We Survived the Party

We had Kamryn's party yesterday! This was the 1st time we had done an at-home party, we had been opting for the out-of-home ones to save on mess and clean up (yes we're lazy like that LOL). But it went really well, we had 10 kids and our 3.

We started of painting some flower pots from Michael's (I heart Michael's). I'm glad at the last minute I said hey lets do this in our teeny tiny kitchen as there was paint everywhere. We squeezed all 11 kids around our old plastic patio table and it worked.

Then it was time for food the usual party fare of hot dogs, cucumbers, carrots, pretzels and of course cake.
(Ok I guess no more pictures?? Blogger is being mean)

Next of course came present time. Kamryn while she loves getting presents, I mean who doesn't? She just doesn't have a high excitement level for opening them, she goes thru the motions and does it but looks like she wants to be anywhere else but doing the "opening" (this goes way back LOL)

We all headed outside and planted a little flower in each pot, the kids loved it. It was a very quick 2 hours, at one point while they were eating Bruce was like they are so "quiet" well 10 minutes later when this mostly girl group was yelling and screaming I looked at him and said "anything else you have to say??" He was like "how do John and Kate Plus 8 do it"?

It was fun. Now we have 2 more birthdays and we're done til next year.

The pots and flowers were such a great idea. If my Love Bug didn't have a birthday in late fall, I'd save that away for later! Maybe we'll have a third child one day...
