Eliza's 8th Birthday

The morning of her birthday we let her open all her presents from us! Her birthday is kind of tricky because it is on Halloween. I think it kind of gets a little overshadowed. But I think she likes it that we get to drag it out over several days. Which this year....we definitely did.

 We decided to do her birthday party 2 days after Halloween. This was fun because the hype of Halloween kind of died down and the girls were excited for something girlie. When I asked Eliza what she wanted to do for her Party she said "A Squinkie Party"! Whaaat? There is no such thing. There was nothing online, no party supplies anywhere or ideas to steal. Trust me! I searched and searched! How can I make this fun and have it be a "squinkie" party? It was a little tricky but I think we pulled it off. We made some cute invitations and invited 8 friends. We then went with the miniature theme. Get it? Squinkies are teeny tiny, so all the food had to be a smaller version. Which was perfect for 8 year old girls. They loved it! 
"Mini Tacos"
"Mini blueberry muffins" and "Mini Watermelon" made from hollowed out limes and red jello! These were a big hit!




"Mini Pizzas"
Popcorn chicken = "Mini Chicken Nuggets"
Julienne carrots and persian cucumbers = smaller!
We also had mini peanut butter cups and mini m&m's. 



We had a squinkie scavenger hunt, made fabric beaded neckalaces, ate our fun lunch opened presents and had cake and icecream. Over all a success! Eliza was happy and that is all that mattered!

Happy birthday again Eliza. It looks like you had a great party. You did a great job with the food and decorations Amber. We are so glad to see these blogs. Great photos. I commented on our cute grandchildren in their darling costumes on the last blog but it didn't show up. Love you all.
