Alli's Party!

SORRY ABOUT THE PICS GOING AWAY SOMEWHERE IN BLOGGERLAND, I'M NOT SURE WHAT WAS GOING ON WITH THIS BLOG, BUT NOT TO WORRY ANNMARIE, YOU CAN SEE YOUR HARD WORK UNDER THE SLIDESHOW I POSTED WEDNESDAY AFTERNOON :)


Well it finally happened...Alli had her party and isn't it such a relief once its's all over with? I had to change the date because of a wedding and I was afraid I didn't give people enough notice, not only that but I had a lot to get started in less than a weeks time. So I'm cleaning at about 9:00 pm Friday night in anticipation for the party at 11:00 am the next day...AnnMarie stops by to pick something up and there I am stressed out and tired trying to figure out just how I'm going to get it all done. You guys, the girl cleaned Landon's room, baked cupcakes, and then sat down and started sewing. Boy was I so so so greatful! THANK YOU ANNMARIE!!

I feel for those of you that don't have family close by that can help you with these party things, because when I woke up Saturday morning, I took it so slow, just made sure everything was in it's place and I didn't stress or worry about anything, it was perfect!

This is the girl on birthday party morning, all excited, asking every thirty minutes if people were on their way.

They made their own pizzas each with their own style, some with just a few drops of sauce, some with pepporoni piled high, some with a circle of pepporionis and some that didn't even want to make their pizzas :0)

They then decorated their cupcakes however they wanted. The party really did flow very smoothly and quick, it was maybe one and a half hours long, it was great! Some factors that made it the success that it was, was the amount of kids invited, any more than this would have gotten a bit crazy, umm... what else, oh, the fact that family wasn't there, I will say it was very sad not having our family there to celebrate, its one of the things that I love, my entire family got together for everyones birthdays from kids to adults at my grandmas house and I loved it. But its so hectic having so many people there, and not everyone gets to spend time with the birthday kid as they would like, so this was perfect!

Thank you for celebrating with us and also, thank you for all of the help any way it came, sewing, picture taking, kid coraling, and cleaning especially <--you gotta love that! :0)

What a great party! Thanks for sharing the pictures. :)
Ethan loves his apron and chef hat. It seems like every time I look up, he is wearing them!

Shell, that was a great party!! Very creative, organized, and quick. I must say, it was nice not having a hundred (or so) people there. Birthdays usually do just wear you out because they're so busy, but this one was very laid back & smooth. GREAT JOB!!
