Emma Turns 6!!

A few weeks ago Emma turned 6 years old. Right now she really likes Hannah Montana and so we decided to do a Rock Star Party. I was pretty excited to do this party and I came up with a lot of fun ideas. First of all I found a cute card to copy for the invitations. I changed the color scheme of the original card and this is what I came up with. I love these quilted cards even if they are a lot of work.The party was held at Grandmom and Grandpa Lifferth's house. For dinner we had Pizza from Papa John's and Salad. Papa John's was having a special and large pizza's were just $10. After dinner we played a game of Freeze dance. I made CD's for each family with different songs that kids might like from Hannah Montana, The Jonas Brothers, Miley Cyrus, etc. The kids seemed to have fun with the Freeze dancing but I don't think that they really understood the concept. They were just dancing around. My sister Mindy designed the CD cover and I love how it turned out!After playing freeze dance we made our own backstage passes. I found a music foam kit at the store and we used that to make them. The kids had fun designing them. Then it was time for Emma to open her presents. She got a lot of fun stuff. Some of her favorite presents included a scooter, a scrapbook kit, a homemade hooded bath towel, and of course the clothes!!For the party favors I saw this cute bag on a blog so of course I had to copy it. I did change the paper and some other stuff. In the bag it had pop rocks, bubbles in a guitar container, fun dip, a guitar necklace. They also got the CD. I don't know if you can tell in the picture but the bag is sparkly. I made my own shimmer spray by mixing some rubbing alcohol and shimmer paint together in a little spray bottle and then just spritzed it on. I love the effect that it gives.

Emma's party was fun and it was a fun one to plan. I think that she really enjoyed it. And she got to use last years Halloween costume again!

A couple of months ago Reagan's Doggie went missing. Reagan's Doggie is a lot like Landon's neigh and is literally her best friend. She has conversations with him and snuggles with him. At first it didn't really seem to bother her. But more and more lately she has told me that she missed Doggie. When I would ask if she knew where he was she would just reply with "I don't know."

Last night I woke up in the middle of the night to feed Payson. When I woke up I knocked my glasses of the night stand. This morning when I woke up and I was looking for my glasses I lifted up my bed skirt to look under the bed and I saw Doggie. He was sitting on top of one of the storage containers under our bed. I don't know why I haven't seen him before. When I woke Reagan up I had Doggie behind my back and I told Reagan that I had a surprise for her. When I pulled out Doggie Reagan had a big smile on her face. She has not let go of Doggie all day today. It is fun seeing her having her conversations with Doggie again.I will post about Emma's birthday later. Her pictures are on another camera and I need to get them.
