Mari Morgan's 7th Birthday party

Mari Morgan wanted to go skating this year for her party. But, first, we had cupcakes, chips, and Koolaid at home. As you may have seen in my last post, we went to Ann Olivia's cupcakes in town to get her cupcakes. They don't make just your normal cupcake. They are vey fancy with glitter--perfect I thought for a seven year old girl party. There were many to choose from, but we chose the chocolate chip cheesecake frosting on yellow cake. After I passed them out, all the girls were just sitting there. I told them to go ahead and eat, and MM finally blurted out, these cupcakes are awful. It was hilarious. Only 1 girl liked the cupcakes. So, we happened to have some chocolate frosting in the cabinet and re-iced them all with that. They were pleased.
Then, we all got into the car, and traveled to Skate Oddesy in Horn Lake for a little skating. The place was packed, but we lined all the girls up to get their skates. The worker told us that there were no more skates left in their sizes. They had to use some preschool plastic skates. Ha! The party definately had its problems, but I think everyone ended up having a good time! We came back to our house, opened presents, played a game, made jewelry and played outside. This will be a birthday party we won't forget! Oh, and her bff, Karis, spent the night.(cherry on top)

Found the banner in my party supply box, and the Lemonds' supplied the balloons!

Princess crowns left over from last years party, and a leftover blue table cloth did the trick!

7 candles on the not-so-good cupcake :(
