Luau Time!

Yesterday was Layla's Luau party. She was SO excited all morning and kept asking how much longer. Finally, it was time. :)


Daddy built a limbo, complete with bamboo that had been growing in our yard when we moved in.



Of course, we had to have leis...


The kitchen table:


Here is how I did the chocolate flowers I made:



And our Hula Girl cake! I think she turned out okay. I was a little lazy though, and borrowed a bikini top from Barbie & used Prima flowers (paper!) for those flowers around her waist! I just taped some flowers I found at the party store around my cake plate.


Nonnie made cupcakes & we added some paper umbrellas.



Check out this outfit!!



We dont have a pool and decided not to rent a bounce house, so I tried to come up with ideas from things we had. I found this sidewalk chalk paint recipe and figured they could use this giant easel she got last year.



Dirty boy...



Time for some limbo!


Which later turned into the boys raising the bar and trying to see who could jump over it. Blake thought it would be better just to plow through it, lol. No pictures though... I was recording it.


Time for cake!



Make a wish sweetie!



Got to have presents! (I scored that Didj for $9.97!)



And since Morgan didnt really have anything to tropical looking to wear for the occasion, I made her a little headband to wear. Sorry it's a little blurry!



Layla's actual birthday is today. It's to hard to believe it's been 5 years. Time sure does fly. I love you baby, I mean, BIG GIRL! HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!!

Hapde Burfday!

Thanks for the leapster tip btw. I did find a coupon (for $10 off), but it was only on the leapster 2. Walmart was clearancing the original ones, so I just bought that instead.
