Alexis discusses the details of the princess party and mother-daughter relationships.

This was one of my favorite episodes of all time because I now have a video record of my beautiful daughters' "Princesses LUV Puppies" party! That day was truly so special and so much fun! We were able to enjoy the whole family and share in so much joy with our friends and their wonderful kids who came to celebrate with us! It was such an unbelievable party, and I cannot think of one single thing I loved the most about the party. I know for a fact I could never have done that party on my own, Amanda at FantasyFloralDesigns.com made it a success!

My daughters begged for a princess-themed party (AGAIN, ugh!), but I made them promise me that next year -- no more princesses! HA! I know that won't happen.

What better way to start a princess's day than have the twins' hair and makeup done, since they always beg mommy for that when I'm in hair/makeup! Any other day I'm wiping it off of them, but this time I was adding it to the girls! It was the perfect opportunity, and that's why I made it a costume party!

Since last year we also had a smaller "princess" party in our home for the twins' third birthday, I knew I had to do something to spice it up a bit, so why not give back to the community and bring puppies available for adoption to the party? And guess what: FIVE puppies were adopted at the party, and THREE more in the weeks after! Now THAT makes for a successful party! Thank you CompassionforCanines.org, for bringing those scrumptious puppies!
