This year Darius #1419 has figured out Birthday Parties. He thought he should have a surprise Dora Dora party for his mommy. So we did:)
|This picture is a bit dark and out of focus because I was not ready when they arrived.|
My son Bryan and Darla arriving for the party.
|The Dora Dora cake we ordered because Gramma just did not feel up to making one.|
|Gramma did attempt to make a Dora Pinata. It was a far cry from looking like Dora, but the kids did not care as long as it had candy and they had a stick.|
Jonah # 6518 taking his turn at the bat.
|Olivia # 3317 was next, as cousins looked on in anticipation.|
|Cooper, # 5216 had come down with his mom from Alaska, so he got to take part too.|
I am always so excited when he and his mom and brother get to come down. His dad too, but he does not make it down as often as the others.
|Abigail #6415 takes her best shot.|
|Brystan #2310 is steadying it for|
|Elizabeth #6314 because she decided to do it blindfolded.|
|Darius, #1419 is up to bat again. I never noticed he had closed his eyes. He would not let me blindfold him.|
|Small tip, when you make a pinata, do not use decopage glue. It is too strong and the pinata does not break easily.|
They finally tore it from it's attachment string. Here, Angie, I think, had tossed it to Gina and she was batting it back.
|Finally Gina tore it and the mad scramble began.|
|The "Birthday Girl" and Bryan looking on.|
|Once she was emptied, Brystan #2310 and Cannyn #2208 wrecked their type of "boy havoc" on her.|
