A Good Day to be a Princess

The Saturday before last (August 23), was my birthday, but was also a birthday party for McKayla's best friend from Pre-K (and are now in the same Kindergarten class together).

It was a party fit for a Princess. In fact, the girls were called Princess all day and they absolutely loved it. :-)

First up was choosing from a large selection of dresses:

And one must always test how well your dress twirls. :-)

Then it was time for make-up, fingernail polish and to have your hair made up.

I really like mirror shots. :-)

Then it's time to show off your new dos.


McKayla and the birthday girl.
Once everyone had their faces and hair done, it was time for cupcakes and tea. Sadly, I didn't get pictures of that. :-( But you can see where the Princesses sat while they ate. :-)

After tea and "cake", it was time for all the Princesses to pose for pictures.

And then it was time to present the presents to the main Princess.

After presents where given and opened, it was time for some dancing!

It was a very fun, exciting day to be a Princess and McKayla is now talking about having HER party their next year....surprise, surprise. LOL

And I'll leave you with one last picture. Two Moms and their beautiful Princesses. :-D

Yes, we were begged and pleaded with to put on a dress so we could be
beautiful too. Who could resist? Not every day you get to dress
like a Princess and get away with it. :-D


  1. I want to dress like a princess!! Oh wait... I don't have a kid... do you think Jackal would object to a dress?? Hehehe just kidding. I love the pictures. You both make very pretty princesses. :D

    1. You can come to McKayla's party and have an excuse to dress like a princess. ;-)

The Great Dane Standard Through the Ages Part III ~1976~

The 1976 Official Illustrated Standard
Revised & Edited by The Great Dane Club of America, Inc. Written text AKC approved August 10, 1976 Illustrated by Donald E. Gauther - Great Dane Breeder & Judge Copyright, 1972

1. GENERAL CONFORMATION (a) GENERAL APPEARANCE. The Great Dane combines in its distinguished appearance dignity, strength and elegance with great size and a powerful, well-formed, smoothly muscled body. He is one of the giant breeds, but is unique in that his general conformation must be so well balanced that he never appears clumsy and is always a unit--the Apollo of dogs. He must be spirited and courageous--never timid. He is friendly and dependable. This physical and mental combination is the characteristic which gives the Great Dane the majesty possessed by no other breed. It is particularly true of this breed that there is an impression of great masculinity in dogs as compared to an impression of great femininity in bitches. The male should appear more massive t…

(Typed for easy reading below each picture which has made this post EXTREMELY long. Also, you *should* be able to click on the pictures to enlarge, but sadly still not enough to read the charts.)
