Mackenlee has been five for almost a month now, but we just had her party! It was suppose to be in our church's gym (you know since January is suppose to be COLD) but I checked the weather when I woke up this morning and was delighted to see "71 and sunny"! So we opted for the church playground, instead. All the kids had a blast and the outdoors went wonderfully with the colors of her party!
This party was fairly easy/inexpensive to put together. The big signs were made from an old packing crate that Brian brought home from work. The cookie jars were a lucky find at Dirt Cheap for a 1.00 a piece and the drink dispensers came from Dirt Cheap as well! (Have I ever mentioned how much I love some Dirt Cheap??). The cookie jars were filled with 6 different wonderful homemade cookies and the kids got to choose from white, chocolate and strawberry milk to go along with their cookies.
The cake was also made my me. I am actually pretty proud with how it came out! But enough with the typing! Enjoy the pictures!!
