Party Fun

We had Emily's birthday party yesterday at her dance studio. Which meant NO HOUSE CLEANING OR YARDWORK in preparation; YIPPEE!! I won't go into the details of some of the beforehand drama, but let's just say that neighbors and a brother stepped in to help get things squared away and the show was on...

Here's the party-goers (minus one, who wouldn't come in for the picture)

Here's the cupcakes I decorated to match the theme:

There was lots of dancing (they got a 45 minute dance class) and twirling and leaping and whatnot (ignore the blur, those girls were FAST!)

And then we sat down for cupcakes and goodies (each girl got a cupcake and then got to load their plate with cookies, candies, crackers, etc)

Then Emily opened presents

Then we handed out goody bags and packed up to come home. I think it went really well overall, and Emily LOVED it (which is the most imporant part). I could be very tempted to never ever have another party at home ever again!!!!!

How fun! I love the idea of not having to clean the house or do yardwork. I'm going to have to remember that idea for my kids. :0)

How cool was that party! And, the no cleaning / gardening thing was a huge bonus! But it's not like you went overboard... Some parents are crazy with what they do for a birthday party! This was a really great idea. Plus, I'll bet she'll remember that for a long time. I'm impressed.
