The Birthday Bash
I have finally finished digging myself out from under the mounds of chocolate and piles of candy wrappers. Let me just say, it was quite a party! For those of you who may just be tuning in, we had a chocolate-themed birthday party for my eleven-year-old daughter. You can see from the pictures, that there was quite a lot of chocolate! In fact, when the parents showed up to drop off their kids, they couldn't believe their eyes. "It really is a chocolate party!" they said.
A couple of parents actually looked a little concerned about it, so I had to show them the vegetable tray. "See," I said. "We even have some healthy stuff."
They looked at me skeptically.
Needless to say, not one vegetable got eaten, but the girls had a great time. I found out that they are all experts at the blindfolded candy guessing contest. The girls had to identify the candy just by taste, and not one girl made a mistake. Unbelievable!
The next morning when I came downstairs, I found five girls stuffing their faces with candy.
"Hi, Mom!" they said.
"Nice breakfast," I said.
"This is the best!" one girl said. "Can we live here?"
Yeah. Just what I need. Five more daughters!
