Old Photos and Good Memories

Scooby Doo Birthday!
I was looking through old photos while the kids were making crafts that are definitely Christmas themed, but rules.
I came across some great photos from G's third Scooby Doo themed birthday party. She has loved Scooby since the inception of television into her life. I remember the party so vividly, like it was yesterday. I suppose creating these lasting memories is why we get up at 5am to frost the homemade cake. I also remember it being the last time my grandma was at my house before she passed away. We laughed because when making Kraft Macaroni and Cheese we both use the box as the spoon holder. I have a few photos of her smile here on my computer...and many more in my mind. I get to see her in my jiggly arm fat and my style of cooking...a pinch of this, and a handful of that.

This sign was custom made by Simko Signs!
We played a "Mystery Game" where I pretended the cupcakes were missing and we had to follow "clues" to find them. Turns out my dad had taken them...and tried a few!
We also had a little dress up booth where the littles, eh hem, could try on their best Villain Disguise.
 The best photo for last of all...the birthday girl at three-years-old.
The Birthday Dress is from J.Crew
