Sometime, when I have a little time, I'll have to share some of my other creations with you. I usually start by perusing the internet for a cake that I can do. But some themes in the past have included a Nemo Cake, a beach ball, Lightening McQueen and Hello Kitty. This time around it was a ballerina theme, so I found a ballet slipper cake.
I also made marshmallow fondant for the cake and the cookies. It was the first time I had ever worked with it and it was so easy!!
I was able to prepare all the food on Saturday which included homemade salsa, a cheeseball, cheeseballs (per Karis' request, they are like Cheetos), cake and cookies. And one of my Czech friends made and brought garlic cheese bread.
The party started and turned out great. I think so anyway. We snacked, the kids played, we did a "pin the jewel on the crown" game, then out came the pinata. Some friends gave it to us to use (it was the pull the ribbon kind). Luckily they didn't care to have it back because after two ribbon pulls the candy came tumbling out, the top ribbon broke and the kids went flying to the ground. It was absolutely crazy!
Karis opened her presents,
and then blew out the candles on her cake. We had a lot of fun!
Brennan having a good ole time with the punch (strawberry ice cream & Sprite). Silly boy!
The house was a wreck! There was pinata pieces, candy wrapper, food, wrapping paper and various other things scattered throughout the house. But of course, I was off to get my hubby. So the clean up had to wait. Having gone to bed at 3 am and waking up at 7:30 am to get our kids I was exhausted. And it took me ALL day to get the house clean. I even took a picture of the junk I swept up off the kids floor. Ha! It was so thick with filth I couldn't even vacuum until I swept.
