Minnie Mouse's birthday party

She kept saying that all day. This little girl had the greatest party on the planet and she was so ecstatic. It was wonderful and a joy to do it for her because she was so good and so happy. We had a costume party for the kids. That was fun. Here is Minnie with Curious George, who went to daycare with her.

It took me forever to try and get all the kids in one area for a shot with Witchy Woman Granny.
And maybe this should be reversed and I shoudl be the witch and mom the nutty candy. My costume has a toddler-sized chocolate handprint on the back shoulder. Wonder where that came from?

I love that one curl. Here she is opening presents. She was such a gracious child. She was genuinely excited at every gift she received and giddily opened presents and offered thank yous. I was very proud.

Some of the presents were as big as she is. Lots of baby dolls, Barbies and Disney Princesses.

She was loving the cake and kept trying to blow out the candles before I could get my camera ready. I had to put my hand up in front of her mouth to keep her from blowing them out before we started singing!

Here she is with LabKat, who was helping her with the gift from Gadfly

We had too many kids to count in attendance.

And the trampoline was a big hit.

The light saber duels were also a big hit. *pun intended* Find it amusing for the Lt. from TNG to be fighting the grim reaper with a light saber.

Granny and Papa left a little early because mom was getting tired.

We rounded out the evening with bubbles from the Buzz Lightyear bubble machine she got for her birthday.

Finally ran out the last of the stragglers about 11ish and put the kids to bed. Both boys had overnight guests, so it was a busy household. More pics of the boys to come.

    I was totally stressed out and of course I forgot to put out all the food, we didn't play the games in a nice orderly fashion as I had hoped ... but, everyone had fun and no one seemed to go hungry. So, it was good. Plus, that baby, ahem, big girl had the greatest time ever. At bedtime, she told me and dad both that she wanted to do that again.
