My baby turns 6April 16, 2007
My daughter had a fabulous birthday party yesterday. I tend to go a bit overboard with parties – so we decided to have a party at our local rec center. They have a fabulous gymnastics room equiped with floor level trampoline, foam block pit, all kinds of mats and toys, a zipline and they blow up a huge inflatable slide – carnival style. We had 15 kids there – 6 boys 9 girls. They got to play in the gymnastics room for an hour and then we went to our party room for an hour. It was a hello kitty party – equipped with sparkly hello kitty shirt from Target and a sparkly HK tierra.

So. . . this year, thanks to a friend (can’t remember who), I set my daughter up in a chair with an empty chair next to her. I drew names one at a time and that child got to get their present and go sit next to her while she opened it. Everyone else stayed seated. It was fabulous. Oh – and here’s the tower of pastel cupcakes:
