Space Party

The big space birthday bash was a hit.  I heard my niece who is four going on five say, "that was the best day ever".  And one of Jac's friends who came to the party said, "that was the best birthday party".   Yay!  It was a lot of fun, but oh it went by so fast!   I often say that for events in our lives we should hire in a photog to capture the moments so that we can really be in the moment and not worry about a camera.  Regardless, here are some of the highlights of the party.

We had blue and black balloons, with black table clothes, stars and balloons everywhere! 

The solar system was centered around the kitchen, of course.  Doesn't the world revolve around me?

Take me to your leader.

My friend Kerrie gave me her super awesome cake recipe, my friend Magen helped me come up with the idea, I baked the cake and made the sketch and my sister Daphne decorated it!  The cake was delicious and ended up being very cute.

The first Pinata of the household went over very well.  Jac was a bit timid, but hit it nicely.  Mia wasn't timid but her wild swings missed which upset her.  So she only took one turn.

We had a "moon" rock hunt in the basement.  All of the moon rocks had things that you would need or find on the moon in them and some space candy.  (Flashlights, aliens, glow sticks, Starbursts, Pop Rocks and Milky Ways)

Blowing out the candles.

Jac had a great time at the party and was absolutely exhausted the next day.  (So was mommy.)

Oh yeah, she's still talking about "The Best Birthday Party Ever" down here at our house... I'm like wait a minute, what about your own party? LOL!

One year I gave my 16 year old niece the camera and asked her to snap away... she got a ton of great pictures and I was able to enjoy enjoy the party.
