Mission Accomplished!

All summer long the girls and I have been preparing for their August birthday party. (See preparations here.) The day finally came, and as you can tell by how late my post is, it has taken me a week to recover.
But I believe it was a success. No one cried or threw up, no one fell out of the treehouse, no one was hit with the pinata bat, my girls remained polite, and with a few promptings remembered to say "thank you."

Really the worst thing that happened was Naomi smashing cake into the neighbor boy's hair.

She must like him.

Here are the highlights:
Spell the word "birthday" with playdough.
The "Redneck Ice Cream Sandwich Torte" cakes, thank you Metta.

Syrena wishing for world peace.

Sophie wishing for "every toy ever made."

The girls had everyone say a password before they could go up into the tree house.

Here are all the birthday go-ers leaning precariously on the railing of the treehouse.

Pinata frenzi!

So all's well that ends well. Thank you to all the great kids who came to our party. We love you so much and we are so glad you could celebrate with us!
