They turned out better than I expected! Shutterfly did a great job!
I mentioned a while back that I was planning on having M's party at Monkey Joe's, a bouncy house. Well, hubs & I decided to wait a few more years for that. We are going to have her party at a local playground. It is much cheaper and this way I feel like we can invite her friends, but also other adults and all have a great time. Also, I don't have to worry about how many kid I invite and don't have to plan games or activities. The kids can play until they are all tired out!
With Madi's birthday party fast approaching I'm starting to stress a bit. I'm inviting about 16-20 kids, so here's my stressor - party favors are going to be insanely expensive. I just don't want to give out a bag filled with random odds & ends, because honestly when M gets those I just toss it. I'm serious. She is never going to play with a spinning top for more than 2 minutes & I don't want to have to store that stuff. I'm sorry if this too honest. :) In all fairness, I do let her keep the stickers.
I thought about giving each child a coloring book with crayons; however, this would still cost me about $40 and some of the kids are too old for that. Ahhhh. What to do, what to do. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!
