The more I think about it, the happier I am. Mia's party was a total success!!! A really big part of it was Cara's invaluable help!! The party wouldnt have been possible without her!! We were suppose to order some snacks or order a pizza (we werent sure), but the night before Cara offered herself to cook... She actually loves baking, and she had tons of ideas (easy for her, unknown to me).

We had a water problem with some broken pipes in the neighborhood, and we got dirty water!! So, we actually had to clean the whole water cistern and get new clean water from a "water truck". Most people didnt RSVP and a lot of people said they were not coming.... At the end, we got the exact same kids that we were expecting!!

The menu was:
- Fairy Bread (a yummy hit in Australia for kid's parties)
- Cheerio Slices (made with sugar, cheerios and MnM's)
- Mini Pizzas (made with Pita bread, jam, cheese, tomato sauce and pineapple)
- Mini Hot-Dogs
- Meatballs
- Jello (I made several flavors)
- Several sweets all over the house (like Oreos, Gummy Bears, Fruity snacks, MnM's, etc)
- And of course, the cupcakes which were "Oreo Surprise Cupcakes" as Mia is a chocolate lover.
Everybody was really pleased (kids and adults), and the food was very complimented!

As the purpose of the party was to make Mia to ENJOY and have FUN, the party had everything that she loves: flip flops (as she doesnt like shoes), water, lots of food, painting and kids! We got 369 pictures, including the photographer's pictures, and even though I tried to select just a few, but there is still an overload!! ENJOY!

Erica: Maria Paula and Camila are close in age (born in the same year), and they have so many things in common.... the way they act, their traveruras, how the like to eat a lot, and so on....

Erica said...

I swear they look like twins ....its so cute...I can imagine how they must be so much more alike in person. im glad her party was a success ....it looks like they had a great time!!!

Momto3LittleFlowers said...

Erica: It was REALLY fun!!! People are not used to having kids getting messy on parties and they wanted to kill me when I asked for an old extra cloth... But, it was totally worth it!! It was a mess, but it was sooo fun!!! and even three older boys that were there (around 8 years old) had a blast!!
