I survived the Star Wars Jedi Training Academy 2009 (otherwise known as Annelise's 6th birthday party).
It was some kind of crazy.
I'll do a full post soon, but I will go ahead and mention: 1.) there were 18 children ages 3-10, 2.) I did not freak out when told, "My ice cream is under the table", 3.) one poor girl was stung by a wasp but carried on bravely, 4.) I am not a pretty sweater (not the garment, the action), it's drippy and some kind of ugly, 5.) Praise the Lord! It did not rain until after the obstacle course, 6.) I am forever grateful for the many helpful hands of friends and parents that made things go much more smoothly. Thank you, thank you, thank you (you know who you are)!!
The house is now back together and I am back in my calm, happy place. It may be time for another cupcake...wanna join me?
