Lallie's Birthday Party - Take 2

For those of you who asked, HERE is a tutorial on pom-pom making! 

 Now, for the rest of the party!  (Again, picture overload!)

At any given moment, there were probably 15 people/kids in the pool having a blast!  That's how we managed to have a party and keep everyone cool without being cooped up indoors!

Our neighbors came, Granny was able to fly down, Lallie's "stand-in grandparents" as we call them came over, Lallie's Godparents and kids were there, several of Lallie's school friends (who also happen to be Junior League mommies) were there.  We had 20 adults and 10 kids!  Wowser!

It was fun though.  We haven't had a gathering our our house since we moved here in July 2009, so it was high time for a bash at the SLPS household!

We had a slip-n-slide and bounce house in the yard.

Merritt, the youngest of the group, was just having the time of his life with all the older kids.  He was fascinated by the slip-n-slide.

Chow time.  Hot dogs for everyone!  Man, those kiddos were hungry!
For the adults, we served burgers and BBQ chicken, or plain depending on how the guests like it.  We also had Asian slaw, a salad, baked beans, deviled eggs and taco dip for an appetizer.  I completely forgot about watermelon!  Though I dislike it much, I do think it's a summer BBQ staple!  I also forgot the mac-n-cheese for the kids.  So here, you see them eating shredded cheese to disguise the baked beans.
Not sure if it worked.

Cupcake time!!!!  (I made the mistake of yelling this to all the kids.  No...don't do this, you will have lots of little fingers in the cupcake icing.  It was so cute though).

Ahhh present time.  All the kids joinedin to help Lallie open her presents.  She received TONS of Barbie stuff, a fun Barbie tent, clothes, PJ's and bathing suits!  And of course, from mommy, she received lots of LUSH bubble bath and bath bombs (which she has been told she has to share with mommy!)
Unfortunately, Grandma and Geezer couldn't make it down but they were here a few weeks ago.  So here's Grandma teaching Lallie how to paint (my mom is a very talented water color artist).  Geezer and Grandma got her a remote control car.  She was scared of it at first but now she zips it all over the house chasing and tormenting the dog.

And, last but not least, here she is enjoying her newest movie, The Princess and the Frog from her new Princess Tent House.  What a way to close out the birthday celebration.

Happy Tuesday Y'all!!

  4. I am so glad that I found your blog! I am loving everything about the "Little Miss Lilly P." Where did you get your kitchen table and chair set from? I have been wanting a set like that with a bench and chairs with a table. Did it come in black? You can email me at dbbrown04@gmail.com
