Sydney's 6th Birthday Party

The most popular birthday party in this house is the sleepover.  This was Sydney's first one.  Her theme were "big eyed animals."

Sydney made her own invites...

They decorated pillow cases...

Made party hats for their own big eyed animal which got to sleep in their handmade sleeping bags that I didn't take a picture of but sure wish I did!

Rudolph was a last minute wardrobe change.  I am pretty sure she was a cat a week before at the school's Trunk-or-Treat.

Pumpkin Carving 2014

A visit from a cousin

A visit from a family and a new basketball goal sparks some fun between cousins!
