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.
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.
Cousin K’s First Birthday Party at Play Street Museum in McKinney ( Momimhar posted on November 10th, 2017 )
Few weeks ago my darling daughter and I were invited to cousin K’s 1st birthday party at Play Street Museum in McKinney (TX). Oh how time flies so fast.
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.
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.
We always enjoy having company and shooting fireworks on 4th of July Independence Day celebration. We are not great at hosting parties but we make sure we have lots of food to accommodate our guests.
Here is our simple menu:
Pancit (rice noodles)
Smoked red snapper
Smoked hotdogs for kids
Tomatoes and cucumbers salad
Our friends also brought some delicious food and desserts to share.
Since we do not have a big dining area, we bought a couple of tables and chairs from Walmart. I bought two long blue rectangular table covers to cover the tables. Adding patriotic banners around each table made it look pretty neat.
Then around 9:00 P.M., we started shooting fireworks until 11:00 P.M.
