Callie's 5th Birthday Party

It was a "Sparkle Mermaid Party" by Callie's request this year, and it was a hit with the kiddos!

We had lots of fun foods like "Submarine Sandwiches" (Blimpie subs) , "Seaweed Salad" (pasta salad), a veggie tray with "Octopus legs (peppers), sea cucumber slices (cucumber slices), Seaweed sticks" (celery sticks), we had "Clam" cookies, "Shark Food" (fruit in a watermelon shaped like a shark mouth), and "Ocean Water" as punch (Sprite with blue food coloring). We also had "Shark Teeth" (swiss cheese cut into triangles), and "Fish and Chips" (Goldfish crackers and Lays potato chips).

We also had a pinata, "mermaid tails" for the girls and mermaid crowns too. We had steel drum music playing to make it seem more tropical. There were tiki torches and a bubble machine as well. I made some "jellyfish" that hung from the ceiling and those tissue puff poms. Thanks pinterest!

The biggest hit of the party though was the water slide/bouce house! The kids LOVED that thing. Callie wouldn't get in though, she just wanted to play with all her toys and did not want to get wet! Her guests really enjoyed it though. I wish I had one all summer long!

Callie's main gift from us was her own Go Kart! She is having a blast with it!! Parker's getting some turns too.

As my little lady turns 5, I thought I would share some of her favorite things: She still loves Taylor Swift, her favorite food is "chicken on a bone" and noodles from Panda Express. Her favorite color is purple and pink. Favorite animal is a giraffe and a panda. Her favorite thing to do is to play with her Teddy and have "Taylor Swift Salon" where she will do your hair and makeup beautifully. She likes to watch Lalaloopsy, TroTro, and Daniel Tiger's Neighborhood. She plays on the computer- "nail games". Callie likes to talk in the third person all the time and it's hilarious. This past year, she's lost teeth, no more training wheels, and likes to pick out her own clothes (about 4 outfit changes a day people!) She wears a size 6 slim pants, and a small shirt. She's tall and skinny, every woman's dream! Girlfriend loves her footie pajamas too, which she calls her "warmfoots" will be 90 degrees out and she has those things on. Oh, and sadly, her father has turned her into a Seahawks fan. We will be setting up a foundation to help other kids afflicted with this illness.

Callie is sensitive, but tough. She makes us laugh all the time with her warped sense of humor and crazy things she says. She will probably be a comedy writer someday. Or maybe just a crazy mom who tortures her children.... don't know where she is getting this from.

Happy Birthday my love!!
