We are all grateful for the wonderful lasting memory our children have when they have a party with their friends. We try to forget all the planning and prep work not to mention everything you forgot or should have done differently once you get there, but we do it regardless. All those who know me know that I don't like to over do things but at the same time throw in a few cute things to make it cute.
Miss Kate Rose wanted a Jasmine party so I of course went to Disney printed up a free Jasmine greeting card which I left blank and wrote in the info myself. Then my other Jasmine was the cake. I have a wonderful friend Crystal who free handed the Jasmine and decorated it with 5 little kids watching( one was actually crying and hanging on her leg). Kate loved it and though I got to the park late and we didn't get the grill started as soon as planned I had a lot of help and group of very patient friends who just happened to be fun to sit around and talk to while we waited for those darn coals to warm up. (we also had a good breeze going which made for a lovely evening, just not great for coals)
All went well and we ended just as it was getting dark. I hope all those kids slept well after being loaded with sugar. I was exhausted, but again we come to the conclusion that it was worth it for the kids.
I'd also like to add a comment to my last post. That stinking little hamster bit me last night when I tried to get her out. I WAS BLEEDING! I won't be extracting it anymore. New job for dad.

Hey I am glad to hear the party was such a hit! Sorry we couldn't be there, but Scott had a random spur of the moment idea to go to Lego Land with the kids. He thought of this Wenesday and we left Thursday..yikes crazy I know..but we had a blast! The boys were totally excited! I just love the picture of Kate holding her hamster..with such joy on her face.
