"And it's Also My Birthday"

( Quote from Tangled, which you probably wouldn't know unless you've seen it a bajillion times like I have.)

Happy 5th birthday to this little girl!!!

We had a "Tangled" birthday party for Hannah last Saturday. She had about 15 little friends here. I tried to save money by making most of the decorations, so don't mind the homemade looking stuff. I think Hannah really liked it, and I suppose that's all that matters. I wish I could say that I came up with all these ideas, but I didn't. I found a lot of them on the internet.

Here was the cake. It's supposed to be Rapunzel's tower, but Hannah made sure I knew that it didn't look exactly like the tower in the movie. Hey, it was easy, and it somewhat represents a tower (despite the fact that it was a bit crooked). Good enough, I'd say.

Here are the goody bags for the kids.

The kids really liked drinking out of those fancy cups on the table.

I got this Pascal template from Disney's website to make Pascal blowers.

I also found these flags here on the internet, printed them out, and glued them to that yarn.

I was going to do a "Pin the Something..." on this Rapunzel but decided at the last minute not to, so it just became a decoration.

Onto the party....

The kids started off by coloring a Rapunzel and Flynn Rider picture.
Then we went outside and hit a Flynn Rider pinata with a frying pan. I think the kids liked doing this the best.

Then we played tug of war. It only lasted like a minute, though.
The birthday girl hitting the pinata.

Then we went inside and opened the presents (Hannah's favorite part). And we sang happy birthday and had cake and ice cream.

And here is Hannah on her real birthday (Monday) with a yummy cheesecake. Ok, yummy to me but maybe not so yummy to the kiddos. Why don't kids love cheesecake like I do?

I'd say she had a pretty good weekend. And to top it off, my mom and step-dad came into town on her real birthday. What can be better than having her grandparents here on her birthday (maybe having ALL of her grandparents here)? I can't believe my little girl is 5. Can time please stop? Seems like just yesterday I was kissing her little chubby cheeks for the first time.
