And A Good Time Was Had by All


We had our daughter's party yesterday. It was a beautiful day and she, I think, had a wonderful time. We are so lucky to have so many nice friends and family members to come and celebrate with us. Because she was home schooled, we had our own little celebration. I am glad it is done and I can rest today. 



My chickens were a topic of conversation. They were so quiet no one even knew they were just behind the garage. One by one folks would hear that I had them and would take a peek.


We had Panda Express. Made it so easy for me. So many left overs we will be having Chinese for dinner tonight. YES!!


And because donuts are the new cupcake, we had tons of them. I just kept filling the plates. They were very popular.



And you have to have smores if you light the fire pit.
I made a basket ahead for all the kids.



Bella Luna!! Did anyone see the moon and how bright it was last night??

Wow, your patio holds tons of people! The party looks like so much fun. Happy Birthday to your daughter!!!

Panda Express sounds great, and I love leftover Chinese food.

I missed seeing the moon because it was so overcast here. Trip called me from the beach wanting Shelley and me to see it.

Have a relaxing Sunday!!! You and your family are all so *pretty*

It looks like everything went wonderfully!

I was getting all stressed over fitting in our homeschool graduation in May between birthdays, mothers day, everyone in our circle traveling out in different weeks -- then a friend said to just do it in June -- so, relief! And I get the benefit of seeing yours and seeing how to keep it simple!

Looks like your family's special day was great.

Happy Birthday to your daughter. I would have come over if I had known you were serving doughnuts! I love those, but rarely eat them since I have zero willpower and can't eat just one. Looks like everyone had a great time, which makes for a successful party. Have a great week Elaine!

I love the Panda Express idea for the party. Yummy and you were able to enjoy the party too, and not be in the kitchen all evening. Your daughter is LOVELY!
Congratulations to her! And, to you - job well done Homeschool Mom. My dd is completing her Jr. year so we will be doing something similar next year.
