Birthday Party Fun

Saturday we had a birthday party for Veronica at our house.  We lucked out and had perfect weather!  I like my at home parties.  I rent a bounce house, make the cake, and Clint grills hot dogs and/or burgers.  They can last all day instead of being locked into a time frame.

Veronica handed out 20 invitations between school and dancing.  I know from experience that RSVPing has gone out of style, but I always put an RSVP request anyway and hope for the best.  I had three Moms say they were coming, which was pretty good.  A few others just showed up, so Veronica was especially happy to see some unexpected friends.

What I don't understand is how a parent who has never met us can just drop their eight year old kid off at the curb and drive away.  Not one, but TWO parents did just that.  I watched as a small red Mini Cooper slowed in front of our house, a little girl jumped out, and the card sped off with out anyone ever looking back to see if she made it inside or if it was the right house.  That same little girls vanished mid-party.  No one came to the door to pick her up.  Someone had to have gone around the side of the house to the backyard, and she left with out saying good bye to Veronica or letting anyone know.  I was looking for her and she was no where to be found, so we could only assume that she left.  How can a parent sneak off like that with out even saying hello??   Whoever picked her up did so very quickly and quietly because we were outside off and on and my back door was wide open with all the kids going in and out.

Anyway, Veronica had a great day with her friends, cake, and presents!   I still can't believe my baby is nine.

  1. Happy belated birthday to Veronica! My son was a crier too - I don't think he stopped for a moment during the first three months of his life.

  2. Happy Belated Birthday to Veronica. She is growing up fast and looking so pretty!

  3. Great Birthday Party! Really liked all these photos and cake looks delicious. My daughter wants a great party on her upcoming birthday. I am thinking an outdoor Mickey Mouse party at her favorite venue NYC. Hope it’s available on 24th May.
