Sissy’s birthday party was yesterday and it turned out sorta okay. She had invited about 12-15 kids but only 2 girls showed up. In a way it had its ups and downs. She got to spend a lot of time with just those two friends and she really did have a fun time. On the other hand she was dissapointed that more of her friends didn’t come over. There was another friend of hers that was having a birthday party too yesterday and alot of the kids she invited went to his party instead. The two girls that came to hers were also invited to his but chose to come see her instead. She was really happy about that. she got a bunch of girly stuff like a necklace, some bracelets, perfume, lip gloss and some Hannah Montana stuff as well.
We also had the neighbors come over and their two younger ones as well so her younger brothers had someone to play with as well. All the kids enjoyed the slip and slide and I bought a kids volleyball game for the to play as well.
One of the positives about so few kids coming was all the extra cupcakes! The kids loved being able to come back for seconds and thirds. LOL
I’m thinking about plans for her party next year and considering having a last day of school party. Since their last day is just a half-day I think it would be cool to invite the kids to all come over after school and let their parents pick them up around 5. I think she’d have a lot more kids come and it would be a lot of fun for everyone. My mom said she could come and help out with the party as well so I’m not overwhelmed.
For now, we’re done with birthdays until August then we have two fo them back to back. we can start planning for them and maybe we’ll have a bit of a better turn-out
