And then, at 5 p.m, magic! The rain stopped. The sky began to brighten and blue patches appeared. We got the yard tidy and the party areas set up. Truly the goddess was smiling on us. Course maybe she thinks anyone crazy enough to have a passle of kids in their back yard every year for a party deserves a little help. LOL
Back inside we made the party favors. The chosen theme was "rock star" so we have everything tied into rock star bandannas. They look cute. By tomorrow night I will likely be exhausted, but I do like doing this. It really gives the kids a chance to work on skills, plus see their friends and I get to chat with some of the grownups who are all people I like.
Good thing I like to party as next week is the family BBQ hosted here by yours truly. I need a nap!
