other!

Pappy then hooked his tractor to a trailor, and everyone went for a tractor ride!

We had a busy and fun weekend – the girls were exhausted!
I am so thankful to spend the holiday with great friends & family…and of course this guy :)

Easter Morning 2014

I tend to go overboard on a lot of things for my girls, so this Easter I tried to fill their baskets with really inexpensive items (or items that were actually useful…like books). Their baskets were filled from the dollar section at Target, then they each received a new bathing suit. They also got an Olaf plush and a Frozen book to share.

This is Jules’ morning hair I have to deal with everyday…

Kennedy was super excited about some new detangler spray for her hair :)

She was also excited about her new socks! Harley was looking for candy…but no luck (I have three buckets full from family)

These light up wands from Target were a hit!

Also, some new aviator sunglasses – just like mom!

Easter Bunny FAIL…these light up fans from Target were so fun until Kennedy’s hair got stuck :( We had to cut it out!

The “big” surprise ended up being an Elsa Tea Party that I managed to get tickets to a couple of weeks ago. The tea party was supposed to be the Saturday before Easter; however, it sold out within minutes. I settled for the Monday afternoon party…it worked in my favor…because thats what the Easter Bunny brought :) I typed up a letter from The Easter Bunny with the tickets attached. Jules really wasn’t listening when I read the letter, but Kennedy was ecstatic.

Happy Easter everyone!
I have Elsa Tea Party pictures coming, but I think I will have to do 3 separate blog posts about it…so many pictures!


Aunt Connie’s annual Easter party for the kids was another success. They had a blast and LOVED the Easter Bunny!

First activity was dying eggs. The pink/red wasn’t working for some reason, but the kiddos made beautiful eggs.


Next up was coloring a personalized placemat which was then laminated. Egg dye + Markers + White shirts…..


Aunt Connie had so many goodies – Easter Bunny glasses, blow up Easter bunnies, & candy!



Then the star of the show came…the Easter Bunny! Kennedy & Jules loved him…Jules kept hugging and loving on him.


Kennedy Marie – 3 1/2 yrs.

Jules Camryn – 1 1/2

Next it was time for the Easter egg hunt! The kids had a blast, and loved opening all their eggs to find what was hidden inside.

I threw Jules in the clovers…I have a similar picture of Kennedy when she was this age

Awesome day..the kids were exhausted when they got home…which means they went to bed early ;)
