Part 2 Fun!

I'm back to share Abby's 6th birthday party and her week with me (Nannie) and Poppy. I can't tell you how happy I am to have had my kids at a young age, because it takes all your strength, and that's with good children!

Her party was at the Town Hall where you can rent a room, so lots of space and they clean up, after you take back your decorations etc.

Here are a few pictures and activities

Before the party, Nannie watching them so Mommy and Daddy could get everything ready to go!


                                                                      Town Hall Room
                                   Did I mention there were 18 children and most parents stayed!

                                                                        Birthday bunting

 Lots of hugging, craft table, musical chairs, pin the horn on the unicorn, smash the piƱata, egg (plastic with beans in it) race (don't recommend), gifts, unicorn cake and dinosaur cake. They were both yummy.....how do I know, I had to taste both...Right!!
The kids had a great time. It was a 2 hour party which is plenty of time. If you know what I mean!

Then Miss Abby came and visited during the week because school was out for Spring break.
Here's a snippet of what we did.

Healthy breakfast, clay making, jewelry box decorating, bird house painting, to the park two days in a row (beautiful weather), and lots of coloring. Lots of fun! My goal was to not put the TV on too much and to get Abby tired. It worked for ME   : ) 
So it has been busy and now I am back to work tomorrow and life goes back to whatever "normal" is. Off to New York this weekend for a visit to see our daughter Leslie and her boyfriend. We are so excited to visit and see the "BIG APPLE". I will take lots of picture. Fingers crossed for good weather.

Thanks for visiting, loved sharing my weeks with you in 2 parts. Hope you leave a comment because I just love them!!!

  4. The party looked such fun Robin and I know just what you mean by 2 hours being just right ;0) Abbey obviously had a wonderful time with her Nannie, so much fitted in to just one week. Enjoy seeing your other daughter, we have only visited New York once before and we LOVED it! Have fun,
