I just can't believe the princess is FOUR!!! What a great birthday celebration we had- with presents throughout the day and a Posh Princess Pedicure party! The girls got to soak their feet with a massage and lotion then the moms topped them off with some pretty sparkley polish and fuzzy flip-flops to fit the theme.
