It was a great birthday party for my dear friend A’s daughter this afternoon. She officially has a tween. 🙂 Kacy is friends with my darling daughter. They are buddies.
This year’s birthday party of Kacy, darling daughter wasn’t able to attend because she is currently vacationing at her grandparents’. It was a hard decision for DD but she already had it planned. “Kacy will understand”, she said.
We had a great time at the Christmas Party at my dear friend R’s home first weekend of this month. We all agreed to have it early this year because one of our friend was leaving for Singapore and won’t be back until the week after New Year’s. Though we had to rush a few things a bit, everything went according to plan. Our theme this year was Great Gatsby. 🙂 It was a potluck and all the party needs and party supplies were bought from Amazon and Party City.
Black, gold, and silver balloons. The decorating crew was busy.
Gift wrapping crew.
The children had a blast. The games were very exciting and entertaining. Every child who were at the party was given a Christmas gift to open on Christmas Eve. Of course, grown ups exchanged gifts, too. We played the White Elephant Exchanging Gifts game and it was a lot of fun.
Darling daughter enjoyed the company of her friends as well. She said it’s one of the best days ever. I am glad. I want her to have great memories with her friends, too. Another thing is that, I want my daughter to learn the concept of sharing. In fact, she is now learning to let go of her old toys, outgrown clothes, and books and donate them which is good.
There are a lot of fun things going on this summer vacation. Besides swimming classes for darling daughter, birthday parties and special event invitations are keep coming in.
Yesterday, DD got invited to a birthday pool party. It was not a Luau Party. Just a typical kids pool party. Darling daughter enjoyed it very much. As you know, she likes swimming. My dear friends and I watched over the young ones because the pool was quite deep. That is why wearing a life preserver is very important even in a shallow pool. Age-appropriate and US Coast Guard approved life jackets should always be handy, and adult supervision is advised on young children.
Friends, happy kids, birthday party
As for the party, my dear friends and I had fun catching up while the kids were swimming in the pool. This is the very first time K and I went to a pool party. There were lots of food and we met new friends. It was awesome.
