If you’re a grandmother, you know it is hard to say “no” to a grandchild. So, when my six year-old granddaughter asked if she could have her seventh birthday party at my house, I told her I thought it would be fun. (Truth be told, I do enjoy children’s parties.) I suggested a circus theme (I have all of the décor for that), but she was having none of that. She wanted a Lalaloopsy party! Do you know who Lalaloopsy is?
Meet one of many Lalaloopsy dolls. I do not know the name of each doll (although I hear the names frequently from my granddaughter.) These are very collectible if you are seven years old or younger. (Do you think my granddaughter is picking up my bad collecting habits?)
My granddaughter brought over all of her Lalaloopsies and the necessities that go with them (even though she said she would miss them overnight). That is when I realized that Lalaloopsies have BIG heads. They cannot sit or stand without something to support them, and even then, their heads might fall forward, causing them to take a nose dive onto the table.
My daughter-in-law drew circles on paper plates to make the button streamers on the doors. I have got to learn how to take pictures when the sun is shining behind what I’m photographing. Any hints?
Have you been to a children’s party recently? It really is a lot of fun, and I didn’t even mind that, after I worked to prop all of the dolls on the table, the girls grabbed them to play with (they did ask first). Thank you for stopping by to meet Lalaloopsy. laurie
