“When God wants a great work done in the world or a great wrong righted, he goes about it in a very unusual way. He doesn’t stir up his earthquakes or send forth his thunderbolts. Instead, he has a helpless baby born, perhaps in a simple home and of some obscure mother. And then God puts the idea into the mother’s heart, and she puts it into the baby’s mind. And then God waits. The greatest forces in the world are not the earthquakes and the thunderbolts. The greatest forces in the world are babies.” ~ET Sullivan

The second 3rd Birthday Bash

Dec 2, 2008

Happy Birthday again!...on the real day!

Here we are having another party with the little kids in the neighborhood. Little did Mom know that the parents would drop their kids off and come back an hour later--leaving me alone with seven two and three year olds all at once. (Chock one up to anti-anxiety medication that I didn't throw the kids in a room full of toys and lock myself in the bathroom to wait it out in fear)

While the menu may have been less sophisticated at this party than the first (apple slices and crackers as opposed to deli sandwhich wraps and fruit with fondue), it was no less fun. Leah enjoyed playing with her friends and showing off her rocket (which I think we had to put away in order to avoid a mutiny). We got to visit the cupcakes with birthday candles outlet again, and it was a blast for all the kids.

Here is Leah opening up some of her presents. She got story books, coloring books, and a princess tiara with bling! She also got a cookie decorating kit which we made the next day (pictures to come!)

I did surprisingly well managing all the kids solo. Thank goodness it was only an hour! I busted out the bubbles and a dollar-store game that turned out to be quite a hit. Whew!

Samuel was not left out of the fun!
