So Doggone Fun

Our dog lover wanted a DOG birthday party...
And it just so happens that Disney's Beverly Hills Chihuahua was coming out close to her birthday. So, Sunday, I took a couple of her friends/cousins and their dogs (stuffed!) to the movie theater to see the show, which was darling. I know it got bad reviews, but that usually means it's good, huh? Well, the kids loved it and I laughed all the way through it. I am telling you, that usually does not happen. I am not a real big fan of talking animals, but I really enjoyed this one. Here are Ellie and her cousin Hallie at the theater. After the movie, we went back to the house where we had different stations:This is the dogeteria where there were dog bowls and "dogfood" (Cocoa Puffs, Scooby Snacks, Chex Mix, and Corn Pops) for the girls to snack on.Lindsey Loo, Ellie's friend since birth!!!The dogs also needed some primping, so we had a grooming station, where there were brushes, hair ribbons and perfume (for the dogs!) Here is Ellie's cousin Ana with her blue blue eyes and her dog Tiny. Kami made up a Dogstacle Course (her idea!) and led the girls through the outdoor challenges. They also made Doggie Bags for their treats and made diamond studded turquoise Doggie Tags at the Doggie Tag station (see above). Don't forget the Veterinarian and Dog Store... all in all it was a lot of fun! One final tidbit, I used evite to send out invitations (gasp! I usually create my own), but it was sooo easy and sooo freeing! I loved it.

That looks like sooo much fun! The cake was cute!! Im glad you liked the movie, i wasnt sure about it. I might have to take my daughter to see it.

*Thanks for your comment about my Barkley. I think you are right, that he was given to us so that his life would be good here. I think thats the whole thing. He wasnt given to us, for US, he was given to us for HIM =) Its still hard though.
