Jeepers! My baby turned 4!!
It's been Scooby Doo in our house since ClaireBear was about two years old. I tried it fight it as long as I could so finally we here are with a Scooby Doo birthday party! Here are a few pictures of Claire's birthday, I know some of you have seen them already on Facebook...but for you non-fb users here you go!

Claire's all time favorite character is Daphne on the cartoon so that is the birthday cake she asked for. Of course my girls get to pick the cake...so I did the best I could without a character Wilton pan!

This is the mystery machine I made as a prop for the party. This was the starting point for the mystery that was to be solved. If you look in the lower right-hand corner you can see one of the clues!

The first thing we did was dress each other up as mummies. Each kid had a partner and a roll of toilet paper to use!

Next was to solve the mystery. Claire's presents were dropped off in on the dining room table and I had the parents move them to the 'secret spot' while they were being mummies. Each child took a turn reading the Scooby Doo mystery clues.

They even had to go outside. One of the clues was hidden in someone's mailbox...this is a picture of the kiddos running after the other half of the kiddos who found the clue in the neighbors mailbox!

There were a total of nine clues scattered inside and outside the house. Each clue led to the next and they had to figure out what happen to the missing presents! They finally solved the mystery when they found Claire's presents inside the trunk of Daddy's car!!

We then opened presents, ate Daphne cake with Scooby and Shaggy's favorite ice cream and Phantom Punch.

One of her favorite presents was the Fancy Nancy Dress Up Trunk (she actually got two of them!) Here is one of my favorite pictures of her after her friends helped her dress up in the Fancy Nancy clothes.

And finally a picture of Scooby Doo and the gang!! (Thanks GT for being Scooby Doo!)
