sorry, it just seemed like a catchier title than "101 dalmations birthday party hosted by cruella deVil for my 6-year-old daughter's birthday." (did you know that was the nickname for the deVil mansion?)
anyway, my middle child, my only daughter, turned 6 this week. i'm trying to let my kids have as much creative license with their birthdays as i can stomach, and it's hilarious to me what they come up with. for my daughter, the request was a birthday dinner, with only one invited guest, with a 101 dalmations theme, chinese food, an ombre ruffled cake (she chose it from pinterest- that was not a good plan in hindsight), and for me to dress up as cruella deVil. yeah, she's funny.
so we decided that cruella would host an over-the-top dinner at her glamazon mansion and that yes, i would be in full regalia. obviously, i'm still too tired and traumatized to make too much commentary on this post, but i thought you'd enjoy seeing the pictures. and happy birthday to my wonderful, unique, creative 6-year-old!
and now, to completely demonstrate what a total cheeseball i really am, i give you cruella:
yes, i had it all in my closet except the gloves and the wig. oh, and for another chuckle and to further nail down the coffin of my un-coolness, i could not help but make this after a furry someone committed a little crime the next morning:
yes, these are the kinds of things i spend my free time doing and texting to all my friends. well, anyway, there you have it...our party at cruella deVil's mansion, which we should probably rename now that she's a follower of Jesus. lol!
and happy birthday to my beautiful girl! thank you for an amazingly fun, if totally bizarre, party dahling.
