Below is one of my favorite finds: HK ornaments that came in a 5-pack in the dollar section at Target!
In addition to knowing the theme super early, I also attribute all of my party success to the most wonderful, helpful husband in the world! He took the girls to church that morning
We had 2 crafts:
- I used my Cricut to cut-out HK santas and made them into ornaments for the girls to decorate.
- I found a "How to draw HK" tutorial and printed it up for the kids to try.
Sierra was a little shy at first... good thing for sweet friends to help take care of her!
The sandwiches turned out soooo cute... (Great job, Honey!)
For games, we played a little game I made-up using an old bubblegum rhyme I learned as a kid... it was similar to hot potato, but the kids got a prize for going out so they wouldn't be upset about it. :)
Of course, after the balloon game came the real balloon fun... kids just going wild!
We also played pin the bubble gum on the bubble gum machine.
"Let's get serious now," says Sierra!
The kids were so good while Natalie opened her presents. Natalie sat on the birthday chair while the kids took turns bringing her their presents. I was proud of all the kids at how well-behaved they were! And, Natalie was blessed with a lot of fun stuff!
Once again, we had "Tata" make the cake. There are no words... she is uh-mazing! Natalie even thought the top was a doll; nope! ALL cake! I feel truly blessed and humbled that my friend would do that for us. Natalie was beyond thrilled.
It was a fun day! Little Malachi slept through most of it, but woke up just in time to ask...
..."Is it over, already?"
