I have become a big fan of the "do something big with just a few friends" versus the "do any kind of party with large numbers of kids". It is working for us I would say. The most difficult thing is for kids to decide who the "few" will be. Anyway, the party participants met us where J got her ears pierced and then we went to Build a Bear. If you have read my blog regularly, you know that I get anxiety at malls or other places that have lots of people and/or it is crowded/trafficy to park. ICK. Well, it all went really well. First of all, one of the moms came with me and she was so fun and helpful!
The little hearts that they are holding actually go inside the bear. They had a little friendship "moment" with the hearts... a safer way to be "blood sisters".
Then, to our house for dinner, cake and ice cream and a slumber party.
Cute and nice kids-they even cleaned up after themselves... Off to early bed for me tonight though!
