Gracie's 5th Birthday Party

Last year for Gracie's birthday I was going to go all out! But I was not feeling up to par being pregnant and everything so I vowed that her 5th birthday would be AWESOME! :) So I made 40 cupcakes, practiced a Ferris wheel cake(for the circus theme), called my cousin Tyson for a magic show, rented bounce houses, and got her gifts! She talked about for weeks! Is it my circus party yet? Then I prepared everything the night before, I am a super perfectionist and didn't want to stress out the whole day. At 2:00 a.m. I heard crying, so I ran to her room and she was throwing up! Not just then but on the hour after! She cried, "mom call my friends and tell them to cancel the party, I don't feel very good." That settled it I knew this was not a 24 hour quick flu so I gave as many cupcakes away as possible and was forced to eat the rest! :) We rescheduled and this was the best party ever! She ran all night long and so did her cousins! Such a blast! Will I do this every way! But every few will definitely be worth the money! We love Gracie so much! She has got and endless amount of energy and such a spunky personality which is a curse sometimes! I love watching her run around and play hence the bounce house and slide! She had the best day ever!

So sad we couldn't come!! And how sad is it that you had to cancel the first one and eat all those cupcakes!!

And yes I do watch colorsplash for inspiration :) and yes my kids do dress up for Thanksgiving (it was actually for preschool :) and yes my tree is elevated on a rubbermaid so that it can look down on everyone elses- and because it fits more presents that way :)

Haha It actually looks pretty cheesy without it!
