Well Violet turned three over two months ago and I am just now writing about it. What can I say life happens and we just finished celebrating her birthday (it took us awhile and we had to reschedule things again life happens and you adjust) She wanted to have an “Ariel party” which meant I had to make a little mermaid cake and she wanted a dress like Ariel.
Well the first thing that happened was celebrating with my family which is where she had her Ariel cake.
She was so happy with how her cake turned out. I used her ariel barbie for the cake, so naturally Ariel got a bath and her hair brushed and so did Violet. I also wrapped the barbie legs in cling wrap so that I would not have to clean too much cake off of her after we were done with the cake.
We celebrated Violet’s birthday at my parents a few weeks before her birthday (you know scheduling everyone together can be difficult) So this kid got to celebrate her birthday for almost three months. Emerald kept asking is it still Violet’s birthday?
On her actual birthday this poor kid was so sick so we stayed home and I tried to make the best of it because well all of us were sick. We stayed in pajamas all day and even tho we did not have much energy we still had a dance party to celebrate. We gave her a purple dress that she wore for dinner that night so that she could “be so fancy” for her birthday dinner and lollipops because that kiddo loves them so so so much.
We had also planned on taking her to Disneyland for Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique makeover but we had to reschedule this since my mom fell and broke her hand and knee and my parents were making the dress for her makeover. Also we planned on taking her to Disneyland that weekend without my parents just to celebrate her birthday but had to reschedule since we were all so sick.
We finally made it to disneyland for her birthday a few weeks after her birthday but still did not get to do the princess makeover. We did everything Violet wanted to do that day and we had a blast plus we went on a day that the park was not too full and the lines were short which was so wonderful. We got everything done on her list by 10am even seeing Minnie and Mickey and the rest of the time felt like bonus time since we did not have to wait in lines for anything.
Well my mom was finally feeling up for Disneyland 2 months after Violets birthday plus I had to find a day that worked for everyone and get her makeover scheduled. This was the day Violet had been looking forward to. My parents showed up at our house with the dress they had made . . . the only dress Violet wanted was the Ariel dress that she wears while visiting Prince Eric’s kingdom. She did not want the dress with fins since that way she would not be able to walk (lol) My parents even made a big blue bow to wear like in the movie. (you can check out their costumes at https://www.etsy.com/shop/royalty4kids) Emerald of course dressed like Elsa Fever one of her favorites.
Violets appointment was at 1pm and we only waited about 15 minutes and one of the fairy godmothers came to do her makeover. Violet could not have been happier to have this done. She actually sat still the entire time and for Violet that is very big deal she is a little wiggle worm. Our entire family watched while she had her makeover you can see half of us in the mirror of this picture. Violet of course picked the red hair extensions so that she could look even more like ariel and she got her makeup and nails done as well. This was one of the best days of her life.
We have done the Bibbidi Bobbidi Makeover a couple time before with Emerald but this was the first time for Violet which made it so special for her she was finally old enough. Her fairy godmother was amazing too. She definitely made Violet feel so special.
After Violet was done with her makeover we went to visit the princesses and then took some family photos in front of the castle. I love that the girls are holding their dresses out like a princess. This was such a perfectly wonderful day for Violet it was everything she hoped it would be, but in true Violet fashion by the end of the night she wanted the hair taken out and she was done being a princess and wanted to go back to being Violet.This gorgeous little girl is feisty, stubborn and bossy but she can also be so sweet and caring and loves to cuddle. She has the funniest sayings and loves to say everything is disgusting. She keeps us on our toes and needs constant discipline (or she thinks she runs the house) but she adds such a fun dynamic to our family and I can’t imagine our life without this little firecracker. Watch out world! #ohviolet
