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!
