We had Peyton's little birthday party last night. I didn't take any pictures of it. I didn't even wrap my son's presents. I, the hater of the gift bag. The gift was in a box. It would have been so easy to wrap. And, wrapping presents is very near to the top of my list of favorite things to do. But, I had neglected this task. So, I had to resort to a gift bag. I felt awful about it.
But still, the party was fun. We had a fondue party. Or, perhaps is was more of a sauce party? We served various sauces (Cheese fondue, Tzatziki, Chimichurri, Peanut Sauce) along with a variety of foods to eat with them. Bread, vegetables, meats...
We set up a couple of kid's tables with their own spread. I used lollipop sticks for them, since skewers are too deadly for two year olds. You could also use craft/Popsicle sticks.
The kid sauces were Velvetta Cheese, Ranch Dressing, Peanut Butter & Yogurt Fruit Smoothie.
Their dippers included, graham crackers, marshmallows, french fries, strawberries, bananas, carrots, chicken & more.
It was really cute to watch all the kids standing around the little tables, sampling everything. I think Peyton loved it. He was a little grazer.
I made a giant cupcake cake. I thought it looked kinda funny. But, the kids were so delighted with it. They are always so affirming in stuff like that!
Here's the leftovers.
We have almost finished it off today.
I woke up this morning not feeling too great. I felt like I was getting sick. Maybe I was just tired. A couple of the kiddies didn't sleep too well last night.
I'd been up a few minutes & had the genius idea of having some cake (a bit of a cure-all, you know). So, I shouted, "Who wants cake for breakfast?!" Gillian had to ask me to clarify what I had just said. Perhaps couldn't believe her own ears.
