Olivia's Minnie Mouse Soiree- Part 3

Welcome to the last installment of Olivia's 4th birthday celebration-
here is Part 1 & Part 2.


With little tummies full, guests headed outdoors to play...


....and it appeared they were all having a great time:)  Bonus!


I love this picture of Scarlett...


...sliding into Daddy's arms:)


The birthday girl was thrilled to have so many playmates...


...and so was Jonah:)


And last but not least, it was time for "Minnie",
 my first ever homemade pinata, to make her appearance:)


The birthday girl was up to bat first...


...and with a calculated aim...


...swung with all her might...


...and then paused as a lollipop came flying out!


Here is Hope ready to give "Minnie" a jostle:)

 

For some reason, Jonah seemed reluctant to hit "Minnie"...


...so he gave her a love pat:)


 Then Jude was up and showed everyone how it's done!


Daddy Brian stepped in to retrieve the bat...


...so that Kellan could take a whack...


......which he did with great gusto!


And then Rose came flying over to do her bit of damage &
 kept pausing as sweets came trickling out:)


Finally we asked "Uncle Brian" to do the honors...


...and the troops swarmed in to retrieve their treasure:)


 Many little hands...




...were set in motion...


...and sometimes paused, like Jonah, for a lollipop:)


Every last sweet was retrieved and stowed away...


...including the last lollipop, Livy's favorite sweet:)


This day was so special as friends & family gathered with us...


...but was especially sweet as "Aunt Tole"...


...and Uncle Timmy were able to be with us...


...as well as having the help of "Auntie Yeah" & Uncle Alex...


..and the momentous help of Gramma & Granddaddy!


Everything combined made Olivia's 4th birthday special & meaningful:)

 

We were all pooped by the end, but so very happy & blessed!


And seeing Hope hopscotch over the chalk Minnies on her way home was a real bonus!

A great success & I can't wait for the next party!!!
