Sunday Snapshot~ Eight

so my girl turned eight... about 2 months ago I'm embarrassed to say. I am so behind.
anyhow, we are huge fans of the 1971 version of Willy Wonka. I do love my Johnny Depp but I have to say it, he didn't do Willy justice. Nothing can touch this....

moving on, we had a blast coming up with decorations and activities to follow along with the movie

edible mushrooms. actually, just the spots could be removed and eaten.
lickable wallpaper. melting jolly ranchers and painting them onto wallpaper seemed like such an easy task. still have the burn scars on my fingers, but we got'em done!

the girls helped me tape the candy to the walls

the First Lady invited all the girls in her class, all could come but 2 so it was a great turn out
check out the lollipop gumdrop tree she made for the table!

the brothers were in charge of the candy shop at the end of the party to make sure everyone filled their bag.

and dad kept the chocolate milk fountain under control

Lil' Lady loved being around the older girls, but she didn't last long and went down for a nap even though it was a bit loud and crazy.
we had the most fun with the fizzy lifting drinks and a burping contest afterward.

quite a few of those girls could burp like a man, let me tell ya.

our second tried to dazzle the ladies with his oompa loompa dance moves

yep, they were impressed.

dad and i did the cake. i worried that it would be two hard to eat, but those girls stripped it bare after it was cut. it wasn't pretty.

it was time to try out that lickable wallpaper. each one had their own to prevent "community licking"

i have to say these are really weird pictures.

once all the games were played and candy stripped from the walls it was time for everyone to head home. despite all the candy that was eaten i was impressed with how many were able to keep it under control.
