M.E.'s Birthday Part II: Candy Party at the Compound
Mary Ella's candy-themed birthday party was a huge success, thanks to my wonderful mother who pretty much did everything! In fact, she helped me pull off not one but TWO candy parties for the little diva, one at her house on July 3rd (for the Compound side of the family) and another one at my house this past weekend! Both parties were so much fun and it was great to see so many of our friends and enjoy some sweet treats together!
Treat Boxes (Everyone left with a box filled with candy of their choice) These boxes are from WalMart, the labels are from Mom's computer.
Candy-themed fondant cake (Made by my 13-year-old cousin Annsley! She even made the fondant herself.)

She thoroughly enjoyed opening her gifts.
Aunt Betsy gave her her first Miss Potato Head
And she received plenty baby dolls, diaper bags and other accessories. Oh, and Mom even appliqued this outfit for her to go with the candy theme...
Sam was an angel throughout the party; I think he prefers to sleep when he's in a crowded room. He slept through both birthday parties. Here he is with cousin Ann Marie.
I didn't get many pictures of her birthday party at our house here in Birmingham, but I'll try to post them tomorrow. Good night!
