Birthday Party Fun (with sugar)!

30 Nov


Miss H has been invited to a lot of really fun parties in the last few years and we attended one at a local candy shop last weekend! Miss H was thrilled there was no chocolate involved. Also, it marked a first for us- I just dropped her off at the event. The party was at Sugar Cube in Old Town and according to Miss H, they played a ‘life size’ version of Candy Land and ‘she was a piece.’ Plus, they did the candy limbo and made catepillars out of gummy lifesavers and licorice.

Miss H might have eaten more licorice than she used for her crafts.



Miss H has also added this to her list of places for her next birthday party 🙂


Pizza Party!

26 Mar

I debated about what to do this year for Miss H’s birthday but finally decided on a ‘Make Your Own Pizza Party’ at Uno’s in Kingstowne. I knew Kerry might be still recovering from surgery so I did not want any kind of activity where we had to chase Miss H around. So, knowing how much she likes to help me cook, I thought she would have a great time making her own pizza. Well, it was a hit and everyone had so much fun!

We ended up having 13 kids and 23 adults for an afternoon pizza party! The staff was great and the mayhem was kept to a minimum. The kids loved being able to add the toppings to their pizza and enjoyed decorating the chef hats.

Aunt Leigh made the gift bags and Treats by Erica provided delicious strawberry and vanilla cupcakes plus chocolate covered marshmallows to take home.I think our adult friends enjoyed the pizza and sweets as much as Miss H’s friends 🙂

Miss H enjoyed the party so much that the first thing she asked on Sunday morning was, ‘Can we have another party today?’

I will post more pictures later today!
