We were uber-busy this past week. I’m surprised I didn’t collapse before Sunday. But God is good. He held me together right up until yesterday. Then, I was down for the count. But, like one of those bouncy punchy bopper thingies (I really can’t think of the name of that thing to save my life! Anyone???) , I’m back up and at em’ today.
We celebrated Sweetgirl’s 5th birthday on Friday. Her party was on Saturday, and can we all just agree that ten 4 and 5-year-olds hyped up on cake and dancing like they’re 12 is enough to push any parent over the edge? Can we?!
I am going to try to just hit the highlights here, but my favorite was, by far, Sweetgirl’s blue hair. It was just fun! And so… her! We used a product called Hair Chalk. Have you ever? Me neither. But, I’m here to inform. And entertain. But for now, inform. So, Hair Flairs Color Chalk is what we used. It goes on very easily by rubbing it directly onto the hair to be colored. Lessons learned? 1) Wear rubber gloves. 2) Do not allow the hair to touch ANYTHING in your house for the next few hours. (Let’s just say that there are a few places on the walls and couches that are a lovely shade of aqua. I’m going to pretend they aren’t there until they go away on their own. Good strategy?)
And then, on Saturday, we partied like it was 1999. Only, it was 2013. And the party people were the Under Six Crowd. Mercy…
The Gammy and The Grampa had driven up for he occasion and I think I can state with some level of certainty that by party’s end, we all just wanted to lay down where we were and sleep until 2015.
But, there was leftover cake to be had. And we do not ever waste cake in this house. Indeed. It’s actually considered illegal in this family. According to law #8 section 22 of the Missindeedy Family Laws and Codes… Oh, kidding! But, for realz, we don’t waste cake. Someone worked hard to make this thing of beauty.
Anyone hungry? We have approximately half of a half sheet cake left over. And I refuse to eat another
3 pieces in one sitting piece. Let it never be said that I don’t know how to share.
