Princess's 6th Birthday Party
It was so very muddy outside, I didn't let Princess wear her crown (thanks Amanda!)
The rain stopped just before the party started.
I set up to have everyone inside, or at least the food...
I am so tired of it raining half way through and having to run everything inside.
Farmer Dad set up the borrowed tent outside and the tables and chairs, he forgot to
put the flowers out there,
or any of the "snack" foods, but oh well.As Willie sings..."there's nothing I can do about it now...".
The menu consisted of :
Hummus and crackers
A variety of heirloom tomatoes (fresh from the garden)
with fresh mozzarella and olive oil
Goat cheese with fig sauce and crackers
Chips and salsa
Fresh fruit (including some figs)
Roasted Veggie sandwiches
Roasted Pork Loin (with apples and fig)
Mac n cheese
Olives and cheese
Fresh Italian bread
Cupcakes (vanilla and chocolate)
Dried and fresh fruit for desert
Unfortunately, I did not get one picture of any of the food,
the gift bags,or most of the goings on.
My niece (and Goddaughter) Amanda helped keep the kids
somewhat organized decorating mini pumpkins,
and painting sun catchers in Halloween themes.
Our good friend Miss Diana once again shared her incredible talents
and painted all the kids faces (or arms)much to their delight!
The kids decorated their cupcakes while they waited their turn, or after they were done
Some also made some "macaroni" necklaces
They also spent a lot of time playing in the yard.
I should have handed out sample sizes of Shout as a party favor.(Muddy!)
Every child left clutching a mini pumpkin in their hands
and with a bit of our corner of the Garden State spread across bottoms
and big smiles upon their faces. ;-)
Thanks to both of these incredible women who helped make the party such a success!
After everyone left, Princess began the "opening of the gifts" process...
Wow! She got so many wonderful gifts...thank you all.
Here she tries out her Hannah Montana Dance Mat (from her "sweet prince") with her friend Peanut.
Thanks to Peanut's Mom, Naomi for helping to put some other stuff together for us.;-)
Thank you all for the Birthday Wishes..it was a busy crazy weekend and you
all played a part in making it a very Happy 6Th Birthday for Princess.
Special Note to "Bean"....
I just read your comment, and cannot believe you were so close to me and I missed
out on meeting up with you!!! Had I known you were going to be in the area, I would have
met you for coffee at the very least!!! We were 10-15 minutes away!!!
I am so very disappointed!! :-(
