I survived!

January 25, 2010

There wasnt any question about it I knew I was completely nuts to even attempt this party. Let alone after having been sick as heck for almost a week. But I have to say it was shaping up pretty good before the party started. The only thing I was truly worried about was if A) We were going to have enough room for the amount of kids who were coming over, B) Was anyone going to get hurt and C) If there was going to be any massive fights break out. Luckily for me… aside from one injury to one of our beloved babysitters, we didnt have any injuries, nothing major in the fight department and due to a few no shows we had sufficient amount of room for the amount of children we had. (We ended up with 12 kids under the age of 10 total, and our four babysitters.)

We were lucky though. Most people arent as lucky as we are. We have four very awesome and wonderful babysitters who have proven themselves completely invaluable time after time. I know I would have been so stressed if they had not been able to make it. I honestly dont know if I would have been able to pull it off as stress free as I did with out them. Yes I repeated myself and said the same thing in two different ways, but I have no words that can accurately describe what these four mean to me and the girls who love them so much.

The Cake itself was a wonder, and I have to give myself two pats on the back for bringing my brain child out of my head and onto a plate. It is most certainly one of the most, if the most, elaborate cake I have made to date. And folks believe me when I say I tend to go a bit nuts on my cakes when kids are involved. But this one I think took the cake. Pun intended.

It took 4 cakes, two 9×9″ cakes and 2 9×13″ cakes, all made from scratch, dyed pink, 6 tubs of icing, dyed to make those colours, 2 packages of candy belts and a whopping two hours to decorate. But the look on their faces when I walked around the corner made it all worth while.

Every moment I dragged myself through in the last two days… heck even the back ache I am tending to as I write this. The prep time to get it all ready in time, the groggy just-getting-over-a-cold feeling that I pushed back and the headache I woke up with this morning. All of it was worth it to see them happy as they were.

Dad provided a lot of the entertainment for the day and I must say he did a bang up job!

And I know for fact that although he was beaten pretty badly by a pack of rabid girl children, he was more than happy with the way things turned out too.
