make a wish

Granny!! Get your own (root) beer!!
I told her that I was going to send this deceiving picture of her "fighting" my dad for the "beer" to her church for their bulletin. Lol. She yelled at me. As usual. :)

Isn't my daddy cute? I'm a mini-him (minus the beard...and a few other differences. Granny is kinda cute too.

Pin the tail! --She cheated--

Ok, it's like Sesame Street, "Which one of these doesn't belong?" :)
I think Makayla was trying to sneak out with them....I think eventually someone would have noticed the pale child.

Ok, this party was so fun (if I do say so myself). I had the best time planning and enjoyed spending time with every single person that was there!

Olivia had a "vintage" birthday party this year. I got the idea from looking at some other blogs and I took it and ran with it! I decided that I liked things from the 40's and 50's and googled away.

I found the popular candy: Saf-T-Pops, Big Hunks, Candy Cigarettes, Bazooka Gum (with the jokes on the wrapper), Nik-L-Nips,candy sticks.

We had glass bottled drinks: root beer, Coke, orange Crush, and grape Crush.

I also found some popular toys:  Chattering Teeth, metal Slinky,Cootie Bug Game, Tiddlywinks, finger traps, Pin the Tail on the Donkey (original from the 50's), wooden alphabet blocks, Little Golden Books, metal noise makers, metal spinning top

Did I mention how much fun I had?? Because I DID!
Olivia had a great time. She has been talking about her birthday for a while now (probably because I wouldn't hush about it). She was so excited to see Todd, Leslie,Khennedy, Ms Lisa (!!!), Nan and Pop, Memaw, Shirley & Coy, Debbie, her gym buddy Chloe, DD and Syd, Angela and Riley, Adeline. We have so many amazing friends and family members.

It was probably my favorite party yet. I loved the location (Just Leave it to Liz in downtown Benton). The place is so homey and old fashioned with a modern feel too. And Liz is the hostess with the mostess. I would definitley recomend checking it out if you get the chance.

And after everyone left....we let our hair down....
