The girls' friend birthday party was held at a dance studio this year. Unfortunately, the weather around here is too unpredictable in April to plan for an outdoor party and our home most definitely could not hold that many people. We were unsure as to how many kids would be able to attend because the party was the weekend before school vacation week. Amazingly enough, almost everyone RSVPed with a yes. The studio told us that our party was the largest one yet.
I typically only buy the girls new dance outfits at the beginning of the school year, and they really only need two each, but as a special treat, the girls each picked out a new dance leotard for the party.
(I just love cute stuff like dolls in strollers.)
I didn't really take any pictures during the party but a great time was had by all. And yes, we did sing Happy Birthday three different times.
I thought I was being super clever by baking cupcakes in ice cream cones. Have you ever had these? You have to eat them the same day they are made, before the cones start to soften up. I thought it would be less messy for the kids. Well, it turns out some of them didn't realize that you ate the cone too. They were just eating the cupcake and frosting off the top. Oh, well. We had Hoodsie Cups as well so everyone was happy. I also thought I was being super clever by having Grammy make headbands for the party favors. That idea, fortunately, was a huge hit.
I often like to joke that while it most certainly wasn't easy having triplet infants or toddlers, my payback is happening now. One birthday party a year for three kids. Thank you very much.
