Birthday Brinley

Yesterday morning, I put on a small birthday party for Brinley, except that it wasn't small. I believe there were about 15 kids running around my little house. It went smoothly and Brinley had the greatest time, so i can't complain.
Thursday night, i got everything ready so that I wouldn't have to wake up terribly early. I made all the kids goodie bags with their names on them so thatthey wouldn't get mixed up, for the most part, it worked. We had little crowns for each of them too. (Gotta love the dollar store!) Brinley's birthday cake didn't get decorated until morning...I was just really, really tired. I'm not a cake decorater, but Brinley thought it was beautiful and it tasted way better than store bought.

Lots of kids produce lots of presents. Which she LOVES and wouldn't go anywhere with me without taking a few of them with her...or to bed. Since it is still too cold to be outside, the kids hit the pinata in our basement. This picture is really embarassing. I have way too much stuff still sitting in boxes, i haven't even unpacked half of my framed pictures...I am such a slacker, but...the kids had fun and could not break the dang thing open. What do they make these pinata's out of? I remeber back when I was younger, much younger, that by the time it got to the 3rd or 4th kid, the next ones only got to hit it once just so that everyone got a chance. Fifteen kids hit this thing and not a dent. I finally knocked it's head off.
I love trick candles!
All those kids, eating cake and icecream in my living room.
Opening gifts...loved it!

Thank you to all the kids that came. Brinley loved it and all the gifts!

Ethan had such a great time at Brinley's party! Thanks so much for inviting him (and letting him stay late!). You are a trooper for having so many kids around--I thought 6 was a zoo!
