For the Love of Owls!

So you may remember that Birthday Celebrations are not my forte!  I wrote about it in my Candy Land Party post, when we were celebrating Sarah's birthday months after its occurrence.  We do have family parties, but I never seem to get around to the friends party, so this Owl Party was a combined 2012 birthday celebration for both Isabelle and Sarah!  I'm certain it's one the girls will always remember!
As we were contemplating what type of party to have, the girls finally settled on an owl theme!  {Pretty easy, even for this "party planning challenged" girl!}
One of the highlights of the party was the Owl Pal game!

Each of the kiddos colored their own Owl Mask {purchased from JoAnns and altered to have owl ears instead of bear ears}!
Then donning their masks, they listened to the instructions on finding their "pal"...a little felt mouse!

Instructions and a template for these sweet things can be found at Skip to My Lou!

We had hidden them all around the house!

Each kiddo found a mouse...and then discovered why they were numbered on the bottom!

Before the party we had made 14 different felt owls...using this amazing pattern by Snowy Bliss! Then we had them in bags with coordinating tags to the numbers on the mice!

As each kiddo opened their bag, they discovered their own owl to adopt and name! Each owl came with a poem to describe their personality and an adoption certificate! {Remember Cabbage Patch Kids...I think what made them so special was the Adoption Certificate that came with them!}
Here are a few of the owls we made!


The kiddos were awesome...after the Reveal Ceremony, they all took the opportunity to trade for the owl they preferred!  Each one was very gracious!
Ok, that's just the beginning! 
Zion and I are off to Children's Hospital today for a recheck on his kidneys!  We would appreciate your prayers!
Check back for more Owl Party details!
Thanks for stopping by!  Be Refreshed!


  1. How cute and clever! This claim that you're not a good party planner - hogwash! ;) I need to consult with you before my next SLG event.

    1. When I say I'm not good...I mean not able to come up with ideas easily...not to mention that I procrastinate!!! I'm so blessed to live with very creatively minded people!
