A couple weeks ago (on July 14th) we celebrated Liv's 6th birthday! It's hard to imagine it's been six years since my princess arrived, but she sure acts like a 6-year-old! For her birthday she chose a Mario theme since she LOVES the Mario Party games and the new Super Mario Bros on the Wii! Since in Mario Party they play mini games that are a lot like carnival games we decided to do the same! We had Bean Bag Toss, Balloon Pop, Ring Toss,Bottle Knock Down, and a couple other fun games! The kids earned stars for their accomplishments (just like in Mario Party)and kept track of them on a score card around their neck. The cake I was especially proud of, and thoroughly enjoyed making since Todd was able to stay home and take care of the kids while I made it! (And a special thanks to Allison Smith for the inspiration!) Liv was blessed with several gifts, but she especially loved her new purple horse! Thanks to all the kiddos that came (and parents for bringing them), the party was a success... Liv said it was her favorite one!
