Party Like a RockStar!

Today is Kennedy's 6th Birthday.  I can't believe my little girl is 6!!!  It brings a tear to my eye knowing that she is my last and that she's no longer my "baby".  The amount they change between the ages of 5 and 6 are dramatic.  She goes to school and is a big girl now.  She's out-grown Dora the Explorer.  She has grown-up conversations with me and is learning to read.  I have to hold on to the little things I guess.  Like the fact that she still has a hard time saying her R's.  I love that.  And she will still snuggle up with me under Mr. Blankie.  Last Saturday we had her birthday party with a few friends.  This is the first party I have thrown for her so she was way overdue for one.  We decided on a Rock Star/Club Libby Lu theme.  It was so much fun!  Here are some shots of the grand day. 

Her invite that looked like a VIP/Backstage Pass - with a lanyard and all.

The Bouncers.  You don't wanna mess with them! 

It was a little wet (surprise surprise) so we had to put the Red Carpet inside.

It was nice to have the older kids there to help out.
Cameron did the music, the craft, the fog machine, 
the video, the Freeze Dance game and so much more! 
Cassidy and her friend Hannah were the bouncers, the
fashion consultants, and the manicurists.      

The Roadie.  

The goodie bag full of sunglasses, a microphone, candy, lip gloss, 
and a mix CD of Hannah Montana, Justin Bieber, and Taylor Swift 
songs among others.   

Of course we had to have a little sparkle and pazazz.  They had matching silver sequin costumes that sparkled on stage. We also added glitter 
eye shadow and lip gloss along with a Rock Star hairstyle.

The Birthday Girl herself all rocked out.

Matt took some Before and After shots of the girls.  So cute!

And we can't forget the Paparazzi.

These girls really knew how to ROCK IT.  They had no problems letting 
loose on the stage.  I enjoyed every minute of it!  I think we should
have an adult version of that party!  Rock on!!
