Yesterday we got invited to a birthday party for one of our friends. They had Cinderella come. The kids all thought that was so much fun, even the boys. She brought crowns for them to make so they could be princes and princesses. She also played some really neat games with them. They had a tea party with cupcakes, chocolate milk, grapes, strawberries, jelly beans, gummy bears, and cookies. Then she sang to them, and she had an amazing voice. She really did a great job at keeping the kids entertained the entire time and she did all the work by herself. She even brought party favors. My friend was very happy that she didn't have to do any of the work. However, it cost her $250. She thought it was way worth it, I on the other hand could never imagine paying that much. Does that make me a cheap mom? I know a lot of people who do these huge parties for their kids every year. I don't know how they do it. We try to keep ours pretty low-key and my kids never seem to mind.
I am glad that they had such a fun time though. After everyone else left we stayed for pizza and then we watched "Barnyard" with the kids. It is a very cute movie, and one that even DH and I enjoyed. It was a fun and relaxing evening, which is nice sometimes.
