Sydney's 5th birthday: Circus-y Fun!

Oh, how I love planning birthday's & Syd picked an awesome theme for her's this year- CIRCUS (our invite here).

We had hotdogs, popcorn, pretty sodas, & lots of treats (animal crackers, taffy, circus peanuts, & chocolate ringmaster mustaches). We even rented a cotton candy machine!



After lunch we decorated "clown"/party hats:

Then we took pictures in the "photobooth" (I put up a background & used my instamax camera). We also had various "circus" goodies to put on & everyone got a picture to take home with them!


To top the afternoon off we opened presents & enjoyed cake.
Syd had SUCH a fun time & a big thanks to everyone who came to celebrate our little Syd-o turning the big 5!
