Saturday Snapshot - Party!!!!

Saturday Snapshot is hosted by Alyce @ At Home With Books

So, the Faery Dance described in my Real Life Faerytale this week actually started out looking like this:


We'll call that the "Before" picture!!  When I took that, I had visions of grandeur. Orderly dancers & no frosting on the ceiling. And... After two "golden" birthdays and three back-to-back parties:


There was a totally awesome Nerf Gun War!!  And a Pinata!  A BBQ & a trip to the Arcade w/ an enthusiastic impromptu singalong. TONS of Nerf bullets all over the place. I gathered as much partay as I could find into this big box of party leftovers

As I write, the two little 'uns are battling a bunch of balloons flying in a fan.  Yep. Just get a fan going and blow up some balloons and put the two together w/ kids and you have instant entertainment. For Moms. Lol.

I'm so glad we've survived another Party Season. PHEW!!  Until next June, then!!

    1. Relief is almost my favorite part. Right after exhausted smiles on birthday kids' faces.

    1. I shoulda videoed that one, huh? It's a strong fan, so it was a very active game which required a lot of yelling. (My favorite. sarcasm thickly intended!)

  5. That's a very neat and orderly set-up in your "Before" picture. Impressive...even if there was little chance of it staying so neat!

  6. Looks like fun. I remember doing a party with my younger daughter where I let them bake and decorate little cakes, and everything throughout the house seemed to be covered in flour, sugar and icing! My Snapshot is at http://goo.gl/vTUc8

    1. Lol - that's exactly it!! It's kinda sweet and fun, but sooooo sticky, too! (Plus, flour on the floor is super slick, slipperyer than water. Ya learn that sort of thing with little people!)

  7. Looks like fun! I did a couple of craft parties for my sons when they were young, but mostly we did outdoor games. I think it would have been much different if we'd had girls, though.

    1. Oh yea. The Nerf gun war was mostly outside despite pending raining. The girls found Trinity's closet and made forts in the blanket pile with lots of giggles. Gender differences may not be a favorite topic of discussion, but I've had plenty of opportunity to see the Great Divide!! Lol
