Party!

The party is over and I think everyone had fun. The food was great, yet simple and child friendly. We had hamburgers, tomato salad, cucumber salad, corn chips, watermelon wedges, molded peppermint ice cream, vanilla ice cream and petit fours.

The first guests to arrive were the girl friends who were shy. To get them away from scary adults, I let them go to Princess' room to open their groovy gift purses. Inside the purse was an assortment of cool girl stuff like stick on body jewelry, lip gloss, bracelets, etc. Everyone decorated themselves and the party was on a roll. Once everyone showed up, we ate, opened presents, and broke the pinata. My husband cleaned while I visited. Now, I am sitting, exhausted, in a heap.

I vow never to save so much cleaning and preparation for the day of the party. I vow never to save so much cleaning and preparation for the day of the party. I vow never to save so much cleaning and preparation for the day of the party.

But, we were a success!

Hurray for another successful celebration! I promise to remind you next time to not wait to clean until the last minute, if you promise to do the same for me! ;)

I read at Redneck Mother that she doesn't clean for company because she doesn't want her family to think that the company is more important than they. I had never thought of it that way. I am crushed. In my mind and heart, I cleaned because I wanted my family to be proud of their house and their surroundings. Do you think my family could think the company is more important?
