What rhymes with "Mall and Coats Smartie"?


...Hall and Oats Party!

A few months ago Aric decided to introduce our kids to the smooth sounds of the 80's pop duo. I'm still not sure what prompted this but I have a feeling it has to do with Aric's goofy sense of humor and you tube. He found some old Hall and Oats videos and showed them to the girls. The girls thought they were so funny. I have found myself saying "If you get all your work done you can watch a Hall and Oats video..." not even joking.
So even though we didn't own any of their music I would hear both Maya and Eden singing "Kiss on my List and Maneater".
A couple of weeks ago I was talking to the girls about what we should do for Aric's birthday. Around here we always have a theme, This year Eden came up with a "Hall and Oats" theme. So here's what we did...
This is the Hall and Oats mobile I made.

And this is the very special Hall and Oats cake I made.

So I totally missed a photo op while Aric opened up his presents. The girls very excited to give him their presents. Aric has a major sweet tooth so my mom took the girls out to buy some of Aric's favorite treats. Maya wrote on all his little packages, one said "old man pills"...they were M&M's. So cute! The best present was the Hall and Oats greatest hits album that I got for him. He and the girls have been enjoying it thoroughly. Maybe I'll recreate the moment and take a picture tonight...
So I've been kind of bummed that I missed the present opening photo op, This picture makes me feel better...at least I didn't miss this precious little moment.

So that's how you have a Hall and Oats party. Feel free to use these fabulous ideas for your next Hall and Oats party.
*Oh and Tia Ana I know you are dying right now...weren't you hoping to marry Oats? I think Uncle Al resembles Hall a little more than Oats...I'll keep my eye out for a curly black wig and black moustache.

Ok, the best part about this post is when I opened your page and heard "You make my dreams come true" AWESOME. I loved Hall and Oats. That was hilarious.

You are seriously the best party person E.V.E.R.

Don't you want to move down to warmer weather so we can party together sometimes? :)

(BTW- my twins are totally rockin out to your music!)

You and I should start a party planning business. What a great idea-I love it! Camden is seriously adorable! Go RED SOX-I missed the opening game.

THAT. IS. AWESOME. You are hilarious!

So the fact that I have oodles and oodles of Hall and Oats on my Ipod and listen to it proudly makes me feel like a member of the fan club family. Little did I know the extent of your admiration. Very smart move to teach the ladies the wonders of H&O from a young age! Totally cool idea!

You are always so creative. You need to write one of those idea books:D

Mrs Ana said...

What can I say? I'm a huge Hall & Oats fan and yes I'm jealous I never got a Hall & Oats party. Maybe next year. What a fabulous Idea!

P.S. Did you get my message about your friend Mike Sampson? I'm pretty sure I saw him on GMA this morning. So funny! He's a law-breaker wow!

AMY said...

What?! How can you say that's not a great birthday tribute... he go 2 posts! Lucky guy.

What a cute pic of Camden.


PS Tell Aric I think his music style is beginning to struggle. :)
