1. Make it longer, it was too short for me to sit and talk to anyone.
2. Either make it all at activities and not a meal, or start off with the meal so that i can enjoy the party.
3. do it on the years that we aren't doing a birthday party for Boo
4. just keep having fun. We are creating memories for our kids. I stopped for a minute one day why I care about that and why that is important. We want them to remember childhood as a happy time. we want them to remember our love for them and that we have fun together. And it is our memories that will bring a smile and warmth in our hearts when life gets hard our sad.
Anyway here's the party
Fairy god mother and Doc McStuffins
My neighbor brought this craft and it was perfect, the kids LOVED it.
The food table beginning to get full of all the yummy treats people brought
Wrap your daddy up like a mummy:
Donuts on a string
so fun, so messy
We also had other games they could play at their leisure: Spider tag (basically line tag), black cat alley but it was really a spiderweb obstacle course that ran between our fence and behind the shed and trampoline, we had the jumping spider nest (trampoline), Witches hat ring toss, and bat flying races.
