Silly Jilly's birthday bash!

Silly Jilly had a super silly whimsical party to celebrate her one year birthday!  We invited close friends and family over to celebrate the occasion.

We had 12 kids under the age of 6 to try to entertain at the party.  Papa Z and I had a good time making up games for the kids to play.  All the games pertained to Silly Jilly's life.  They included:

1.  An obstacle course.  Silly Jilly goes through an obstacle course on a daily basis.  We made a course for the kids to CRAWL not WALK through which included some of Silly Jilly's favorite items:  a tunnel, paper, the dog's water bowl, crawling under a table, a DVD case, and a TV remote control.

2.  Learning to stand.  Silly Jilly had taken her first wobbly steps when she was 11 months old.  The kids had to stand on a wobbly balance board and try not to tip the board.

3.  Where's Baby's Binky?  Papa Z and I spend and abnormal amount of time trying to track down lost Binkies (aka: pacifier).  We decided to sit back and let someone else find the Binky!  We hid ring pops and the kids got to do their own search for a Binky.

4.  Look what Silly Jilly made!   We took diapers and melted candy bars in them making it look like a pooh filled diaper.  The kids got to guess what type of candy bar was in each diaper.  Despite the gross factor of this game, I think it may have been the fan favorite. 

After completing all the games each guest was given a Boo Boo Bag (hot/cold pad) because we all know - big or small - kids get hurt 100 times a day!

We finished the party with cake and presents.  Silly Jilly had never eaten cake before and was not quite sure what to think of it.

I know Silly Jilly won't remember her first birthday party, but nevertheless it was fun to celebrate it with friends and family.
