The other day we threw a party. We were celebrating the fact that Mandy needed to write a blog post about throwing a party. We invited the neighbors under the pretense that we couldn't eat all the cake.
Since it was a blog-inspired party, we had to document the event for later posting. Below is the glorious scene. Doesn't it look inviting?
Of course, that's the view the blog world sees. I had a much better view of how it really went down. The ten year old on the right had not view at all.
On a side note, yes, that's a Minnie Mouse pinata. No, we do not have a plethora of them (Mandy does not get this reference). And no, we didn't need to hit it with a stick to get the candy. Instead, each kid took a turn pulling one ribbon from the bottom of the pinata until it gently released its cache. Sound safe? Yes. Sound fun? Not so much. Half of the excitement of a pinata is watching the other kids duck the blindfolded kid's random swings.
