Party In The House!

Yesterday I helped throw a party for my 2 adorable little nieces, who turned nine years old this week. My totally awesome sister planned a 'Candyland' themed party. The kids had to defeat a number of challenges to defeat the evil Jalapeno Pepper and get back to the castle! I got to be Queen Candy and, of course, anything that allows me to be Queen I'm all in for! My sister is very creative and came up with some really fun games and it was completed with a hotdog barbeque and a Candyland cake, topped with all sorts of candy, of course. The kids had a fantastic time! I would say the party was a success!

I'm thinking it would be fun to have a themed party like that for my birthday. How come the kids always get to have all of the fun? Any theme would do...Chocolate...Harry Potter...Twilight...The color yellow...Crazy hair...Crazy clothes...whatever! I think we adults sometimes need an excuse to just let it go and remember what it's like to be a kid....you know, when the worst thing that ever happened to you was that your best friend wanted to play barbies when you wanted to play house, and you were mad at each other for 5 whole minutes! Wasn't that the worst? Or your mom wouldn't let you have that 4th scoop of ice cream! She was soooo mean!... And the simplest things in the world brought numerous moments of joy...like playing with boxes, or running in circles, or giggling because someone said a gross word (poop...sshhh), or going down a slide and really conquering it by climbing back up.....

Ahhh...those were the days...

I'm totally in if it involved Chocolate or Twilight and having no cares.... I sometimes remember what it was like to not have a care in the world although I have to think back to some time before I turned 4. At 4 I started taking care of my family..... Strangely today I am still taking care of them :)

I certainly would not come if there were Oompa Loompa's involved! Sorry ladies, just can't do it. They are too too scary.

I agree with you, as adults we need to have more fun. A few days ago I was thinking that it would be fun to get together with a few people to have a game night or something fun like that. As adults we need more fun and excitement in our lives.
