When Sis was younger, I threw big, elaborate birthday parties. I would have a fantastic theme and then work for weeks on all the details. I loved having BIG parties at home. It was always a very stressful time, as the perfectionist in me wanted it to be spectacular.
I guess I got tired. As she got older, birthdays became easier - we found locations to have a great event. Or we just planned less and less. This year, she had a great party.
We invited a few friends for a sleepover and a movie the next morning.
It was a great group of girls and all they wanted to do was play.
