Sixth Birthday Party

Last Sunday was Margot's sixth birthday party. We hosted sixteen kids at our house for her party. It was madness. Pure and utter madness. Very loud madness.

We played some party games - hot potato, pin-the-horn-on-the-unicorn, and ring toss. Brodie built an awesome obstacle course in the backyard and we ran them through it over and over even thought it was about 45 degrees and raining. (No one complained. They loved the obstacle course - especially the rope swing! They also loved running through and breaking the tape at the end of the course. Everyone got a medal.)

Margot requested a snowman cake and her wish was granted. I baked the cake and made the frosting and Brodie decorated the cake. In lieu of a pipe, Brodie placed a single candle in the snowman's mouth. Har har har.

Here are most of the guests in a photo. They look sweet, don't they? But there are many screamers in that group. Don't let the innocence you see in this photo fool you.

Finally, here are Min's friends singing happy birthday. All in all it was a great day, but next year we will definitely do something a little more low key.
