Oh, Frozen...you still consume my girls and our house...so, when we decided to have a joint birthday party for hanna and claire, to save 2 weekends for people to travel, they instantly wanted an "Anna and Elsa Birthday party." and wanted a "jumpy house"!
So, we ended up renting our church gym (again) and renting a bouncy house (again ) and it was full of family and friends.
Since they have a big brother...all parties have some sort of entertainment for all ages...since my kids are all ages...
So, the bouncy house was more for the big kids...and had a little slide and bubble machine for Claire and her friends. If there are 3 things claire would do all day it's 1) jump on her tramp, 2) slide and 3) play with bubbles. so, i found a great bubble machine and it was a hit for all ages. good investment!
my parents brought their little slide and she pretty much slide the whole time. and never once stepped foot in the bouncy house. i think the big kids overwhelmed her! But, the bouncy house combo thing was awesome. bounce room, slide and obstacle course all in one! I don't think I ever saw Ty come out until it was cake time!
claire also loves balls...so i made sure lots of balls were there...and balloons!
all in all..it was a great time for kids to get some energy out..hopefully naps followed!
For food...we had "Sven's antlers" aka pretzels, "Elsa's Ice Crystals"- chocolate covered popcorn, "Snowballs"- Donut Holes, "Olaf's noses"- cheetos and carrots, and "Build Olaf" with marshmallows, raisins, pretzel sticks and candy corn....and let me just say.....I should have just had...
Donut holes, cheetos and marshmallows...those kids DEVOURED those 3 items..lol. good thing there was lots of playing going on..haha!
add cake and their sugar was meet for awhile! ha!
Kids played, parents talked and most importantly, the girls had a blast! and both feel asleep in car on the way home....which equals a successful bday party!
We have the best family and friends who took time to come celebrate our little girls!
Clearly, you can tell I made their Anna and Elsa cakes....they may not have been the prettiest but the girls loved them.
The bouncy house...
poor loaf's body was only eaten...haha.
up and down, up and down...
they love to play but when all eyes are on them...they get so shy!

Clearly we know who has the tall parents!! lol.

and that's the wrap...completely worn out!
after a little rest...and a few hours...although the invitation said, "no gifts please" we still have some super sweet friends who brought the girls some gifts...so, they got to open them! so very nice! and they loved them all!
the stroller has been pushed around constantly..
and the HUGE Frozen drawing set...has been broken in!ha!
How I didn't get a pic of all them on the girls new BIG tramp is beyond me...probably b/c I was being a wuss...me and cold, windy weather aren't the best of friends..
Hanna loved all her toys...but, being able to play/help Elly was probably her favorite...poor elly was so distracted the whole time...haha..
We had such a great time with family and celebrating our girls....can't believe they are 2 and 4!
