She knows what she wants!


Or so she says.

Mr. Jenny and I give our Grands a Birthday party each year as their gift from us. They help plan the entire thing and always seem to know exactly what they want.

We've done the bouncer parties, and the pony parties, and the glittery girl parties...

And this past week I've spent quite a bit of time with our middle Grand planning her 7th Birthday party.

She knows what she wants!

She wants to have it in a park.

With a lot of running and races and relays.

She wants medals and trophies.

She wants cupcakes. Pink frosting, please.

She wants pizza. Just cheese, please.

She wants goodie bags for all her little friends.

She's been uber-excited and I really thought we had it all figured out.


Until last night when I talked to her on the phone and she told me "Grandma! Grandma! I forgot the most important thing I want for my Birthday party!"

I told her to hold on while I got my party notepad out and then she informed me, "The only thing we forgot Grandma, is to get Hannah Montana to come and sing!"

Hmmm...

Hmmm....

Uh oh!

Know any Miley Cyrus impersonators!?!

Sigh...

But in another little twist, she has now decided that she would really rather have balloon relays. Don't tell Miley how easily she was replaced, please!

PS. I had an e-mail from a fellow blogger who asked me to mention a jewelry giveawy she's having. If you have a second, just click here! She has some cool fabric flowers for hair and some pretty fall related jewelry. Thanks!

OMG! You are a rocking good Grandma!
I would come impersonate but I am afraid that no one would be fooled.

Oh jeezus murphy lol . How about just play her music ? or watch her new movie? I like Hannah montana too but c'mon . you can't always get what you want. Even hannah montana knows that

Holly said...

That is too funny!!!! You obviously can do ANYTHING!!! and your granddaughter knows it!!!!
I think you should get a kareoke (sp) machine with all her songs and let the girls sing. of course you and gramps should do the hoedown song and dance just to give them some laughs!!!!
Can't wait to see how this turns out!!!

Su-sieee! Mac said...

What a great gift to give your grandkids! Having none myself, seeing as I have no kids, I shall live vicariously through you. :-)

Pixie said...

November baby I take it? November babies are the best....I should know, I'm one LOL ;)

Jeanie said...

Well, if the real Hannah is already booked, I like the idea of a karaoke machine, of course you have to have the video machine and all.

Oh I think Miley could use a humbling reality check like that one!!!

You gotta love the way a kid's mind works!!!

Kat said...

She is too cute. What a great party she's going to have. And glad to hear that she decided against Hanna Montana, that might have been difficult to pull off! Balloon relays sound like more fun anyway :) Kat

La said...

Whew! That was a close one.

Bonnie said...

You are an amazing grandma! She is very lucky and she is just adorable!

I'm glad she let you out of the Hannah Montana request. heehee

Jocelyn said...

What a sweetheart.....thank goodnes Grandma that Miley could be so easily replaced...that would have been a tough one!!!

Isn't being a Grandma the best!!!

Wishing you a wonderful day!!!

Aging Mommy said...

Hilarious! Well thank goodness Miley is so easily replaced by balloon races!

My daughter will not be four until February but is already planning her party, for which she wants a bouncy castle and lots of girls, only two boys can come. When I asked her who the boys were she said "Cash" so then I said that's only one boy to which she replied "no, Daddy is coming as well" - silly me :-)

I hope you have a really fun party in the park!

I am so glad she gave up on Hannah Montana...a balloon relay would be so much easier. and less messy. :)

Terra said...

Will I get an invite? This party is going to ROCK even without Hannah

RNSANE said...

By the time I get a grandchild, I'll probably not even remember who I am to have a birthday party. You are the best, Jenny.

Sue said...

You are such a fun grandma! They are lucky you belong to them.

=)

PS. I followed the link. Cute stuff!

Jo said...

geez you are such a good grandma ... who needs Hannah with a Gram like you!!!

Brenda said...

What a great Grandma you are. A birthday party of their choice. I don't know, maybe you should see if Miley is available. Not only are you a great grandma but an awesome friend. I think I received my first ever Thanksgiving card. Made my heart thankful for you for sure. And you are onto the Christmas cards I see from a previous post. I really should get mine made this year and out on time. I missed the last couple of years. Have a wonderful Thanksgiving Jenny Matlock!

She's such a sweetie - If I knew an entertainer I'd send her on down to the party.

Deb said...

CherylK said...

Hi Jenny! Haven't been around for awhile and I've missed you. I don't know where the time goes, I really don't.

You are a VERY good grandma! Even if you can't get Hannah Montana for a birthday party-ha!

I hope you are having a lovely weekend!

Pat @ Mille Fiori Favoriti said...

This sounds like a really fun party! You are such a good grandma to fulfill all their wishes!

Slamdunk said...

Sounds like you all are having fun with it--plans change at that age so frequently.

I won't tell Billy Ray's daughter...

Tina said...

The Hannah Montonna one is gonna be a tricky one eh? haha! The things we do for our loved ones!

Nice idea though. I'm sure they all appreciate your parties and will remember u for them when they are older
