8 years old has arrived for our tip toeing middle girl. Dog loving has also arrived and so you guessed it, a dog cake was the appropriate animal cake of choice this year. We tried to do a dog themed party with some fun entertainment.
In our west corner - using what we have and who we are, to bless each other,
We also added a little bit of a talent show from the parents... it was a hit! Enjoy the pics.
Here he is one and all: Jock Illuzion... the magician.
The kids LOVED this and David was so hysterical. This was the hit of the party. I think we have found some hidden talent.
If you would like to see a YouTube video of Jock Illuzion in action view here:
I was the comedy act but the act before me put me in for a pretty expectant crowd.
Their favourite joke: What do you call an alligator in a vest? An investigator. (ba ha ha)
The theme of our family party was dogs.
I made a cardboard doghouse for Lydia's presents and
I also threw together a 'Dog dress up kit'.
In the 'Dog dress up kit': Head bands with felt dog ears I made, a ribbon collar and
a small doggie treat of candy dog bones to snack on during the show.
Here is our 8 year old with her cute little birthday present. Yep a little puppy. Tonight the puppy has found a new home in the cardboard doghouse next to Lydia's bed. :) Oh how we love you lovely Lydia. Happy Birthday.
This was just a family party and what a precious time with our family it was!
