A Movie Party

An 8 year old's birthday party. Movie style.

You needed one of these to get in.

The Princess greeted her guests with one of these.

We played games to collect a bunch of these.

So you could line up here.

And buy whatever you wanted to watch the movie.

The Eldest and The Boyfriend got in on the fun. The Monkey bought a lot of candy.

1 headache, 1 spilled pop, popcorn covering the ground, nary a vegetable eaten (and they were FREE - I don't get it) and 3 hours later, the 8 year old's movie party came to a close.

"Take your popcorn containers! Here, let me stuff them with more candy to eat on the way home!"

Then I tucked The Princess into bed and she said, "Thank you for doing all that stuff for me today, Mom. It was really good. *pause* What theme are we going to do for my 9th birthday?"

Happy Birthday, My Princess. Next year's theme is "Let's go swimming at your father's pool/skate at his ice rink". Oh, but I've scheduled a massage for that day so I can't be there.
