Charli Beth's Birthday Sock Hop

I finally gave pictures to share and keep as a memory of the fun sock hop party that we celebrated Charli's birthday with. We were overly excited about this party. The poodle skirts, records, root beer floats, oh my! The cuteness overload was almost to much for this Momma to handle. My Mom and family friend Shannon did an amazing job creating the pieces to decorate the party with.

When Charli's friends arrived she quickly wanted to start their dancing. For the majority of the party she was the only one up twisting and doing the splash splash. It was so cute and brave of her to continue to dance. It never did phase her what-so-ever, because of the fun she was having.

We served pizza, root beer/coke floats, cupcakes, cookie French fries and hamburgers, along with old fashioned bottle drinks. Pizza and Sam's cupcakes are always the way to go! So yummy and easy to serve. After eating the kids danced more, hula hooped and played with balloons.

Charli had asked me about a month before he party if she could have donations at her party to give to a homeless shelter. I thought this was the greatest idea ever, even more so since our home is completely over ran by toys. We had donations from guests at the party, our church and friends. We were able to donate over 200 items to the local Hospitality House - the home in which I stayed at during Bryar's NICU stay. Everything there along with the building is from donations and is such an amazing place.

When we started opening gifts we had to time everything completely right, so to say the least it was chaos. Charli received cowgirl attire, horse bedroom decor, horse toys and more. When finished I blind folded her telling her that we had a game to play outside, but everyone had to be very quite and follow us, little did she know it was not a game but a!!

Charli has been saving her money for almost two years to buy a horse when the time was right. After much talking, debates and finding the horse that was in her price range we found the most laid back 5 year old quarter mare.

After coming back inside the kids twisted, shouted and were all ready to party down while the parents chatted. It was such an amazing party and the days since have been super busy. My next post will be all about my new cowgirl and how turning 7 has come with more responsibilities.

Can I please ask how you printed the writing on the cups?

Can you please tell me how you printed on the glasses? I'm doing a Father Daughter dance in about 6 weeks for the American Heritage Girls troops in our region and have been looking for a trick to do this on the cheap! :)


Story of Mommy

My photo
I am a sinner saved by the grace of God. A wife to the 5oh, and Mother to Charli Beth and Bryar. This is my story of Motherhood, life experiences and sometimes even my overwhelming heart all typed out. I believe in second chances, yet the firm hand of parenting. That sweet tea is of the comfort food category. Chickens belong in every backyard. Children should each have a responsibility of their own while helping take care of duties in the home. Sports are a must for our family, and we spend many nights on courts or fields. We consistently feel new to each of the experiences that are brought into our lives. But we are always excited for the journey in which God has given us.
