Circus/Carnival Birthday Party
The party was wonderful. As crazy as it was to put together, it had a very laid-back vibe in the end. The kids had a blast. The grown-ups had a good time. My friend Wendi, who has an in-home bakery called Sweet Sugarlicious, made a beautiful cake and cookies. She also worked her magic with the face paint! The hubby bravely shaved off his beard and donned some clown makeup. He was a great clown, but the makeup burned his face, so the clown only lasted about half an hour!
Big Sis received many wonderful gifts, including a ton of books. My father gifted her with not one, but two cameras: one of his old digital cameras and a Fuji Instax Mini. The Instax has been a great deal of fun. I scanned some of my favorite instant photos from the evening of the party.
So there you have it. Our circus/carnival birthday party. Little Sis has a birthday in November (Raggedy Ann!), but she's shy and her parties are smaller. Thank goodness. Now all I want to do is sleeeeeeeeeeeep.
