Naomi's Princess Party! (5 yrs old)

This is the cake that consumed my life. (alright a few days of my life) Naomi wanted a princess party so when we saw this cake set I thought I could figure it out. Why I thought that I don't know. Let me put the disclaimer out that I am not a cake maker, nor do I have a talent in this field. So I stressed myself out over this silly cake for a bunch of 4 and 5 year olds. Needless to say it came together, not as well as I had hope. I was literally putting the sprinkles on the cone tops while kids were arriving. So all the fun details like flowers and stuff didn't even come to pass. I don't know why I thought I would have a few hours of time to decorate a cake with a new born, a 2 yr old and a 5 yr old at home. The kids liked it and it tasted good. I guess that's all that matters.
Naomi blowing the candles out.

Even though it took forever to make it took minutes to destroy. Again why do we do these things to ourselves?

This was a really cool pinata. For those of us who feel it is actually dangerous to place a baseball bat in the hands of a 5 year old, blindfold them and let them start swinging than this is the pinata for you. It has a bunch of curling ribbon at the bottom and one is the special ribbon that releases a trap door where all the candy is stored. So the kids line up and take turns pulling their string. It's safe, it's fun, and they can see what's going on.

One of the games that we played was the infamous egg on the spoon game. But this game was with plastic eggs and a bean bag egg inside. The egg is designed to break open when it hits the floor. Great Target find. It was fun.

Musical balloon. Instead of them fighting over a chair we passed a balloon around. When the music stops whoever had the balloon was out.

Present time!

Princess Naomi had a great time with great friends!

And you wonder why Grandpa has a bad back. 3 of the grandkids got their piggy back ride from Grandpa who came up for the party.

Ashes, ashes we all fall down. Or his back gave out? No I think this is where Malachi and him were wrestling.

So sorry Bailee missed it she is so mad at me. I totally forgot to tell Scott that he needed to take her there and by the time I remembered at work the party had passed. Sorry I am a bad mom. But it looks like she had a great time and your cake turned out. This weekend was crazy.
