Reese's 4th UP Adventure Party

On Saturday, Reese had her 4th Birthday Party and she chose the theme of Disney Pixar UP. I have to admit - this one has been the most fun to plan so far! Balloons just make everyone happy! 

The party was supposed to be outside in our backyard but unfortunately we had some rainy weather. We ended up with 20 kids and 28 adults all inside. We set up the bounce house upstairs in the game room for the kiddos to be "wild" and opened the girls' rooms to allow kids to go play. We brought the dollhouse downstairs, which was a BIG hit with the little ones who didn't want to jump in the bounce house. I have to say - it went very smoothly with no major  meltdowns or injuries ;)

Enjoy the pictures...

She was so proud of pinata and constantly said "Thank you mommy for making my pinata!"


18ish kids later the pinata broke with the last child in line!

CANDY!

Reese, 
       Mommy & Daddy hope you felt very special at your birthday party and we know you are very loved with all your sweet friends who showed up! Your whole class practically came and I know that made you happy. Nobody wanted to miss you turning 4! I know you got some special bonding time with your Papa & Uncle Nathan who flew in from Illinois to see you. You asked Papa for a seemingly impossible gift: a purple octopus and wouldn't you know...he found you one! You immediately gave that purple octopus a big hug and named her "Jelly". We all love you very much and are proud of the girl you are becoming!
Love,
Mommy & Daddy
