And a huge thank-you to Google and the amazing technology right at tip of our fingers. I found loads of ideas and stole a few. Here's a look at some things we prepared for the party ahead of time....
- Mini bow and arrow set for each girl
- Brave activity book (needs to be printed, cut and glued ahead of time)
- Large PVC bow and arrows (my sweet nephew made 5 of them for our family - he made a variation of this bow and arrow) - see pics below....
I meant to take a picture of our dinner, but the three hours seemed to fly-by that I completely forgot to snap one. The dinner menu included: chicken legs, mashed potatoes & gravy, corn, fruity jello. A meal meant for a princess like Merida!
Now for the pictures of all the fun.....

|Melody and all her friends ready for cake-time (the Brave cake that I worked so hard on - NOT! (unless I can count taking 6 kids to the store to pick it up???)|
|8 is definitely GREAT!!!|
Thank you God for the last eight years we have had with this beautiful girl!!!
