Who the heck is Foofa?

Bonjour from Campagne Maison

Well, let me introduce you....

This is:  FOOFA

and these are some of her friends: Muno, Brobee, Plex, and Toodee

They are characters in one of Nick, Jr's educational programs, Yo Gabba Gabba,  and are brought to life in stories told by D.J. Lance and his magic boom box

It was officially decided on the Sunday before the following Saturday--yes, an astounding six days of which one required an overnight stay at the hospital and another required a 7 hr drive to party destination--that Emma's first Birthday Party was to have the "Yo Gabba Gabba" theme. THAT put Mamaw (moi) in a frantic Internet search because it has been over ten years since this family had an infant having those "firsts" to celebrate in life.

"Yo Emma, Emma...Happy Birthday"

As those previous ten years birthday parties kept REcurring in cycles thru my brain--and in no specific order---Tellie Tubbies, Tweetie Bird, Looney Tunes, Blues Clues, Spiderman, Toy Story, (well, you get my drift) and knowing that time was of the essence, I quickly began a Google search:  Nick, Jr..FOUND IT!!  "Yo Gabba Gabba"... FOUND IT!!...  FREE downloads--tell me this a'int so!!! I've hit pay-dirt!!  An online order for party tableware and a quick trip to Walmart completed the deal. Now, it was up to me!

a Foofa Onesie with the addition on her pink tutu completed her party outfit
(thank you Nick Jr for the free character downloads)
Working frantically, I suddenly REalized that Emma wasn't the only one getting older, as my once steady hands and keen eyesight struggled slowly to complete their tasks.  

 Her very own Foofa cake

and a cake for all her guests

 LOTS of presents to open

I am THIS many!!

What else could any girl ask for?

Yo Emma Emma, Yo Gabba Gabba...Happy 1st Birthday !

Thanks for stopping by the farmhouse for a visit! We love having company.

Au  revoir,

Special Thanks to: Pam Gonzales Cakes and Nick,Jr downloadables

I enjoyed all of Emma Sue's precious photos. I regret I did not get to see you all during your visit to Arkansas. Jacque, you did a beautiful job on all the decorations and her outfits. What a lucky little girl she is to have such a talented Mawmaw. I love and miss you as always. And look forward to the day we can have a good long visit. Till then....take care of yourself and my very best to you and Sammy.
Love Always,
