Happy birthday, LIzette Hope!

Okay, so who is Lizette Hope? It's Makenna's cabbage patch doll!! And so to honor her birthday (according to her birth certificate below), we had a birthday party with Makenna's friends and their baby dolls!
The guest of honor

Homemade birthday hats (that cost me NOTHING, as I had all materials at the house!)

Makenna Rae & her friend Carmen with their baby dolls

After getting into pretty dress up clothes, the girls posed for pictures with their baby dolls!

(from Left to right) Jazmine (our neighbor), Carmen, Makenna & Teagen

Womb-buddies Frank*star & J-man held it down for the boys in the corner!
We used the poster from Makenna's room, some party decorations we already had, and only bought "Happy Birthday" plates & napkins and balloons from the Dollar Tree, for a grand total of $3!
After singing Happy Birthday to the birthday "girl", the girls got to dig in!!
I served Cheese Nips that I got for 10 cents a box during Harris Teeter's SuperDoubles, muffins & animal cookies leftover from a brunch with my mommy's group, canned pineapple (that is 17 cents a can during triples @ HT this week) with a key lime yogurt/whipped topping dip, and cupcakes that I made from a Martha White muffin mix (that I got 37 cents this week during triples) and strawberry frosting that I got free a long time ago! Total cost of this cool get-together was only $5!!

After the girls ate, they went & played with dolls, the kitchen & tea party set, dress up clothes, but the biggest hit was the balloons! The girls had a BLAST tossing them in the air, hitting each other in the faces, etc! The moms also had a great time talking about all sorts of fun stuff, and managed to get our snack too!

Makenna in her new dress (there is a matching one that should have arrived in FL via my dad for my sister's daughter, Chloe. Who says being seperated by a few states means that we can't still dress them to match!)
This is by far my favorite picture of this entire year. It brought tears to my eyes. This is me with the Cabbage Patch Doll I had when I was a little girl holding Makenna with Lizette. Is there anything more special than the bonding of cabbage patch dolls between generations? I think not.

This is a great playdate idea! Our MOMS Club comes up with good ones too. We cook with our kids, have playdoh playdates, science club, bubbles at the park, ride-on toys at the high school track in the summer, ask local farms if we can visit and more. We try to make all our playdates local, free or little cost and it works! Amazing what mama's looking to socialize will come up with, eh? The pictures you took were so sweet :)

Throughout the long occupation, US policymakers constantly balanced the need to convince Filipinos of their intentions while convincing hostile elements domestically that its annexation/incorporation proved no threat.
