...should be titled by hook or by crook, or spontaneity rocks, or there's nothing like winging it , but don't mention the cake. You know, one of my favorite things about my kids' birthday parties are the cakes. Just keep that in mind.
Now, back to the party. Cameron wanted a Cirque du Soliel party but I didn't feel that I had the time to get everything ready since we had been out of town visiting family. We were going to opt for a pamper party with hair and nails getting all done up and a little entertainment. But she really wanted a Cirque du Soliel party. So the night before the party, after having a nice dinner with our friends who will soon be moving, I sent Mark and Raeley to Hobby Lobby and the beginning of a Cirque du Soliel party started. The night before. After dinner at a restaurant. Brilliant. But I had been talking about it with Cameron since we went to see Cirque du Soliel a few months ago, so we had lots of ideas.
So, what did we do for a party? We face painted. We painted nails and fixed their hair Cirque du Soliel style. While we did all that, we watched Cirque du Soliel perform on the TV. Not only did it keep them still while they were being made up, the music to the show made great background music for the party! Then we made funky hats. Cameron's great uncle, whom we call Sonny, performed a magic show for them. He was GREAT! He did such an awesome job and made Cameron feel special. The adults enjoyed it just as much as the kids. He really topped the party off! I must say, Cameron had great ideas and I have really got some cool kids with great ideas! The boys had a different idea on what the face painting should be about! Doesn't Robert look eerily like The Joker in Batman Begins?
