It’s Family Friday! A few weeks ago we celebrated my youngest daughter’s birthday. She requested a costume party for the third year in a row, but this year she added an outdoor movie! I love planning birthday parties for my girls…sometimes I think I’m more excited about the party than they are! This year mother nature decided to throw a little twist at me with heavy rain showers about an hour and a half before party time! I had planned for everything to be outside…food, a wonderful treat table, games and a movie of course! Now in Texas we need the rain so I was grateful, but I thought WHY TODAY?? Thankfully,the rain did stop before the party, but the backyard was muddy. I was stressed at first because a few things I had planned just didn’t work as well inside. Savanna was almost in tears because she really, really wanted to watch the movie outside. Luckily, my wonderful, always prepared husband had large tarps that we were able to lay on the ground then cover with blankets so the show could go on!! There was no more rain the rest of the evening and the temperature was perfect! Savanna and her friends had a great time! The popcorn and candy bar was the hit of the party!
I must mention Gloria with Geelicious Confections. She made Savanna’s wonderfully creative and super cute birthday cake!! I honestly didn’t want to cut it because it was so cute! Thank you SO MUCH Gloria!!
Oh and if you’re wondering Savanna is a ringmaster, my husband is the circus strong man, I am a gypsy fortune teller and Sydney (who wouldn’t let me take her photo all night…she’s 10 does that explain it) is a punk rocker clown…we had to come to a compromise on that one 😉
