letty's raven queen birthday party

I say party but it's really just family. And family can get quite large around these here parts which is just how I like it! Letty chose a Raven Queen theme. Now to those not in the know, which I wasn't either, Raven Queen is a character in the Ever After High series, all about the children of our favorite fairy tale characters. Raven doesn't want to be evil like her mother, the Evil Queen. That's why she looks terribly gothic and scary. But Letty likes her and so she wanted that as a theme. Talk about hard to do! I got purple and black balloons and paper products of course, I tried to do something about centerpieces but like I said, not so easy. The cake, courtesy of my parents, came from Cake and Cup Bake Shoppe which is where we always get our cakes and even they were able to whip up an appropriately decorated cake.  

Anyways so we ate lots of good food and chatted before Letty opened up her presents. She is one lucky little lady! She got tons and tons of crafts which is her thing as of late. She got a sewing kit, doodle socks, sun catchers, some fun new earrings and a book, a k'nex ferris wheel, a weaving loom, a Toys R Us shopping trip with Nonna, and some money to pad her college fund. I mean this girl cleaned up big time! And her mother had to really stretch her mind to figure out a place to store all said goodies. A big giant thank you thank you to all! We love and appreciate you all so much!
It was such a gorgeous day out but not really warm enough for the little ones to swim, but that didn't stop the big ones from jumping in on repeat! Once most of the party headed home we had ourselves a fire pit as well... We sure haven't gotten to see our Fitzs a lot this summer and we miss them so!
