Birthday/Halloween Party....WHEW!

Ok......first question you are going to ask......"Am I Nuts"....the answer would be ...yes! We had two parties in one day. Lyza's 2nd birthday party was from 11:30-1:30 pm......Then at 2:30 pm 8 girls arrived for an overnight halloween party.....and as I type, another is on her way!

Lyza was not feeling well for her party today...she did like jumping.....she did not like anything else! Poor thing....I just didn't know what to do for her! But after ice cream she laid down for a 3 hr nap and woke up perfectly fine. She dove right in to playing with all her new toys and thought the stroller from Grandma and Grandpa M was the best I think! I really thought she would try to sit in it, but she pushed her dolls around for quite some time. Then we got out the Little People camping set from Grandma and Grandpa M and she loved that too! She loved sitting in her new Dora chair from Nonny and doing her new puzzles from Aunt Pam and Uncle Melvin! She liked talking on her new phone from Nanna too!! She talked on it for awhile to "Nonny" :-)) She jumped in the jumping house for 45 mintues and laughed her head we were so glad she was finally feeling better and back to herself. It is too bad she was such a grouch and not feeling well for her party. That's life though....some things can't be helped. Thanks to everyone that came for helping out so much and all the wonderful gifts! I will post more pic's of that on another day!

My favorite gift.....a scrapbook of Lyza's first 2 years of life from Becky, Juliana and Amaya. It was SOOOO sweet and just perfect. I can't stop looking at it! THANK YOU Becky!!! What a treasure!

Madisyn's crew loved the jump house and we had it until 8 pm so we did A LOT of jumping!!! Pretty funny stuff that we did get some video of that I will have to post! These girls are CRAZY!!! We then ate dinner down by the firepit.....jumped some more....then swung into the pinata! Pretty funny! After that we jumped more....told stories in the jump house...some truth or dare :-) Then we decorated pumpkins and Chris picked out the two he liked best for prizes!! We have just put Lyza down for the night.....we are headed to the firepit to make smores.....then we will bob for apples before they lay down to watch a movie!

Will post more pic's later...I don't have time to label all these, but enjoy what I have to share for now!!

It was a wonderful party and a wonderful day! Thanks for including us. Glad that Lyza is feeling better - though I have never met a 2 year old who was "happy" throughout their party.
And you are so welcome for the scrapbook - I loved making it. Who wouldn't love looking at all those pictures of Adorable Lyza!
