More Maleficent Birthday Party Pictures

 An Ariel dress from "The Little Mermaid."

 My nephew had a BLAST!!  He is on the move and he was ready to party!
 Something or someone caught his eye...

 He fell in love...
 ...With Baby Alive.  There were kissing noises and smacking sounds.  It was sooooo funny!
 The Maleficent birthday cake.  The inside was green and the outside purple - Maleficent's colors.

 The little figurine on top was a gift she asked for also.
 Time for the cake!!

 Priceless look on her face!
 Making a wish!

 I love that she ate her piece of cake with the little Maleficent figurine right beside her.
