Minnie Mouse and any basketball athlete would be proud of the party that Nini and Cici threw for their friends last weekend (ok I threw)! I wish I could have captured more of the fun, but isn't 50 photos enough? The focus of the party was to do crafts and play basketball, throw in some food, cake and presents and we were good for two scheduled hours and one more for friends that wanted to stay.
The crafts were set-up in the living room on a card table using a couple folded chairs and the piano bench. I copied those cute minni mouse shaped shirts cutting out black felt mouse head and tying polka-dotted ribbon. The girls glued on the shirt and then the ribbon was sewn to the shirt. The boys made foam hats and a few other crafts thrown in to keep everyone busy.
Leanne, Natalie, Kathy were all mums who ended up doing their child's crafts while the kids went to play! Sara, centered in the middle, moved here until Christmas from BC and I hired her to help at the craft table! But, according to this picture - there were enough adults anyway!
The girl's ended the evening by playing basketball outside and opening presents. I took a lot more photos, but most didn't make it because of all those other kids in the photo. Our favorite photo has to be this one:
Rolfe was definitely an invited guest at the birthday party -what do you think of his Minnie Mouse ears? Pretty cute, eh?!
Daddy's 39th Birthday!
I'm sure that Cici was checking to make sure that hers was pink! That face of hers was so serious, it cracks me up! Poor thing, probably was hoping for a fancy dress! So sweet! She does like it and loves to get up early she says when every thing is quiet to play it.
