Swamp People Birthday Party...

i'm serious.
we had a Swamp People party for Jordan's birthday.
to her credit,
she had no idea of the theme.
but she did love it,
southern girl that she is!
we always go all out with a theme,
decorating,
planning a whole day of fun for the birthday girl.
and now that my girls are older, we still do themes...
and sometimes, like THIS time,
the SILLIER the better.
(although SpongeBob was pretty silly:)

what can i say...
we love watching Swamp People:)
and Bayou Billionaires.
and Duck Dynasty.
could be worse.
oh yes it could...and you know it:)

to her credit, Taylorina did an AMAZING job decorating.
(what an amazing little hostess she is:)
we had pics of some of the swamp people...
Troy (our favorite), Jacob, Junior, Willie.
some of the "sayings" to come from the show...

we used plenty of camo, balloons and crepe paper.
  a green Hula skirt decorated the kitchen Island,
HEY...we have a PRETTY swamp!
(swamp people hostess Taylor)
some yummy GATOR EGG cookies
 (well, that's what WE called them anyway;)
and we found these cool gator hats.


ahem...a party from the DOLLAR store...
that made it even better!

but maybe the best part was the cake Taylor made. (we LOVE cake)
she baked a french vanilla cake and using food coloring,
made it in camouflage colors.
Then, using my Mom's frosting recipe (Jordie's favorite)
she frosted the cake so creatively and COOL!
even set "gator lines"!
(good thing chocolate gators are everywhere down here...
and by the way..."CHOOT EM" is another line from the show:)
it was SO yummy, despite being the colors of swamp and mud. hahahaha
what can i say...it was FUN!
we went to the beach, watched Swamp People, went to dinner...
and went to the drivers license office where Miss J got her
