{Giveaway} Beverly Hills Chihuahua 2 + Birthday party photos

by Katrina - The Organised Housewife

I love lazy day’s and that’s exactly what we had last weekend after our big party day. 

Here are pics of our patio decorated in yellow and white for the party.  I didn’t take a final shot (woops), we added balloons to the pole as well.  The tule gave it a really soft look.

Cupcakes for parties are so much easier, Miss 6 is so shy when all the attention in on her 🙂


We even had yellow food.  Fruit kebabs with rockmelon, pineapple and orange.  Popcorn, pastry cheese swirls, yellow and white marshmallows, grub lollies, lemon and passionfruit jelly cups, apricot balls, cheese crackers, shortbread biscuits…there were so many possiblilites.

Sorry, back to the lazy day…..We closed the blinds, made some popcorn and set out for an afternoon of relaxation.  After awhile i became fidgetyso I did some ironing 🙂  But still it was a lovely afternoon laughing away to the newly released Beverly Hills Chihuahua 2 (thankyou Disney for sending me a copy).  Nothing makes me happier than listening to my kids laugh, and they did just that all through this adorable movie.  I wish I could of just squeezed a cuddle out of one of those gorgeous little pups, they were just too cute!


Puppy mayhem turns the lives of newlywed Chihuahua parents, Papi andChloe, upside down when their playful puppies present one challenge after another. But, when their human owners find themselves in trouble, the tiny pups will stop at nothing to save them—because in good times and hard times, the family always sticks together. Papi, Chloe and the puppies embark on a heroic adventure, proving once again that big heroes come in small packages.

Everybody together….awww – how cute!

Playing with our new puppies is actually a big hit at the moment. 3 kids and 2 pups – the backyard is a huge mess – but everyones happy :O)

We spend most of our time keeping cool by the pool with iceblocks and watermelon wedges in our back yard . and it wears the kids out ! no complaints there !

Kathy Leonard February 25, 2011 - 5:47 AM

We love playing board games – it’s great to spend some time together without the TV!

RH February 25, 2011 - 6:14 AM

Our favourite family pass time has got to be heading down to the dog beach as a family and allowing both the kids and our dog to run wild.

Joy February 25, 2011 - 6:45 AM

Our new family past time has to be horse riding. Took the kids in the Christmas holidays and we all loved it!!!!

Shane February 25, 2011 - 6:54 AM

The party looks great!

We love pulling out all the Lego/ Duplo and seeing what exciting creations we can make.

Denise February 25, 2011 - 7:17 AM

I love your giveaways. Your afternoon of relaxing sounds just like what I do with my Grandchildren. They like nothing better than getting out the popcorn and snuggling down and all of us watching a movie.
The other favourite thing is when all the family is together big and little kids and we have a BBQ and sit around chatting.

Casey February 25, 2011 - 7:34 AM

It’s a little selfish but I love the car ride on the way to wherever we are going. I have my family in one spot and we have nothing else to focus on but each other and communicating. Love it!

Jess Cronin February 25, 2011 - 7:40 AM

we love to watch movies together too and we also enjoy going for long walks on our farm and sometimes we take a picnic lunch and spend the whole day together its wonderful!

Jemima February 25, 2011 - 7:45 AM

we love going for walks.
every evening we try and go for a walk down to the beach and have a play on the park. we have so much fun just all walking together.
craig and olivia always end up going into the bushes looking for lizards

Yvette Walker February 25, 2011 - 8:04 AM

A regular of ours on a Sunday morning is a bike ride around the lake then Yum Cha at our favourite Chinese. With 4 hungry boys, we are able to get a great selection of foods and all of them will eat practically anything!

Billie MacGinley February 25, 2011 - 8:17 AM

The one activity we do every week together without fail is our big walk around the wetlands. Time to just escape as a family and get back to nature. And of course we take our little pal Tim Tam also a chihuahua!

Alicia Ilievski February 25, 2011 - 8:43 AM

Our fav past time as a family is a trip to Max Brenner for “Chocolate dipped in Strawberries” My daughter has always called it that (rather than Strawberries dipped in chocolate) she knows it is incorrect but its so cute we all call it that now. I have some of the best ever photos.

Looove the party….great idea for the tulle…..think it might be tulle time this Easter.

nikke miller February 25, 2011 - 8:51 AM

My family loves the random long drive with picnic basket in the boot, we dont plan the trip we just get in the car and drive and see where the day takes us.. we have ended up in some really nice picnic spots, places we would never have been if we planned the trip.. the family love it!

