A Candy Land Adventure...

...For our Sweet 3 year old Ally!

What a FUN party we had on Friday night for our 3 year old! Ally loves playing Candy Land so I decided to go all out and have a Candy Land Adventure for her and her friends. She loved all the decorations and was very excited each day this week to see the new decorations I created while she was asleep. Here is the birthday girl with her proud big brother standing in front of the crazy candy tree.

After countless photos this is the best family picture I have:-) wasn't for a lack of trying!!

The mantle decorations. We had the board game covering the walls of the living room and the garage. I wanted you to feel like you were "in the game". Ryan had the brilliant idea to make the painted arrows and they were my favorite decorations.

Click on this picture to see more detailed pictures of the party. We had mini gingerbread houses to decorate, candy beaded bracelets, Candyland Christmas cards as well as a lot of snacky foods. Mrs. Crumpler really outdid herself this time on the sugar cookies-they looked exactly like the game!

The party wouldn't have been nearly as cute without the help of the Cersey Team. Thank you sisters for your willingness to help put on a great birthday party.

Decorating the houses

Singing Happy Birthday. Ally was singing Happy Birthday all night to CUTE!

Look at my yummy cookie!

The guests. These people bless my life every day. Thank you for celebrating with us. Sorry Honey, GP, Grandma and Grandpa for the lack of family pictures. Thank you for being there and loving Ally SO MUCH! Click on this picture to see all their beautiful faces.

The Warren family

Presents and more presents. We are so blessed by our generous family and friends!

Ally really enjoys this cake stacker game. The teacher in me loves an educational gift. You can stack this cake by number, then make an 'even' cake and an 'odd' cake. (Really, really cool!)

"Dad look at my Tiny Tot basketball!" She loves dribbling this all over the house (and so does her brother.)

The kids were very interested in the opening of the gifts:-)

Ally, Daddy and I love you so much and we truly count it a privilege to be your parents. Thank you for a wonderful 3rd year!

Happy Birthday!
