So, I have now had my first big and expensive party! Chuck E Cheese is a great deal if you don't plan on more than 10 kids coming, otherwise, you mine as well go Zonkers or other places! I wanted smaller, since we're moving soon and need to save money! I also made the cake to save money (and tastebuds). The party went really well, considering I was late showing up and a few of the flower "petals" came off the cake! I love that the kids all got tokens, drinks, food, and I bought the goody bags from there too, to save my sanity! But, of course, I had to go extra, and I made a cupcake clip for all the girls that came. I think they're cute! It was hilarious when Chuck E came out to "sing" and these two little random girls came running up and wouldn't go away until he did, about ten minutes later! So, I kept asking if anyone knew them, and no one did. Funny kids! Kira didn't mind having a couple extra girls singing to her! Kira loved being the center of attention and all the presents! She loved everything she got! Obviously her friends all know her well! I was excited, because Kira has no candor, so she would have said something if she didn't like it! She was absolutely thrilled that Juan (her "boyfriend") gave her dolls from Barbie in a Mermaid tale. She's watched it probably ten times while I had it from the library! I liked it, so I didn't complain. And she was very excited when Juan's mom and I set up a playdate. Fun times! She went the next Wednesday and got her hair done and got prizes for playing games! She LOVED it! Now we need to invite him over. I wonder if he'll be disappointed if I don't do his hair or give him prizes after playing games?
Emma and Leah are growing up fast, which is a lot different from poor Ben, who lost 3 pounds in the last 3 months! He's on a new med that makes him very tired and hungry. Here's hoping he'll start to gain weight and height! I want him to be bigger than Kira, so she can stop holding that over his head! I can hope, right?
We went down to Emporia for the second time. We checked out a few places. And right now Scott is down there checking out places. I'm really hoping! Ben likes the duplex the best. It does have a dishwasher... We'll see, hopefully soon!
