...Your Backyard Friends the Backyardigans

A few of you are after me because you never saw pictures from Allie's family birthday party. Well... here are just a few.

As most of you know, Allie is OBSESSED with the Backyardigans... especially Uniqua. (or Da-Niqua as she says) Anyhoo... she had it in her mind that she was going to be a Backyardigan on her birthday. And if that was not bad enough... she was taking us down with her. She thought we were all going to be Backyardigans! She'd tell you "I'm gonna be Da-Niqua, Wyatt is Pablo, Mommy is Tasha, Daddy is gonna be Tyrone, and Turner (our cat) will be Austin 'cus he's a shy guy!" Who really knows what goes on in kids minds?!?!? Maybe I was just a little bitter because I was the Hippopotamus. Hmmmmm... I'll just tell myself it was because there was no other option... LOL!

Well, a Uniqua outfit is hard to come by I came to find out, so made her one to wear that day.

Here she is with Nana and Papa

This is her cake. You all know I can't cook or bake worth a flip, but I was happy with how it came out. It was my first attempt at using fondant icing, and it was so much fun. It was like playing with clay.

And here is Captain Pablo! I made him an outfit to wear too, but that's where I drew the line. There was no way I was going to wear Tasha's floral mumu!

David loves the backyardigans too. His favorite is Pablo. Jason likes to tease me because I get the songs stuck in my head and sing 'em all the time. My favorite is the pirate episode..."What do you do with a scurvy their ship and then hot wire it...what do you do with a scurvy pirate...make him walk the plank"

I have them stuck in my head too... of course we also have the cd so I can't even escape them in the car!!! Michael sings "A pirate, a pirate, a pirate says...." and Allie answers with "AHHHRRRRRR!!!" She loves the pirate episode!
