Look who's 10!!! Wooohooooooooooooo!!!

Our little Kristen had a birthday earlier this month.

We celebrated by having a "Hobo" party ;)

The table setting. Little hobo sacks for their take home bags.

Random jars with daisies, lots of bowls of candy!

I made all the decorations this year.

A banner using the leftover material from the hobo sacks.

Garland that I punched out of patterned paper. Little flags

for the cupcakes and a banner with her name. I didn't get a good picture of that but I'll show it later.

All the girls came dressed in their worst hobo gear.

They were soooo cute and all different!

I sent them on a scavenger hunt around the neighborhood to collect the food for their hobo dinners.

We played lots of games.

That donut game. Though we used teeny powdered donuts instead of the big ones.

They even had to work to make their dinners, with carrots, potatoes, meat, corn and cheese.

I was a little worried not everyone would like a tinfoil dinner but they all wolfed it down and loved it!!!

We had a toilet paper mummie race.

As well as some other costume games.

I think they had the most fun playing the chocolate game.

You throw dice and if you get doubles you have to put on all this stuff then try to cut a piece of a candy bar and eat it. It's quite the race!

Here's Kristen just as she's about to get a piece of chocolate and somebody rolls doubles so she has to stop and take everything off! It's blurry, but I love her reaction.

Cake time.

Present time.

Some of the presents were wrapped in newspaper, or as this one...a garbage bag!

It was such a fun party!

I can't believe it's been 10 years since this little girl came along and changed my life foreva!

I adore her!!!!
