Happy 6th birthday!
My baby turned 6 on Saturday. I think she had a good day. She got to lounge around in her pajamas till 10:00 or so, opened her presents in her pajamas. Then when she had to get dressed, she got to put on her Halloween costume because her party was Saturday and she had asked for a Halloween themed party.
After the first couple of kids finished eating, I announced this plan and immediately every child got up, left the kitchen and stampeded towards where I had the pumpkins set up.
Then I forgot to do one of the games I had planned, which actually bummed me out.
They opened presents, ate cake, trashed Jessica's room and left with party bags. All in all, a success.
Now I kind of feel like Halloween is over, even though it's not for another 2 weeks.
