Hannah's 9th birthday party was Sunday afternoon. I really didn't do a good job on pictures because it was a very hands on party for me. I had 15 little girls that I had to keep busy and contained in the garage. Since it was an art party and was bound to be messy, I set up tables in the garage. I was rushing to get the party set up after Mass. Between chasing Drew around and everything I totally forgot to take "before" pictures. Drew ended up in toddler "jail" AKA his highchair so I could get stuff done since my equally perfectionist husband suddenly had to rake leaves in the front yard.
|It was a simple spread...the ever popular cheese balls, grapes, and a veggie tray. Juice boxes and a pallet cake too!|
|These are paint brush rice crispy treats for favors. Bad pic, because I was rushing. The paint brushes had red, blue, green, and purple "paint" on them.|
|These aprons were also favors.|
Face painting was first with free painting while they waited their turn. I had a wonderful mommy help me with this. I wish I had gotten a picture of all the Sacred Hearts of Jesus and Immaculate Hearts of Mary that we painted. I drew a bunch of samples on a page and let them choose. Those were the most popular.
Next project was to finish a half drawing.
Then we did the Blindfolded Masterpiece Game. Everyone took turns being blindfolded and drew a piece of the picture of Hannah. For example, someone drew a nose, next an ear. The girls got quite a kick out of it. Lots of high pitch squealing.
Then we had snacks, divided into teams, and played Pictionary. After that was cake time!
Then I got the question. "Mrs. Smith, are we going to be in the garage the whole time?" I thought making it to 1 hour and 45 minutes was pretty good to keep them busy enough to stay in the garage. Present time!
I am so happy that my daughters are so blessed to have such great friends. Every gift was so thoughtful and she was so grateful for the gifts. She even got a new pair of fuzzy pajama pants to replace the high water ones she wears constantly.
