The birthday party. It began the night before when the Garcia girls agreed to bake the cup cakes. You see, when asked what kind of birthday cake she wanted Kennedy replied, "I want Rudolph the red-nosed reindeer, Frosty the snowman, Bambi, Dumbo and Mickey cake." Ummm, okay. So I asked my sister Rebecca (click here) what she would do and she told me to print out all the characters, put them on toothpicks and stick them in cup cakes... genius! Except, I didn't realize you could control the size so I've got some 8" Cinderella's and 6" Dumbo's. The kids loved them! (If you click on the picture below it blows up so you can see our plate of goodies better.)
MacKenzie helped be the taste tester.
We had a bunch of little kids, mostly boys, running around. They had a blast. The festivities began inside with the doll house. I couldn't believe how much fun all the little boys had playing with dolls:)
And then we moved outside to the playhouse and dirt. There was absolutely nothing more entertaining at the party than the dirt aside from...
... that big pile of dirt!
Outside of my kids there were about 15 little boys and 4 little girls. Good thing we're not at the slumber party age:) Anyway it was fun! And for next time I think we've learned that presents... didn't even care about the presents until everyone left. Maybe we'll just have a present-less party in the dirt next time:)
