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 year...no 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!
