2 down....3 to go

Taylor's party was a success. I love planning for the kids parties and getting ready. It's a lot of work but so worth it when they come down in the morning and their faces just light up when they see how the house has been decorated etc. The preparations all started on Thursday with making cupcakes and decorating which took about 7 hours to do. A late night that night and then the decorating on Friday night. Which was another late night. Thankfully I have a great friend who came to my rescue to help me out. I would have been blowing balloons forever it seems. Thanks Andrew for your help. House decorated complete with a ballon arch, streamers, red carpet, balloons everywhere. Taylor was very excited. She hasn't stopped thanking me for everything. I guess I underestimated how appreciative a 5 year old could be. As the kids arrived they got a crown and a wand or sword. They had fun making their own pizzas, decorating goblets, drinking Shirley Temples (they were all so excited to have pop), cake eating, pony riding and present opening. Oh and I can't forget the sword and wand fighting. Ethan asked me if they could prince and princess. I was informed how it's played. The boys(princes) play fight with the sword and the girls(princess) boss them around. Too funny.
Chris' birthday is tomorrow so I had a few people over at night to celebrate. I think a good time was had by all, Hey guys!
Now on to getting everything for Spencer's (2 parties. 1 kid and then cake with the whole fam. Something I did for the other 2.) and then Quinten's.
I'll leave you with some pictures of the fun times.

There were kids at the party but I haven't asked permission to post there pictures.
