We manufactured our own vials of pixie dust and every one was christened with their own new fairy moniker using the magical fairy wand...:*
We finished off with tiny fairy cupcakes and pixie punch. Everyone had a magical time!

We played the Angelina Ballerina Ballet game and showed off all of our best ballet positions.....
Played Pretty, Pretty Princess (or Handsome, Handsome Prince) depending on who was IT.....
Afterwards, there was the feast complete with flower sandwiches, Princess Pringles and Princess punch!
The finale came with the presentation of not one, but TWO cakes!
The first was an attempt by Mom in the form of a Royal Castle Cake.
The last, but definitely not least, was the magnificent Princess Cake, consisting of one Barbie and her 5 cake mix dress-made by our dear friend and wonder cake decorator-Sandy Wearne- Thanks Sandy!!!
At long last, the princesses and princes bid us adieu and we were left with a Precious Princess Jorja who made a beautiful, 5 yr old birthday girl.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY JO! WE LOVE YOU!

"This place is a slice of Heaven!" Afton- mid-mouthful....

This time, in addition to the green milk, there were pieces of green leprechaun gold left haphazardly in the fridge and in a trail on the kitchen floor. I remarked that we must have almost caught them in the act, because they seem to have left in a hurry, to which my clever husband added that he was almost overrun by what he thought was a giant green rat this morning! He also added that he must of scared the little guy half to death as he escaped quickly farting shamrocks all the way! This was infinitely amusing to my little ones and far better than any warnings they could have mustered.

Amazingly enough, these two frightening creatures became the "hot thing" of the evening. I watched as three of my grown brothers fought over Watto and Darth Maul (I personally think it's odd that I know these names-but my brother-in-law Chris would be proud). There were claims that they were for the children (bring on the nightmares), but it became clear that the contest was closer to home. One brother threatened to never let another brother accompany him to the movies again, if he stole the objects of desire. Another kept claiming-"but they're for my boys".....Another -when confronted with the fact that he had no children, said they were for the children of the person he was in fact trying to steal them from. What?! After all was said and done, these objects that I figured I would probably be taking home with me, were hustled away and hidden by the victor, while others pouted and threatened to carry out aforementioned threats. Bonds are not the most gracious winners.
After that, we played a couple of games, the most amusing of which was where you had to come up with an answer about your spouse in one word that started with the first letter of your last name. The all-time favorite was when Carrie came up with "Beaches" when asked to describe her husband when they were first dating. My oldest brother looked on -mortified- as everyone else broke out into "Wind Beneath My Wings" and dubbed him "Uncle Beach"from there on out. His wife claimed it was a movie they saw at the time, but we were sure that it was a comment on his sensitivity-but I digress...
I think we came out the winners in general, because we went home with a highly amusing, if not somewhat twisted book of postcards called "Breaking bad news with baby animals". Inside are tons of adorable animals delivering news such as "You're bankrupt." You get the idea.....In honor of this highly amusing book, I thought I would come up with some of my own.
