A 'DOG-GONE' great birthday!

Faisal had such a great day yesterday. To start he had one of his favorite things for breakfast, doughnuts! I wanted to do a dog themed party for him so we invited four of his friends from the ward and had such a fun little party. Here are a TON of pictures from the festivities.
He got right into the dog eating theme during breakfast! LOL


The front door and front porch were covered in dog prints...it looked so cute!



This was my HUGE task.....the doggy cake! It had a few minor errors (like trying to tip over!) but overall I was pretty pleased with how it turned out. Best of all Faze LOVED it, it was hard to keep him from touching it.


You can't tell in this picture, but he really loves it!
A view from the front


There's a happy face!

These were the invitations....so easy and so cute! I just used four suckers and taped them together, then I wrapped white tissue paper around them to form a bone.

These were the 'Doggy Bags'. I got some cute dog bowls and filled them with that chex mix stuff that is covered in chocolate and powdered sugar, it really did look like doggy chow.


These were the tags that I attached to the 'Doggy Bags', they looked so cute!
Since I wasn't serving the Dog cake at the party I made each child their own dog cake. I just got those individual angel food cakes and frosted them, piped on a name and filled them with coco puffs cereal.

When the guests arrived they were given their dog collar, a set of doggy ears and we painted their faces to look like a dog...it was so stinkin cute. Some of our doggies opted not to wear their make up....oh well, that is three year olds for ya!

Faisal displaying his attire, minus his make up. He hated his collar and promptly yanked it off after I took this picture. Lil stinker!
I loved this shot of him...how cute is my boy?!


We had a little lunch for the 'doggies'. I made PB & J sandwiches shaped like bones, goldfish crackers, apples and punch. What a cute dog he is!

Our front door sign was also used to play 'pin the collar tag on the collar'. The kids seemed to have fun playing it. AFter playing this we went out side and all the kids were given bubbles to play with.

PRESENT TIME! Faze got some really fun gifts from his friends. Thanks everyone!
