*blogger deleted my pictures, please bear with my while i repost them*
the dude turns three.
i had seen a hundred different circus party ideas..
i decided to play off the whole '3 ring circus' idea..
the invites (which i apparently never photographed) were again over the top.
small round favor tins filled with star confetti..
i found the perfect favor containers..
paper popcorn containers from hobby lobby..
filled with circus type goodies.
kazoo's shaped like clown lips
(you get the idea)
i had even learned my lesson with the cake bit.
i switched it up & thought the ice-cream cone cupcakes would be so fun for this theme..
and they turned out awesome..
all 2 dozen of them.
along with the 48 or so corndogs we made.
(very circus-like right?)
we had a bounce house & a clown.
the clown was late.
but at least she showed up.
almost no-one else did.
i'm not kidding.
out of the 30 something people who were coming..
8 showed up.
& only TWO were kids.
if you thought the tears over the cake were bad..
i won't tell you how many times i cried that day.
i was so sad for him.
does he look sad?
eventhough he broke his arm just a few weeks before..
he had a blast.
and the ones who did show up?
a couple aunts & uncles..
nana & papa
the dudes friends cogan & lacey & their mamas.
they did their best to cheer me up.
my mom & aunt even went so far as to have their faces painted because i was so upset
everyone laughed & stuffed 2 & 3 & 4 corndogs & cupcakes down because i was upset
over the thought of the wasted food.
and my aunts even jumped in the bounce house to make me feel better.
but the dude.
he just had fun..
& didn't know that everyone bailed on him.
he just enjoyed those that were there.
next up.. his fourth birthday bomb... involving cake.... AGAIN.
