Sweet Sixteen

August 4, 2012

For about 6 months I have been planning my 16th birthday party-- I know right? A long time! haha. Mostly because I have been looking for things at garage sales which needs a lot more time than buying everything at the store. So finally after all of the garage sales, shopping and crafting I had my party yesterday! It was a little early, o.k. a lot early-- four months to be exact. But I did it this way for two reasons...
1. At least half or so of my guests are leaving for college in the fall and I didn't want them to miss it-- they are such dear friends!
2. I wanted to do an outdoor party, that's sort of hard for December-haha

Anyways, I had a great time. I had everyone bring a dish that they made so it was like a little potluck. And the candy bar, well let's just say I saw it on a wedding TV show about a year ago and knew I had to incorporate it into some sort of party. It was perfect for this occasion! We played some games and then had some fun in the photobooth. I took a lot of the detail shots and then the people shots are mostly my aunt and my sister. I may have more pictures coming soon, but I just had to share these now!
Love lots! Alex

Ps. I posted lots, my apologies-- I got a little carried away!
PSS. This is the dress I got from ModCloth. It was my very special gift from my Mom <3

 Twirly dresses <3

Bathroom break haha

I should have better group pics coming soon!

 Bubble gum game-- so yes I am chewing a huge wad of gum haha

 Still chewing gum!

Blue tongue!

Laura played a lovely piece from a play she was recently in called, A Russian Musical-- so pretty!

Played a game where everyone had to write something silly for me to do. Then when they turned them in, the game took a twist! I drew out five and whoever's card I drew out had to do what they wrote down themselves! Paula wanted me to dance like a monkey so....

Jordan wanted me to run around the trees singing, We are the Titans-- Catie came along for moral support

 Had to post this! Makes me laugh <3

Love those glasses on Tanya <3

Quick funny story-- the sprinklers came on at the tail end! So we all scrambled to move the party to the parking lot. I couldn't resist snapping some pics-- even if they are a little blurry!

 Jordan hopping across the hard rocks :-b

And finally--- at the end of the night Laura stuck around to follow us home ( we live pretty close) and while we were packing up she and Chloe ran out into the sprinklers-- again, how could I resist pics?
