Here's how the day went.
Ally's STILL sick so no MDO, Drop Ally off at Grandma's, Errands and more Errands, hospital visit to keep my friend Erica company while her mom was in surgery, a text from Mark that we have to take Ally back to Dr. Nesmith, Dr. visit followed by a complete mental breakdown. And oh yeah the party's at 5:30. UUGGHH!!! Ally was diagnosed with strep last week so we've been very low key for an entire week now. Her fever would not go away so we went back to the doctor to find out she now has the flu as well as the original strep. Ya'll know that news just did me in. My sweet husband took the afternoon off from work knowing I would need his shoulder to cry on-thank goodness for his intuition. At one point Ally was praying for me. She kept saying, "Dear God, it's OK" . I mean she is the sweetest!!! And then she asked Mark to bring me some ice water to make mommy better:-) After an hour, several phone calls and some serious delegating we were having the party. Ryan has been looking forward to this forever and he had a fantastic time.
The *Cersey Professional Party Planning Team had everything looking amazing. Thank you sisters. There is no way I could have done this without you. Don't mess with these three. Princess Leia has nothing on us:-)
(*Cersey is a name my dad used to call Caryn, Kacey and our dog Lindy growing up. It's a combo of all Purdy names)
Some party Padawans
The kids played in the gym the entire time-note Ryan's sweatiness. I'm pretty sure sweatiness=FUN!
Click on this picture to see the all the kids with Darth Vader. Each Jedi got to have a foam light saber for the party. I wish I could upload some video of the smacking, hitting and smiles that went on during the party. Even little baby Clark got to get in on the light saber action.
Now it was time for some Galactic pizza, light sabers, The Force Fruit salad, Vaderade, Jedi Juice, Ewok Eats and The Dark Side chips and dip.
And then cake and Yoda Soda.
Singing Happy Birthday to my little Jedi in training.
Ryan told me not to get a cake this year but I figured his friends might enjoy it! How can you have a party without cake?

Onto the gifts

We really did have a wonderful party. Ryan wanted to make sure his sister got to see the balloons, have a piece of cake and experience some of the party when we got home. Melt. my. heart. I have a feeling that this is a scene I will be seeing a lot at my house.
Feel better soon my little princess!
I know I say this every year but I cannot beleive that my baby is 6!
Daddy and I love you so much and we are so proud of you this year. We love that you love kindergarten and that you are storing God's word in your heart. It has been awesome to hear you ask very important questions about becoming a beliver. That is the most important thing in your life and I feel extremely blessed to know that you are starting to really get it. I am also thrilled beyond words at how sweet you are to Ally and your cousins. It is awesome to watch you with them. I hope you have a wonderful day today. HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!!! Love you baby boy!