Nicole Brown February 25, 2011 - 9:27 AM

Our favourite family pastime is setting of in the car on a Sunday and just heading somewhere for a picnic lunch….beach, or the park, craft or trash and treasure markets…We dont make plans, we just head off and always have a wonderful adventure…

Lou February 25, 2011 - 9:35 AM

What an awesome prize – my daughter would LOVE IT! We love cooking together and playing games and spending time at the beach and also sporting activities 🙂 Lots of stuff!


Leila February 25, 2011 - 10:53 AM

I love spending a family day together, starting with a breakfast of pancakes, getting dressed and packing the car to head off to the park so the kids can ride and we can all play, having a picnic/BBQ lunch there and then heading home to a lazy afternoon watching a movie or two before eating a simple dinner (like spaghetti bolognese) and then heading off to bed.

Kimberlee February 25, 2011 - 11:46 AM

Visiting hand made goodie markets around Perth is a hit with our young family 🙂

Mel February 25, 2011 - 1:55 PM

We love getting into the car and going exploring. There is so much to see and do, the possibilities are endless and most importantly we get to spend valuable time together as a family :).

mellie jane February 25, 2011 - 3:00 PM

love taking the kids to the beach for a swim and a play its just a short walk from home and they have so much fun.

Mandy Ferry February 25, 2011 - 4:15 PM

We love to swim. simple at that, we could go to the pool for hours and hours.

Such a joy that we do together.


Annette Walsh February 25, 2011 - 5:51 PM

we love our friday family movie night. we rent a great kids movie, make pizzas and popcorn and snuggle up together on the couch! Its great the kid movies these days are so much fun even for the adults 🙂

Bec February 25, 2011 - 6:56 PM

We have zoo membership so love going to the zoo together as a family!

Tam February 25, 2011 - 8:06 PM

One of our favourite pasttimes as a family would be doing the Sunday Drive thing! Whether it’s for an hour or the whole day we always try and go and explore the wonderful South West WA area that we live in. Despite growing up in the area, my husband and I cannot believe how much we still have left to explore! And during this horrible sticky weather we’ve had for what seems like weeks and weeks now, it’s just perfect (in the aircon hehe).

Melissa S February 25, 2011 - 8:36 PM

For us it would have to be playing trains. My husband and father-in-law are train buffs and it has rubbed off my son (3yrs). He loves playing with is Thomas & Friends train set and it is something we can all do together (even our 7 month old, who spends most of her time chewing on one of the track pieces).

Danielle February 26, 2011 - 1:31 AM

How cute :O)
At the moment our favourite way to spend time together is by cooking.. My Son who turned 6 the other day got an apron and some baking supplies so we’ve been whipping up cupcakes, biscuits, mini pizza’s and having a fun time laughing in the kitchen making a right mess! He really loves it, this weekend we are making more baked goods!

Amanda Gorton February 26, 2011 - 5:15 AM

My family and I all get involved when we share a home cooked meal together. We all have specific tasks and with the tv off it encourages us to talk. Laughter in conversation is my secret ingredient!

Michelle February 26, 2011 - 8:28 AM

We try and make Friday night family night when hubby is not working late. Have something quick to clean up after for dinner, and then play cards, a board game, wii bowling, or watch a suitable kid movie. The kids really love it!

Tracy Williams February 26, 2011 - 8:37 AM

We love going to the beach, it’s sad to think summer is ending, but a wonderful day going to the park and beach happens through all the seasons!

Emily February 26, 2011 - 3:19 PM

We love going for day trips as a family. We love to spend the time chatting in the car and watching our kids enjoy exploring and discovering new things and experiences.

Melanie Graham February 26, 2011 - 10:10 PM

We love to pack a picnic lunch and head up to the rain forest in Mt Tamborine, Mt Nebo or Mt Coot-tha. The kids love it and so do we.

Philippa Comerford February 26, 2011 - 11:39 PM

Each summer when we visit grandma everyone picks fresh mulberries from her huge trees…a decades old tradition that I now share with my children.

Sarah February 28, 2011 - 6:54 AM

Our favourite family past time is our trips to our local swimming cente. Just hanging around in the water, having fun and everyone enjoying themselves. Then home with some very tired little bodies!

Kirrily March 1, 2011 - 8:17 PM

Just playing with the kids – the games change every week or so, but the time spent together is still the same.
