Princess of the Scratchy Throat

A local Girl Scout troop organized a Princess Ball and held it at an elementary school in the area. Claire was so excited about this event and was really looking forward to a night of being pampered and dancing with all the girls from her Daisy Troop.


Unfortunately, she woke up that morning not feeling well and had a sore throat. However, when I simply suggested that perhaps she should skip the ball that night and rest, she suddenly felt just fine.


It was a Princess Ball miracle!

No fever, so off we went.



First, she had to get glamorized . . .






Then, a pic with her favorite princess . . .




pose with her brand new hand-made (mostly by a sore-fingered mom) tiara . . .




smirk at a mom who wouldn't stop taking pictures . . .





smile with simple happiness . . .




ride in the carriage to meet the Prince . . .




line up with her Daisy pals and a freakishly large-headed Prince Charming . . .




flirt with said Prince . . .





and dance . . .




dance . . .


dance the night away.


Only to wake up the next morning with a fever and Strep Throat.


Awesome.

Claire, you make such a sweet princess. Glad the strep monster stayed at bay long enough for you to enjoy your fun night.

Naomi, you made a tiara?? Where were you with this skill during POF days??

The next time you need a tiara made out of plastic beads and gold-spangled pipe cleaners, I'm your girl. :-)
