It's a Paaaawwwty!

In a rush to get to bed last night b/c my sciatica flared up, I left bags upon bags of birthday party supplies on the couch. This morning Kairi found them. I told her that they were special for her birthday party, and that the party was after church and her nap. That was when it began. Pawty pawty pawty pawty pawty pawty pawty pawty...... They talked about it in class, talked about it in nursery, she drug her daddy out of the church to get home for the pawty, talked about it on the way home. (I stayed home to catch up on all that I should have done the night before but hurt too badly to do -- didn't help, I was still in pain in the morning but at least I was rested.) She refused to take a nap because of her excitement for the pawty.

I was running late, of course, and the party began about 20 minutes after it should have, but several guests were late as well, so it worked.

Here's the pawty with running commentary.

We had these hanging from the ceiling in various places -- different shades of pink.

The spread -- minus the pretzel butterflies (cream cheese stuffed celery w/ pretzels for butterfly wings) which weren't done yet.

She climbed into Mr. Heath's (Carter's dad) lap to have her book read to her.
