Grace’s birthday party went GREAT! We had 9 kids there (Kaylee, Kaleb, Emma, Andrew, Ashton, Tristan, Boone, Garrett, Cale, and miscellaneous adults. About 25 total I think. She had a blast playing with her friends and was so happy they came to her house!
Miraculously, the cake turned out great too. I found the idea in Family Fun Magazine. I was worried because I’d never attempted anything that ambitious but it turned out pretty good 🙂 I also made school bus cupcakes. I didn’t get started until 8 pm Friday night and I went to bed at midnight but it was worth it!
Jan and Kelly came from Nebraska around 5 and got the tail end of the party and spent the night with us. We were thrilled to have them! They had come up to visit Kortney in Columbia then were heading to Nashville to see Jamie and Jody on Sunday.
Mom spent the night too and Dad, Susan and Mama Rice all stayed for dinner. Bryon fixed a gourmet feast of grilled lamb chops, creamed spinach, roasted new potatoes and crab cakes. MMMMMM!
Grace got a TON of stuff! Way too much but she was thrilled. Dad gave her a 10 gallon aquarium and we went Sunday and got some goldfish. She likes it a lot. I think it’s pretty cool too.
She’ll be the big 3 tomorrow. I’m taking the leftover goodie bags (there was just the right amount left!) to school along with some store bought cupcakes. I’m baked out for a while! I made goody bags from brown paper lunch bags and filled them with a box of crayons, a tub of playdough, a pencil and a glue stick. I think the kids liked them.
It was a great day and a really fun time. It was a good Mom day 🙂
