Amelia's Birthday Party

I am not much of a party person. We grew up with very plain parties, when we got one. Also, I am too lazy to get my bum in gear before the event. The cake nearly put me over the edge. Luckily, we had a package of crepe paper and some tissue paper for stuffing gift bags for decorating. Justin's grandma gave us a pretty cake stand when we married. I used it for the second time in 5 years! LOL. We invited over two families to join us in cake and ice cream. Of course the Hayley's came over! I invited over the Ryder family because Amelia just adores Talyah and Kyrah their two girls. Plus Phillip is destined to be little Romain and Cydahlee's best friend since they are about 10 days apart in age. It was a bit crazy, loud, and a lot of fun. The kids made so much noise in the basement we were afraid to go down there. I was relieved they mostly just made noise! We sang Happy Birthday and then opened presents. Deb Ryder's son, Gavin, also has a birthday on the same day. We ate some cake, sipped some ice cream, and drank some juice. Amelia was a bit overwhelmed by all the present opening action. Mainly, she recieved underwear, Princess dresses, some Christmas toy clearance I picked up, some princess lip makeup from Ella, a pig from the Ryders, dress ups from Grandma Debbie, and Strawberry Shortcake stuff from Grandma and Grandpa Call.

Justin modeled Amelia's princess dress for us! We had a nice post birthday melt down before bed. Bruce and Diana left early Monday morning. I was a little tired so put on a long movie for Amelia and took a nap. Phew.

It was a fun party! I too was relieved to find the basement pretty darn clean considering 8 kids were let loose down there! The cake was awesome! Maybe I'll borrow the cake stand for Ella's party...then you can say it's been used twice! :)
