Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhh no more Princess

Birthday Princess Jessica

The day started off great. Thankfully we had perfect weather. After all the children showed up, so did Snow White.

One of my favorite parts of the days was when Snow White showed up and Jessica said she wanted to see Cinderella. We had a feeling no matter which princess showed up, she would ask for a different princess. Snow White was great, she face painted and hung out with the kids giving the parents time to talk.

Then it was pinata time. I decided to buy a pinata online from the Oriental Trading company. I wanted a dragon so that we could "slay the dragon". The Oriental Trading Company must make their pinatas out of concrete.

Not only did we break the pinata stick, (where half of it flew into the crowd of kids and about poked an eye out) then it broke a golf club! Finally Mr. Nance took it upon on himself to rip apart the pinata with his hands. Ridiculous!

As the children scooped up their candy you could hear the parents saying;
Atomic Fireballs?
Jaw breakers?

Oops, when I bought pinata candy I didn't think to really look at what I was buying. I guess buying choking hazards for a group of 3 year olds was not the best idea.

The parents stayed amd goofed around with the kids. This is "the trio" Jess, Chloe and Sienna.

It was a great party but tons of work. Next year a family trip to the beach might have to suffice.

Ha ha! That's funny about the Pinata! My very favorite movie scene is in "Parenthood" where they can't get the pinata to break and Steve Martin has to get out a chain saw. So funny! And happy birthday Princess Jessica!

Hey - do you have a palm tree etched in your door? I noticed it in one of the pics... I LOVE it!!

Happy Birthday Jess! Looks like a great party. And, Jess sounds like how I was as a child. But, where is so and so? Too cute. Glad it went well.
