Sara outdid herself once again with this party. She should have been an event planner - she has such wonderful ideas for theme partys, much to her childrens' delight when their birthdays roll around. I got so involved in the fun that I forgot to take many pictures. Here's what I have (along with a few from Sara).
|The food table - those are bottles of fruit|
flavored soda in case you're wondering.
|Fresh fruit in cups with Nutella in the bottom|
|Raw vegetables in individual cups with ranch|
dressing in the bottom
|Baby face cupcakes made by Christie|
|Pink and white striped plastic popcorn cups filled with crunchy|
sweet popcorn and nut mix, and assorted tarts, cookies and sweets.
|I love the little clothesline. Emily got to keep everything|
hanging on it, as well as the books and toys on
the fireplace under the clothesline.
|The three framed pictures are of Emily as a baby|
|Mickey, Charlie and Me|
|Emily in the seat of honor|
|Have you ever seen this game? Everyone was given an ice cube|
with a plastic baby frozen inside. Whosever 'water' broke first got
a prize. I froze my hand trying to get that ice melted to free my 'baby'.
|And of course there were gifts...lots and lots of gifts.|
Among them were a couple dozen books for her
to read to her baby. What a great gift for a child.
|And a special card hand crafted by Mickey|
|Four of my girls. We always miss Mary at these events but|
she lives too far away to come to all of them.
|Our hostess, Sara|
|One of the many books she received|
|DIL Cindy, DDs Amy, Sara and Jenny|
