157: Fairy Hunting- 8th Birthday

6 Nov

Today is the day. When school lets the early release out, I am taking Missy Mack and a friend to lunch and then to set up the fairy party. I am so excited!!!!

We got there and got familiar with the wildlife.


We decorated:

Jim Jim’s Water Ice Showed up and set up:

Mr. Mack decided to open up the party to see how many water ices we could eat. We let the girls just keep going back for more. At the end with 13 girls and a handful of adults we put away 93 water ices. Impressive!

Granddaddy started the party by telling the girls the Legend of the fairy that came to Dunvegan Castle, where our ancestors lived on the Isle of Skye in Scotland.


Then we began our fairy hunt!

We hunted in groups. The girls had to look for a fairy house and the fairy that lived there. At each house, there was a bag of jewels for the girls to take one. They were to collect a jewel at each spot to use to decorate their fairy flag at the next station.

The other stations were decorating their own fairy flag and a fairy photo booth were their were props and hand made fairy halos that my BFF made for each girl at the party.

I am going to brag and say this is by far the best birthday party I have ever done. Pinterest helped, of course, and so did the weather. I am going to ride this kind of stuff as long as my little girl has the imagination to go with this sort of theme and love for this kind of party. You could tell that some of the girls still long for this kind of fantasy in their lives and had left it behind because they have older sisters. Others ate it all up. Missy Mack came up with the idea and helped me plan. I did have to bring her down to earth the night before because her imagination had gotten a little out of control, but the whole thing was fun from start to finish. I don’t regret it from the fantasy to the 93 water ices.


Happy 8th Birthday to my beautiful imaginative, dramatic, full of life  and fantasy little girl that has changed our life in so many ways and I wouldn’t have any other way. Thank you for being the best gift ever!
